Xbox One: Twitter, Vine, and More

June 4, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


Along with the June update, Microsoft had something else to announce for the Xbox One today: the arrival of 46 additional apps.

According to Microsft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, two of the most interesting apps on their way are Twitter and Vine. You’ll be able to use Twitter when you watch TV through your Xbox One, and it will display Tweets relevant to your program. With Vine, you can both watch videos and send your own videos from Upload Studio to Vine.

Watch the video below to see Major Nelson demonstrate the Twitter-TV integration (and turn on closed captioning for a bit of unintentional amusement at the start).

Interested? Take a look at the full list of new apps and tell us what others you’d like to see brought to your consoles.
