Xbox One Windows 10 Store and Apps Coming in June?

By   /   7 months ago
Xbox One System Software Update

A common complaint of the Xbox One ever since its release has been that there aren’t enough apps on it; while it claims to be an all-in-one entertainment console, most of its apps are only for streaming Netflix or Hulu or Crunchyroll, or watching people stream on Twitch.

And while it does have a web browser, who wants to use Internet Explorer when there are better alternatives?

However, it seems that soon any sort of waiting for that is finally over, according to WinBeta, Xbox One Windows 10 functionalities could very well be on the way.

Xbox One Windows 10 could essentially be an Xbox One version of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. All of the apps used on the PC version could also be made available on the Xbox One.

Windows 10 has also allowed owners of both gaming platforms to be able to stream Xbox One games to your Windows 10 PC, and play Xbox games that are specifically optimized for Windows 10.

Gamers playing their PCs will also be able to stay connected to their Xbox Live community, using party chats, and even cross-device multiplayer.

Xbox One users will also be able to use Twitter while on their console, using the function Tweet It, along with the Twitter companion function Fenice, a previously Windows 10-exclusive app.

Using Facebook to find people on your Xbox One friend list will also be a possibility, with Xbox gamers being able to find their Facebook friends using the system’s Facebook friend finder, which you can link to your Xbox Live account.

On the Windows 10 side, gamers can also add their voices to game clips, or buy Games for Gold or Games With Gold games via their Windows PC’s Xbox app.

This cross-platform functionality gives the Xbox One a leg-up on the PS4, which does not have connectivity to the Playstation 4 the same way that the Xbox One does.
