Xbox One has been claimed as an entertainment driven home console, with all the integration between apps and other social features it is truly next generation. However, there is a lot more to be done and this is one of those steps.

With today’s Xbox One June update, Microsoft has introduced more than 45 new apps to the console.

Jana Messerschmidt the VP Business Development and Platform at Twitter shed light on the possibilities that such additions are going to bring to your Xbox One experience:

People turn to Twitter every day to enjoy and engage in the real-time conversations about their favorite TV shows. We’re enhancing that experience on the Xbox One with a unique Watch with Twitter integration.

It will now be easier to discover what shows are trending in real-time on Twitter, tune-in and follow the conversation right from within the Xbox One interface. We are excited to work with the Xbox One team and continue to deliver unique entertainment experiences.

After the addition of these apps, their catalogue total will increase by 25 percent to 225 apps.
