Xbox One adds five new apps, including Pandora
The Xbox One continues to expand its role as a multimedia device after introducing five new apps this week that will deliver even more media to the console.
The new apps are: Bravo Now, Pandora, Popcornflix, Telemundo, and Vevo. The apps focus on TV, music, and streaming movies, and they join a pair of other, high-profile video service apps that debuted earlier this month, the HBO and Showtime apps.
The apps are an interesting mix that will likely appeal to a fairly disparate group. Of the five, the Pandora app is the headliner. It will bring a new music service to the console – more music apps are always a good thing. Popcornflix and Vevo will both expand the video content available to owners, while the others are a bit more niche. The Telemundo and Bravo apps both offer fans of those networks content, and fans of programs like Top Chef will be pumped to see the show find a home on the Xbox One.
All five apps are available now.
