    When the YouTube app of the Xbox One showed on my menu one thing went through my mind: "It's gonna be really uncomfortable, and the only reason I may use it one day will be when I'm too lazy to turn on my PC"
    To my pleasure, it did not only turned out exactly like I said, but also without any warning or sign while watching a video an achievement popped out... Something I would never ask or want from an app.
    The good side of it is that the achievements can be boosted in no time, and really don't mean a threat to any cheevo hunter out there.
    So let's get on with the features this app offers.

    GOOD POINTS:
    -It has a fast streaming and loading system for the videos, making you able to watch any video as fast as possible without any problem.
    -You can link your phone to your Xbox and then use your phone as a better remote controller than the Xbox. How ever you have to often use a long code to do it.

    BAD POINTS:
    -You can't see comments or comment.
    -You can't choose the quality of the video, which is one of the most frustrating things that anyone with a big HD TV has to struggle with.
    -You can't navigate with full freedom and speed through the interface. You feel like driving a car with an ATARI stick.
    -You can't use voice commands to search in case you have a kinect.

    planting42Smartglass or the Win 10 Xbox apps are much better than the phone integration IMO

    RidiculousBoxYou can choose quality on the Xbox 360 version of the app, and you could select things with a kinect with your arm, but that was in 2014 and this is what I remember

    ZatanLovesGod15After the latest updates you can indeed choose the resolution. But the Kinect no longer offers the "choose with your hand" feature.
