By Marc Caccamise, 2 years ago
On the chance that you've found yourself wanting more entertainment options on your Xbox One and Xbox 360, your wish has been answered. Microsoft has announced that more than 45 new entertainment apps will become available between the two consoles by the end of the holiday season. When all of the aforementioned apps are released, it will bring the total amount of apps available on the two consoles to more than 225. Now that Microsoft has also made its apps accessible to all members, regardless of Xbox Live Gold status, it undoubtedly assures that no matter what your interests may be, you'll find some sort of entertainment option on Xbox that fits your taste.

One of the bigger apps to be announced is Twitter. The Twitter app will be directly integrated into the Xbox One's TV experience, allowing users to see tweets about the show they're watching, as it happens. OneGuide will also contain a new trending section, which will show what other people are watching and tweeting about at that moment, so that you can keep up on the popular shows of the night.

Jana Messerschmidt, VP of Business Development and Platform at Twitter, discussed the new integration on Xbox One:

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.
Here's a video of Major Nelson providing a rundown on what the Watch with Twitter integration will be all about:

The MLG app is already available on the Xbox 360, and in the coming weeks it will make the jump to the Xbox One as well. Besides being able to watch the broadcasted professional eSports tournaments, users will also be able to watch other produced content. such as MLG's news show, "eSports Report." For those who already have the app on the Xbox 360, you can catch the MLG X Games Invitational this weekend from June 6th to 8th, and perhaps the app will be available on Xbox One in time for the MLG Championship in Anaheim from June 20th to 22nd.
