Xbox One Gets MTV and Reddit Apps in North America

Xbox One will be receiving a couple of new apps in North America, with the new ReddX reddit app now available to download ahead of the launch of a new MTV app for the console later this week. There'll be updates for Twitch on the way shortly too.

ReddX is the first ever reddit app you can use on your TV, and it can be snapped while you're gaming or using another app, so that you can keep an eye on threads and choose to interact with other users if it takes your fancy. You can read text, view images, videos and GIFs, using the zoom function to get a closer look on your TV. You'll also be able to upvote and downvote threads at the touch of a button, adding comments using a controller, media remote or using Xbox SmartGlass on your device of choice.

MTV is also set to launch in the US for Xbox One, offering sneak peeks, bonus clips, recent full episodes of select MTV series (with a TV subscription) and other content. The app also includes pop culture news, fashion stuff and behind-the-scenes looks at blockbuster movies.

And finally, Twitch will be getting new features in a forthcoming update, with auto zoom for Kinect when broadcasting, audio capture from headsets when Kinect isn't plugged in and a 'watch with friends' section that enables you to see what up to six friends are viewing on Twitch. If none of your friends are viewing Twitch channels, the 'watch with friends' home screen is hidden.

Look out for the ReddX app in the US and Canada and the MTV app in the US for Xbox One.
