Microsoft details the 45 new apps coming to Xbox One, including TV networks, Twitter and more

When Microsoft first debuted the Xbox One, there was a strong focus on media-consumption. From movies, to television to social-media the console was aimed at being the hub for your entertainment needs. The used-game debacle and other hiccups along the way sidetracked the attention that the console was getting, but Microsoft seems back on track, and ready to get the ball rolling with third-party developers.
 
We are just a few days away from E3 2014, and Microsoft announced over 40 new apps that are coming to the Xbox One console. “Xbox fans are spending more time than ever on the console, spending more than five hours a day on Xbox One,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Devices and Studios at Microsoft. “Today as we announce new commitments from dozens of our partners, including deep integration with experiences like Twitter and Vine, we hit an important milestone in our journey to deliver unique experiences on Xbox. We’re thrilled to break new ground in social TV experiences like we’re doing with Twitter on Xbox One.”
 

 
“People turn to Twitter every day to enjoy and engage in the real-time conversations about their favorite TV shows,” says Jana Messerschmidt, VP Business Development and Platform at Twitter. “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.”
