Throughout the Internet, there are sites that get millions and millions of users to visit them, and remain some of the highest trafficked sites on the net. On Monday, Microsoft brought one of the biggest sites, Reddit, to the Xbox One giving users an incredible new way to view the site.
The brand new ReddX app for the Xbox One is a different type of app for the Xbox One. It’s not just a usual news and picture viewing app that some might expect, and brings in the power of the Xbox One and Kinect, which is the first to be developed for a console anywhere.
How ReddX Works
The ReddX app on the Xbox One works perfectly with the Xbox One, and it allows users to do a ton with the Xbox One app. It allows users to submit their own links, up and downvote content from their Xbox One console, and much more. This is the first time Reddit has teamed up with a console and they hit a home run with it.
The ReedX app on the Xbox One shows the topics of the site on the left hand side of the app, and images, GIFS, and videos load on the right side. Users can even fast-forward, skip, and make animated GIFS go forwards and backwards like magic. With the Kinect, users can control it with their voice as well.
Why Reddit On Xbox One?
Many probably are wondering why Reddit and ReddX would appear on the Xbox One, and the move is pretty simple. It brings together the multimedia and console approach of the Xbox One together with one of the most popular sites on the web today. It has tons of videos, pictures, and multimedia experiences to shine on the Xbox One.
The Xbox One needs more than just games, and ReddX allows it to do just that. Major Nelson in the introduction video went over the app in full details, and shows off exactly what the app can do. It’s a great functioning app and free, so its well worth a download on the Xbox One.
I enjoy Reddit and ReddX. It’s a fun app that makes the Xbox One even more fun.
