Xbox One and Xbox 360 to receive dozens of new apps

On Wednesday, Microsoft announced in a blog post that more than 45 new Xbox apps are coming to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles later this year. These new entertainment-focused apps include HBO Go, Showtime, and Twitter.

In the said blog, Microsoft expressed their excitement about releasing dozens of new Xbox apps for their console fans around the world. The announcement came just a few days before the company?s Xbox: Game On conference to be held during the upcoming E3 event.

All these new Xbox apps are slated to launch before the holiday season ends. Microsoft highlighted a major addition to the bevy of apps ? Twitter integration. It means that this app will enable users to see Tweets related to the satellite or cable TV show they are watching in real time.

With these 45+ new Xbox apps, Microsoft will be able to bring its total Xbox app catalog to 225 apps globally, an increase of 25 percent. On the other hand, the Microsoft console?s archrival PlayStation, seem to be following the trend as it recently supported the HBO Go app for its PS3, among others.

This announcement is rather unsurprising as the June update of the Xbox consoles discontinued the requirement for Xbox Live Gold subscription to download and retain apps. It is only logical for Microsoft to release a horde of new Xbox apps after giving everyone the ability to access them.

Here is the full list of the apps as it is shown in the Xbox.com blog (11 are for the Xbox 360 and 35 apps are for the Xbox One):
