Xbox One now has a free Reddit app

Posted on August 19, 2014 AT 03:01am

Reddit is finally coming to Xbox One via the brand new ReddX app, Microsoft has announced.

Using the free app, users will be able to upvote or downvote threads, add comments via the Xbox One controller, view YouTube videos and GIFs, and save photos. The app also offers the option of adding a custom image as the home page’s background. There are also several achievements to earn (worth zero Gamerscore) named after various Internet memes.

“Starting tomorrow, you can combine your reddit experience with the biggest screen in your home: thanks to Xbox One, while you game, you can also browse the first-ever reddit app for the TV,” a post on Xbox Wire reads. “ReddX on Xbox One can be Snapped to the side of your TV while you’re gaming or using another app to help you monitor and join in threads on the site while you’re doing anything else.

“Thanks to ReddX, redditors can interact with each other in similar ways to the experience, and in addition unlock unique media achievements named after some of the Internet’s favorite memes.”

You can check out a walkthrough video of the app above. ReddX is only available in the United States and Canada currently.
