Microsoft adds Pandora and More to Xbox One

The Xbox One is no stranger to media apps. From it’s very launch a year ago it had a huge lead in the entertainment space compared to its rival. Today, Microsoft has added four more apps to the lineup, and at least a couple are sure to be big hits.

Today Xbox One owners can now download apps from Pandora, Vevo, Bravo Now, Telemundo Now, and Popcornflix. All of the apps are free of course.

If you’re a music fan you’ll love having access to Pandora. Simply select your favorite, artist, song, or genere and the service will create a custom playlist of music that you’ll enjoy. Vevo has the largest catalog of music videos available. Bravo Now offers full episodes and other clips from shows on the network. Telemundo Now, much like Bravo, also offers full episodes and other video content from the Telemundo network. Popcornflix is for movie fans. The app is free, and so are the movies!

You can install the apps now on your Xbox One, or use a SmartGlass app on your mobile devices to acquire them. Then they’ll be installed and waiting for you when you get home.
