  • Reddit Comes to Xbox One via ReddX App

    If you just can't pull yourself away from Reddit for even a second, not even while playing your favorite games, the Xbox One has you covered. Microsoft is starting to roll out ReddX, a new Reddit app for the Xbox One.


    ReddX on Xbox One can be Snapped to the side of your TV while youíre gaming or using another app to help you monitor and join in threads on the site while youíre doing anything else. Thanks to ReddX, redditors can interact with each other in similar ways to the reddit.com experience, and in addition unlock unique media achievements named after some of the Internetís favorite memes. In fact, I just posted the first reddit thread created from a console tonight before we officially launch in the morning Ė check it out here.

    ReddX on Xbox One lets Xbox Live members in the U.S. and Canada check out every subreddit in addition to a customized main page. You can read text and view images, videos and GIFs on your TV and can even zoom in or out of text and images for a closer look.

    Using ReddX also allows you to upvote or downvote a thread with just the touch of a button, as well as easily add your comments using your Xbox One controller, media remote or Xbox SmartGlass on your smartphone, tablet or laptop. If you find an image thatís just too good to pass over, ReddX lets you save a photo to your profile or set any image as the background for your ReddX app.

    The big question here is whether or not this will be more or less popular than the "one and done" novelty that was the Twitter app for the Xbox 360.
