    "Not that it's just for Xbox, but Netflix has a pretty great Android app if you want to make your binge-watching more mobile than just your home TV and your gaming console. Everything is just as easy to find and play as it is on the Xbox. I've been using it for years and honestly I don't know what I'd do without it!"

    "Spotify is a relatively new entrant in the Xbox One app. segment, and their app. is above-average in functionality, ease of use and with regard to user ratings. Spotify for Xbox One became available in August 2017, and this app permits access to both my gaming playlists and to my own personal Spotify playlists as well. Spotify will even run in the background on Xbox One, allowing game users to play music during games, and to permit audio feedback and volume control directly from the Xbox One guide, or from a separate device. However, app. user ratings do not seem to be "excellent"; so take care to evaluate other Xbox One apps. that also serve your particular purposes. "

    "I used to use Crackle to watch movies for free on my Xbox. I never liked it very much. Things didn't stream well on it and there wasn't much available. I don't know if things have changed since I last used it, though."

    "This statement doesn't even make sense at all, you don't need a standalone app like Pandora to use on Android if you're using music streaming on your Xbox. Also, there are probably Xbox related apps for the Android, but this isn't one."

    "This has nothing to do with the xbox, and doesn't help me at all with what I am looking for in an XBOX app. Would like to see a gaming news app, or maybe a cheat app, but this is just youtube. Youtube is great, I even have it on my Xbox and my phone, but this has nothing to do with the XBOX. "
