Microsoft has confirmed the entertainment apps available on Xbox Series X and S at launch.

Apps already available on Xbox One will be available on Xbox Series X and S, Microsoft said. These include the likes of Netflix, Disney+, YouTube, Spotify, Sky Go, Now TV and Amazon Prime Video.

But also out on 10th November is the Apple TV app. That’s for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

Here’s the US-focused list Microsoft provided in its announcement today (there will be more apps than on this list at launch, Microsoft stressed):

  • Netflix
  • Disney+
  • HBO Max
  • Spotify
  • YouTube
  • YouTube TV
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • Hulu
  • NBC Peacock
  • Vudu
  • FandangoNow
  • Twitch
  • Sky Go

  • Sky Ticket

Meanwhile, Microsoft confirmed the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos tech is supported on Netflix, Disney+, and Vudu.

The Microsoft Store is twice as fast as before, Microsoft said in a blog post. The launch time of the Microsoft Store app is now about two seconds. You access apps in the refreshed Xbox dashboard experience in My Games & Apps.

There’s a new Entertainment block for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, too, which showcases content across apps. For new Xbox owners, the Entertainment block is automatically pinned to Home. Existing gamers can scroll down to Add more > See all suggestions, select Entertainment, and add it to Home.
