    But when will it come to Xbox?

      Xbox has a web browser, no real need for a dedicated app.

        And yet there are apps for Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, and other services that are accessible via the web. Clearly there are benefits to having a dedicated app or else consumers wouldn’t ask for them and companies wouldn’t provide them.
