Hey look at that, a Reddit app is now available on the Xbox One. Bear in mind, however, this is only for the folks who are part of the Preview Program, so don’t get your hopes up just yet, friends. Now, the app in question is Baconit, a popular Reddit app available on both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
Baconit is one of the first Windows Store apps to make it to the Xbox One, and that is because it’s based on the Universal Windows Platform. This is a clear sign that Microsoft means business, and fans should brace themselves for a host of Windows Store apps in the coming weeks and months.
Now, as stated above, you’ll need to be a part of the preview program, and running build 1608 of the Xbox One version of Windows 10. Once these requirements are met, it should then be easy to find Baconit via the Xbox Store, no problem.
We were not able to use the apps ourselves, but one user claims that for the most part, Baconit in its current state is quite stable, so great stuff right there. Some users might find this disappointing, but bear in mind that this is an app in preview, and as such, there will be countless issues, some of which that have yet to be documented.
If you’re not into reading Reddit via your Xbox One, but would rather do so via your Windows 10 Mobile device or PC, then grab Baconit right here from the Windows Store. It’s free, and a great Reddit app that we urge anyone looking for a Reddit experience to download.
If you’re out hoping Reddit will develop an official app, you might have to wait a while because the company denies doing so.
