Home » Windows Maps to become available for Xbox

Last weekend, we got the chance to enjoy the Xbox Summer Update, which was a very welcome addition for gamers worldwide. Furthermore, Microsoft is now offering support for the UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps on the Xbox. This enables developers to push out UWP apps onto the Xbox Store in the near future. At the same time, they will be able to enjoy some of the most recent features that have been added, such as background music, Cortana and others.

Furthermore, Microsoft recently released the Groove UWP app especially for Xbox. This is great especially since it includes all the features previously available on the operating system. Now, according to the most recent news in this area, Microsoft plans to launch the Maps app for Xbox too. If you access the “Ready to install” section, you can see the Maps app there. However, this change hasn’t reach everyone yet.

If you install the app, you will see a “Coming Soon” message on your screen. This means the app is still “under construction”. Many of you might be familiar with this message since it was also visible at the beginning of this week as Groove Music received its final touches, but it was available for some of the users.

Windows Maps will probably look just like the PC version of Windows Maps. The best thing about it is its 3D locations, making it will be easier to have a look around. It remains to be seen how Microsoft will manage to adapt all the features available for Maps on PC on the console too. With all the recent updates for UWP, we should expect to see other apps such as Skype, Twitter or Office coming to Xbox as well.
