Microsoft has brought its Windows 10 OneDrive app to the Xbox platform for Xbox One users. This means that Xbox users can now access their OneDrive files on their console – not just limited to photos and videos like the previous app.

The app is pretty much the same as the Windows 10  Mobile and Windows 10 PC iterations with some small allowances for the Xbox interface.

If you are the type who only used OneDrive for photos and couldn’t care less about opening word documents and pdfs on your game console, Microsoft recommends the Microsoft Photos app which is optimized for media viewing and integrates with the OneDrive backend.

Like all Xbox apps, you can’t download it directly, it’ll either be in the store or in your “ready to install” section your apps and games if you’ve ever installed the OneDrive app for PCs before.

Here’s the changelog below:

  •  You can now access all your OneDrive files on Xbox, not just your photos and videos. Check out the new OneDrive on Xbox to view and change your files.
  •  Do you want to view only your photos and videos? The Photos app on Xbox is the best way to see all of your OneDrive photos and videos on the big screen.
  •  Enjoy the improvements to camera upload
  •  Bug fixes
