Trending: Console vs. cloud: What Microsoft’s new Xbox Series X says about the future of gaming

Microsoft’s Xbox team this morning announced ten new apps for Xbox Live, and listed dozens of others that will be rolling out between now and next spring, available to users on the living room console.

Xbox Live apps launching today include SkyDrive, the cloud storage service from Microsoft’s Windows team. The Xbox Live version of SkyDrive will let users play slideshows on their television screens and view photos and videos from their online accounts. (We’ll have more on this in a follow-up post.)

In addition, a new Karaoke app is launching for Xbox Live with 8,000 songs, and integration with Xbox SmartGlass for controlling playback, reading lyrics and and picking songs. Among other new releases, media companies Maxim and CNet released their new Xbox Live apps.

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson has more details on the apps launching today for the console, along with a list of more than 40 other apps arriving in the coming months.
