With Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps hitting the Xbox One just around the corner, an interesting app has been updated which would allow it to run on the console. VLC, a popular media player app, has already announced its intentions of coming to the Xbox One, and now the Torrex Pro Windows 10/Windows Phone app has been updated in preparation for UWP support.
Torrex Pro also features a built-in media player, which would give Xbox One users another alternative to VLC and the default Xbox media player. As nice as it would be to be able to download content straight to your Xbox One and watch it within the same app, it will be interesting to see what kind of restrictions that Microsoft would have on apps like this. Considering it is already available for Windows 10 and Windows Phone, a UWP version might not be that much of an issue.
Another consideration to keep in mind would include where Torrex Pro would potentially be able to download files to on your console.
