The team at RedWater Technologies has launched MailOnX, a dedicated email client optimized for Xbox One. While the app is designed using the Windows 10 APIs, it is currently available only on the console, and it is quite pricey.
The feature set as described by RedWater Technologies is as follows:
- Receive mails from multiple e-mail accounts and providers.
- Compose new mails or send replies.
- Configured for and works with All Microsoft Mail providers (including Outlook, Office365), Yahoo, Gmail, Zoho, iCloud, Blueyonder & BTConnect, 1&1, AT&T, AOL.
- Email signature setup.
- Offline Email reading.
- Watch Items - Filters mail by specific email address or email address domain.
- Personalization - Celebrate your favorite games by using pre-installed game images for your background image.
- Family mode - Lock email accounts, so other users on the console won't be able to view or reply your mails.
- Full support for Xbox Gamepad and ChatPad.
MailOnX doesn't yet support notifications unlike other Xbox apps with messaging features such as Readit, and there is currently no way to view sent messages either. The UX looks superficially similar to the stock Mail app for Windows 10, complete with custom backgrounds and a two-panel interface.
MailOnX is a rather expensive $9.99 / £7.69 and considering that it isn't even available across PC and Windows 10 Mobile, it seems a little costly unless you're desperate to see email on your console. Microsoft is likely to bring the official Mail app to Xbox One in the future too, which will almost definitely be free.
Either way, it's interesting to see how the functionality of the Xbox One can be extended thanks to the Universal Windows Platform. What apps do you want to see on your Xbox One? Let us know in the comments.
Note: To get this app on your Xbox One, navigate to the store on your console, then search for "MailOnX."
