Khan Academy launches its Xbox One academic app with access to over 5,000 videos

Khan Academy has quietly launched its Xbox One app, which allows owners of Microsoft's game console to access a ton of videos on a wide variety of academic topics.

The Xbox support page for the app says:

"Our Xbox app is the best way to view Khan Academy's complete library of over 5,000 videos. We cover a massive number of topics, including K-12 math, science topics such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and even the humanities with playlists on art history, civics, and finance."

In addition to Khan Academy, US and UK owners of the Xbox One can now download the Popcornflix app, which offers free access to thousands of streaming movies and televisions shown. Finally, UK Xbox One owners can now download the CinemaNow app, which lets users rent or purchase TV shows and movies. The app has been available for the Xbox One in the US for some time.
