The official Xbox One app for the new HBO Max streaming service is now live for console owners to download and use.
As reported yesterday, those with the HBO NOW Xbox One app installed don’t need to do anything as it will automatically change into the HBO Max app after the latest app update is installed. This change appears to have already begun to rollout to users as the HBO NOW app page in the Microsoft Store now shows as a page for the HBO Max app complete with promotional text and fresh images (see above).
Here’s the new app description:
