No Acheivements on New Apps

Xbox One

Found 13 posts - Go to Last Post


Hey,

I know it's just a small thing but I've noticed there are no achievements with new apps on the xbone ? Does anyone know if this has stopped and achievements are now focused on games ?
I believe app achievements were always optional, but I could be wrong. Do you have any examples?

The achievements for YouTube and Netflix sound pointless, but fun nonetheless. I hope what you're talking about isn't necessarily true and there are only a few apps that have made themselves the ones I couldn't care less about.

He just saying that the existing achievements are still there and obtainable (for now at least) so if you do get then One you can still get a good amount of app achievements. Although I do have to point out that app achievements are all 0 points, so I never really put too much stock into them, they are more like a novelty that has worn off and now if I'm bored I may try for one, otherwise they just unlock whenever.

If you are basing your decision to get an Xbone on whether or not any new apps will have 0 gamerscore achievements, your priorities are strange to me. Most tracking sites don't consider apps in completion totals anyway, so I find your reasoning bizarre.

I replied to you. I mentioned the apps you mentioned. I implied nothing, but actually made a clear statement.

So, I guess "targeting you" with my quoted reply to you...

@Evil Snags

What apps are you talking about?

I see, all recent additions and having achievements.
Bravo Now
Telemundo
PopcornFlix
The Movie Network Go

I would say probably only certain Apps don't have achievements.

And also NBA Gametime.

I will check out those apps you mentioned. Cheers
I think app achievements and challenges are annoying. do I go for them? yes. am I annoyed? yes.
