An official Emby app has been approved and should be launching on the Xbox One console soon. The app is a media streaming tool that can convert a variety of different media formats and send them to other devices to play and can even be used to stream live TV, view personal media while away from home, sync media to devices for offline play, and for backing up content to the cloud.

- Emby automatically converts your media on-the-fly to play on any device.
- Emby organizes your media into an elegant display with artwork, rich metadata and related content.
- Easily share your media with friends and family.
