Yesterday, at long last, Microsoft released an application it promised to Windows Phone users months ago: Xbox Video.

Xbox Video functionality was present in Windows Phone 7, as a standard feature. But said feature disappeared in Windows Phone 8. Now, aside from the Music + Video Hub, Xbox Video and Xbox Music exist as standalone applications, available only for Windows Phone 8.

The application itself is pretty straightforward with a fairly basic set of features. It also has a handful of limitations or … missing features, straight out of the gate. One, it doesn’t save your place in video playback across multiple devices. And it doesn’t support HD playback from downloaded titles or streaming.

Be sure to check out the walkthrough of Xbox Video for Windows Phone 8 below!
