Microsoft’s pushes the Halo Channel app to the Play Store, brings loads of content for Halo fans

Halo Channel (3)

There’s still a few months to go until Halo 5: Guardians launches on October 27th for the Xbox One. Until then, you can immerse yourself in the Master Chief’s universe by downloading and installing Microsoft’s Halo Channel app on your phone and tablet.

The Halo Channel app includes community created content, the back-stories about Halo characters in the Halo Universe as well as original programming that includes Halo fiction and behind-the-scenes documentaries. You can also pick up playing tips, multi-player strategies and even walk-through guides that will help you if you get stuck at any point.

“The Halo Channel is your home to experience award-winning original Halo programming, the best in community-created content, tips to improve your game, and the ability to access to deep background information about the Halo universe and story – all through a custom-designed and personalized digital network.”

Looking at the Play Store reviews, you can see that the video player apparently needs some tweaks with videos either stuttering or freezing on user’s devices. Microsoft will hopefully fix these teething pains relatively soon. Apart from that, the Halo Channel appears good to go.  The app is free to download from the Google Play Store via the QR code and link below.
