Talking You get XB1 achievements for using fucking YOUTUBE!?

What the fuck!? LOL! Does the XBOX ONE give you achievements for EVERYTHING you do? I literally got two achievements for using Youtube on my console. One for liking a video, and another for subscribing to a new channel.

Is the same shit going to happen when I use Netflix and Hulu? I've been out of gaming for a while so this is all sort of of hilarious to me.

Yeah, I seem to recall getting a couple achievements for using Netflix. I think one of them was for rating X number of movies. I also believe the achievements don't award you any actual gamer points.

...there are achievements for Twitch and watching somethings for a while as well. It stops after a while and you'Lloyd just be earning regular game achievements.

I just got a 'secret' 5G achievement for watching 5 hours of gaming content on Youtube on my XBOX ONE.

There are 10 achievements for YouTube and none of them give you any points. Only games can add points.

What was the 5 in the notification for? I don't know much about achievement points.

I can't think what they look like now, but I know Microsoft recently added the % of people that have unlocked an achievement you got. Maybe it was 5% of Xbox users unlocked the achievement you got. I'm just guessing though.

I fired up the YouTube app the other day and purposely liked a video (since I never did it before) and of course it triggered an achievement. There was no indication of any sort of points on the pop-up. It just gave me the achievement name, and that was it.
