Xbox One SmartGlass App now Available to Download
The Xbox One SmartGlass app is now available to download for free on iOS, Android and Windows Phone ahead of the launch of Xbox One this friday. The SmartGlass app will allow users to navigate content on their Xbox One via smartphone or tablet by using the touchscreen. You are able to message friends, view video content and take advantage of the SmartGlass Companions amongst other features, all while being away from your console.
One SmartGlass Companion which will be available at launch is the Dead Rising 3 mobile, which will reskin your smartphone to match that of the in-game phone, were you will be able to receive missions and calls from in-game characters. It will be interesting to see how much use a feature like this actually has, but it will be pretty useless if you aren’t playing your Xbox One however.
The SmartGlass app for Xbox One is different to the 360 one, meaning you will need to have both installed if you wish to use SmartGlass with your Xbox One and Xbox 360.
