Xbox One SmartGlass beta updated with game purchase feature and more


I use the app every now and then but only because of the limited functionality. With the ability to purchase games and add-ons, I'll definitely use it more often (probably while I'm at work or while watching TV in another room) so that I'll have the downloads available when I get back to my console. Looking forward to this being available on the final release. I don't use the Beta.

I primarily use the app to type and text people in my Friends list. But to be able to pay for games and such? Morning win!
