Xbox One SmartGlass

Be ready for the next generation of Xbox

Three days ahead of the retail launch of the latest Xbox, Microsoft has released a new version of its companion Xbox SmartGlass app. Just as before, the Xbox One SmartGlass app provides a second screen experience on your phone or tablet for the Xbox One in your house, giving you access to useful information on the content you're watching, your friends list, game achievements and much more.

You can also use the app to navigate the console's interface with the touchscreen, and enter text with the on-screen keyboard, which can often be drastically faster than using a standard game controller. You can grab a download of the Xbox One SmartGlass app at the Play Store link above, and stare at it solemnly as you wait for your Xbox One to arrive on Friday.
