As Microsoft promised before, Xbox SmartGlass app is now available for download from Windows Phone Store. The previous Xbox Companion app for Windows Phone got replaced/updated by this new SmartGlass app.
Â Xbox SmartGlass lets your Windows Phone work with your Xbox 360 console to bring rich, interactive experiences and unique content about what you’re watching or playing, right to the device that’s already in your hand. Interact with your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, and games, and bring remote control to a whole new level.
Xbox SmartGlass lets you:
o Navigate your Xbox 360 with swipe and tap
o Use your phone’s keyboard to type to your Xbox 360
o Browse the Internet on your Xbox 360 with full keyboard and zooming
o Play, pause, fast forward, rewind, and stop videos and music on your Xbox 360
o Search the full Xbox catalog of music, video, and games
o Enjoy rich, interactive experiences from select game and entertainment content creators
This app requires an Xbox 360 console, and an Xbox membership.
Download it here from the Windows Phone Store for free.
Thanks David for the heads up.
