Xbox SmartGlass for Android debuts early, get it now
We reported very recently that Xbox SmartGlass for Android would be out in early 2013. Well, it appears that this is not the case – not the case as at all.
This is the app that allows you to control your Xbox from your smartphone, giving you a second screen in the room. If you’re connected to the same WiFi network, which you’d expect anyway, then you can go ahead and never need to use your remote again – unless of course, you’re playing a game.
Before you can sign in, you must have an Xbox Gold membership and be running Android 4.0 or above, which about one quarter of us are on. Overnight, Microsoft has debuted the app for Android and us users can start grabbing it right now!
Got an Xbox, head over to the Play Store now for download.
Here’s some images of the app:
