“What is the Xbox Smart Glass and what do you use it for?”
Microsoft’s “SmartGlass” is a free application that turns your phone/tablet into remote and trackpad for your Xbox 360. The app seamlessly ties in a few key Microsoft components: Windows 8 tablets, Windows mobile phones, Xbox gaming console and other devices (iPhone, iPad, Android) for the ultimate couch potato experience.
So what exactly can you do with this fancy “smartglass” thingy? I’m glad you asked. You can use the SmartGlass app to stream media to your big screen TV using the phone/tablet like a trackpad. It can also be a great companion for Xbox videogames turning a glass device into a gaming controller (Wii U anyone?) giving the player additional information.
SmartGlass is expected to be released later this fall for Windows 8 operating system and the Xbox 360.
