As a software engineer at Xbox, Mark Boo knows a thing or two about how to make the most of the devices we use for entertainment. With so many devices available to us, it can be frustrating when they don’t work together seamlessly. That’s where Xbox SmartGlass comes in.

Xbox SmartGlass is a free app that connects your devices to your Xbox entertainment. It’s available for the devices that you already own, making it an easy addition to your entertainment setup.

One of the most convenient features of Xbox SmartGlass is the ability to seamlessly transition from one device to another. For example, if you’re watching a movie on your Windows tablet but you want to watch it on your TV, simply tap ‘play – Xbox 360’ and SmartGlass will send the movie to your television. It will even remember exactly where you left off, so you can pick up right where you left off without any hassle.

But Xbox SmartGlass does more than just stream movies from one device to another. If you’re listening to music on your Xbox, SmartGlass becomes a visual remote control that recommends other artists you might like based on what you’re currently listening to.

Xbox also brings the web to your TV with Internet Explorer for Xbox. SmartGlass allows you to share your browsing session from your Windows phone with your Xbox, so you can continue browsing on your TV using the same gestures you use on your phone. And if you need to leave in the middle of a browsing session, you can simply tap ‘play’ in SmartGlass and continue browsing on your tablet.

If you’re a sports fan, Xbox SmartGlass has some exciting features for you as well. Imagine watching a game and having real-time stats or the ability to call a big play highlights from earlier in the game right from SmartGlass. This takes watching sports to a whole new level.

Xbox SmartGlass is a game-changer for the way we view entertainment in our living rooms. It seamlessly connects our devices and enhances our entertainment experience. Whether you’re watching a movie, listening to music, browsing the web, or watching sports, Xbox SmartGlass has something for you.
