Beta version of the Xbox One SmartGlass app now available for Android

SmartGlass

The SmartGlass application for the Xbox One acts as a second screen for the console. Microsoft has now launched a Beta version of this app in the Google Play Store to receive feedback on its existing features and tips on how to improve them.

The app basically lets users control the content that you’re watching on the console and doesn’t exactly allow for mirroring of games. There’s a lot more functionality still to come, so make sure you download the app to stay in the loop for any new changes Microsoft brings to this app.

We have noticed Microsoft’s stance against rival mobile platforms going down a notch since the past few months. The company only recently made the Office application available for free. Although Windows Phone is seeing a steady increase in marketshare, it’s nowhere close to where iOS or Android is today. So it is imperative that Microsoft spreads its reach towards rival platforms in order to remain competitive.

The SmartGlass app will have some bugs and glitches as it is a beta app, so make sure you let the developers know should you encounter any trouble.
