Microsoft unveils XBOX SmartGlass app for Windows
At the E3 exposition, Microsoft released the XBOX SmartGlass app that will be compatible with Windows Phone, Windows 8, and other platforms. The app basically helps in the synchronization of multiple devices such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, television sets, etc. With the help of Microsoft’s XBOX SmartGlass app, users can interact with new content along with games and video on their consoles.
The app provides the facility of a multiple screen through a device enabled with XBOX SmartGlass. From that device, users can control their XBOX 360 console. Microsoft demonstrated Game of Thrones as an example. The XBOX SmartGlass app displayed an interactive map of Westeros where the location of the characters was marked.
SmartGlass will take gaming to the next level as it provides a great media experience. Moreover, Microsoft is partnering with developers for XBOX LIVE programming. The launch of SmartGlass could help in boosting the sales of Windows Phones and also Windows 8 tablets that will be introduced later in 2012.
