Microsoft Studios has launched a free app for Windows Phone 7 called XBOX Companion App on 6 December. This app allows the XBOX users to have remote control over the XBOX console from their Windows Phone 7.
This unique app has loads of useful features that enable XBOX users to access various services of the console from their Windows Phone 7. “The free XBOX Companion app for Windows Phone will let you find, learn more about and control content from popular entertainment services on XBOX LIVE," said Larry Harb, director of Programming for XBOX LIVE.
An attractive feature about this app is the XBOX Companion Search that is powered by Bing. XBOX users can search and cull out information about any game, movie, TV show, or music from their Windows Phone 7. It displays detailed and unified page results of across all content providers, and it can also launch the desired search content through the console.
The app allows XBOX users to navigate their XBOX console with ease. The app helps in controlling a video or music file on the console as it can play, pause, forward, and rewind the selected content. The app also keeps the users updated about their friends’ online activities such as their latest game scores. Users can also browse the Zune Video Catalogue available in this app and view the recently played games and apps on the console.
