Introducing Xbox SmartGlass

Entertainment is more amazing with Xbox SmartGlass

Xbox SmartGlass turns your mobile phone or tablet into a second screen that intelligently interacts with your Xbox 360 to elevate your entertainment experience. Xbox SmartGlass allows for your devices and TV to talk to each other to enhance your favorite music and games.*

Control at your fingertips

Use your phone, tablet, or Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets and PCs to control your living room Xbox experience. Navigate the Xbox dashboard, pause and rewind your favorite movie, swipe, pinch, and tap to surf the Web on your TV, and use your device's keyboard for easy text input and search on your console.

Discover more. Easier.

Intelligently connected devices allow you to watch one experience on your TV, while simultaneously controlling what you’re watching. Get relevant immersive details about a game. Even browse the entire Xbox catalog – all from your phone or tablet. Your Xbox devices talk to each other to make things easier for you.

Don't just watch your TV. Interact with it.

Your phone or tablet transforms into the ideal second screen companion to your TV as it automatically serves up extended experiences of your favorite music and games. Interactive companion guides and real-time game strategy are just a taste of what you can unlock with Xbox SmartGlass.
