SmartGlass-iOS

Today, Microsoft released a highly anticipated update for its SmartGlass mobile apps for Xbox One. Following suit with a full system update for Redmond’s newest game console, this refreshed companion app adds fast access to all of your TV and app channels with the introduction of OneGuide support. Also new to SmartGlass are the abilities to compare Achievements, filter recorded game clips and organize your console’s pins remotely. But the standout new feature here is the addition of a universal remote that can be used to control your cable, satellite box or TV.

If the Xbox One is an important piece of your home entertainment setup, life is about to get a whole lot easier with this new and improved app. If you haven’t already, head on over to the App Store and try it out.
