With the global launch of the Xbox ONE now only two days away, Microsoft are in full swing letting the lucky gamers picking up their Xbox One console on November 22nd, as ready as they can be by releasing the Smartglass app for Xbox One early and putting the Official Xbox ONE Support resources live.
Xbox Wire gives the full low down on what can be done with new Smartglass for Xbox One, with users having more interactive control then ever before with their Xbox One. Even before the Xbox ONE is sitting proudly in your home you can start using Smartglass to do the following:
- Search for the perfect game. Don’t waste any time – search for new Xbox One games so you can jump right in when your console is ready. Xbox One SmartGlass also lets you view information such as game details, achievements and challenges so you’re ready to get going with your favorite games. You can even check out the Game DVR clips already uploaded by the community!
- Keep up with friends. Connect with friends and the Xbox Live community even before you finish setting up your console. Use the app to see what your friends have been up to, check out their latest achievements, or read your messages while you’re waiting.
- Personalize your dashboard. Pin your favorite games and apps to the Home screen so you jump into your favorite activities right when you finish setting up your console and log into Xbox Live
Once your Xbox ONE is up and running in your home, Smartglass will really start to show its benefits with the Second Screen experiences you can have.
