The maker is in fact previewing its SmartGlass app for the Xbox One and has reportedly let users organize gaming events too. This latest version of the SmartGlass app will also allows its customers in downloading games, when they are away from the console.
Though the current version of the SmartGlass app packs similar functions as the Xbox 360 version of SmartGlass, it is four times better that what the Xbox 360 offers.
With the latest version of SmartGlass, gamers can have the advantage of multiplayer matchmaking from their mobile devices.
Another important feature in the latest SmartGlass app is that it offers more speed and performance rate. Reportedly, it takes just four seconds to recognize the Xbox One and create an instant connection.

With SmartGlass for Xbox One, you can use it turn your mobilephone, laptop or tablet device into a remote to easily navigate the web on your console.
