Xbox-One-Beta

Microsoft has updated its SmartGlass Beta companion app with support for the new features being added to the Xbox One. New SmartGlass features like streaming live TV to your mobile devices, recording game clips and booting the console directly to television playback when coming out of standby are now available to sample.

In order to take advantage of these new features, you’ll need to be participating in the Xbox One’s dashboard preview program and have Microsoft’s SmartGlass Beta app installed to your compatible smartphone or tablet. Initially the software’s live TV streaming feature will only be available in select European markets where the company is previewing its new digital TV tuner accessory. The rest of the world will have to wait for this second screen viewing option to become available.
