Xbox One Smartglass Beta Update


Microsoft released an update to their Xbox One SmartGlass Beta app.  While SmartGlass for the Xbox One is available, there is a separate app known as Beta which is open to the public and is constantly switching between new features.  Microsoft seems to be using it as a field test to get a litmus reading of the public’s wants and likes.  The new update includes:

  • The ability to like a game clip
  • The ability to like an item in the activity feed
  • Improved feedback tools that no longer use e-mail
  • General stability and polish improvements
  • Bug fixes

The update is available on both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices. This follows on the heels of an earlier update that improved the app’s integration with the OneGuide. Microsoft adds in the app details, “Use the feedback button in the app to let us know what you think” in an effort to make it easier to reach the community and determine their wants and needs.  You can see the app and some user feedback here.
