Snap apps, view DVR clips and more with SmartGlass.
During an “Ask Microsoft Anything” session with IGN, chief Xbox One platform architect Marc Whitten revealed that the manufacturer would be offering 300 1080p gamerpics for when the Xbox One launches. These pics will basically function behind your main profile, showing off your gamerscore, the duration of your time on Xbox Live, your reputation (another new feature introduced for when the Xbox One hits) and much more.
Whitten also talked about how the companion app SmartGlass will work with profiles. “Xbox SmartGlass is the optimal multitasking companion for Xbox One. You can easily access the Xbox One Guide to see what’s on TV and change channels, keep up with what your friends are doing on Xbox, view GameDVR clips, view achievements and challenges, and snap apps on your Xbox One directly from your phone or tablet.”
Sounds interesting enough? We’ll find out ourselves when the Xbox One launches across 13 territories on November 22nd.
