The Xbox One SmartGlass Beta is a version of the official remote control app for Microsoft's video game console, which consumers can download to check out upcoming features not yet loaded into the main release. We last looked at the app being updated back in May, but today the team has released another update to bring forward some new features.
The Windows Phone Store has the Xbox One SmartGlass Beta sitting on 126.96.36.199, but the app itself reports 2.2.1406.13002. According to its store listing, this latest version includes the following:
- Ability to like a Game Clip
- Ability to like an item in the activity feed
- Improved Feedback tools that no longer use email
- General stability and polish improvements
- Bug fixes
It's not a massive update, but one we're pleased to see released with more social capabilities. If you own both an Xbox One and Windows Phone, we urge you to download this app and see how you go, sporting a handy remote control.
Thank, Richard, for the heads up!
