Just ahead of Build, Microsoft has previewed a new update to SmartGlass which pulls in all of the OneGuide functions to your mobile. That means you’ll be able to flip through what’s on TV, change the station, and use your device as a TV remote (including powering your set on and off). These features are only rolling out to select Live members in Canada, the U.S., and Europe for the time being.

At the same time, Microsoft announced that if you buy or rent movies through them, you’ll be able to pick up exactly where you left off on any of your screens: from your TV on Xbox One, PC with Windows, or streaming from the browser.

Pretty cool stuff overall, eh? Anyone get an invite to try out these features yet? Get downloading over here.
