Microsoft updates Xbox One SmartGlass with game clip recording and more features

August 28, 2014

Just over a week after its last major update (which introduced remote purchasing and other features), Xbox One SmartGlass has received yet another significant update.

The latest update to the official iOS companion app of Microsoft’s flagship Xbox One entertainment console delivers a number of new capabilities. Most notably, these include the ability to record game clips right from the app and several social networking enhancements.

According to its release notes, the new version of Xbox One SmartGlass lets you:

  • Share and post activity feed items
  • Post status updates to your activity feed
  • See your activity feed on your profile
  • Display messages in a new conversations view
  • Record game clips

The updated app also includes support for in-app display of release and feature notes and expansion to new markets along with TV and OneGuide.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Xbox One SmartGlass is available on the App Store for free.

Note that the app’s new version still doesn’t include the ability to stream TV programs from Xbox One, since this feature requires the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner, which is scheduled to be released in October.
