Xbox Smartglass brings purchasing games to your smartphone

If you own a next gen games console and a smartphone, you’ll have undoubtedly downloaded Xbox Smartglass or PS4’s official app, as the apps give you access to your console and allow you to watch other gamers stream to Twitch and numerous other functions.

The PS4 has had the ability to download games while you’re away from your phone for a number of months, but now its coming to the Xbox too.

Yesterday a BETA version of Xbox Smartglass was released to Windows phones, giving Xbox users the ability to do this and an array of other features such as:

  • Like a Game Clip
  • Like an item in the activity feed
  • View items that have been bundled together
  • View items that have been shared to you from a message
  • Purchase Xbox One games & add-ons
  • Browse for recent and popular games & add-ons
