New Xbox One Update Focuses On TV Tools


Microsoft is bringing some updates this month across Xbox Video and Xbox SmartGlass, as the company it trying to bring TV elements to more markets and a new option for using OneGuide on multiple devices.

Microsoft is bringing some updates this month across Xbox Video and Xbox SmartGlass, as the company it trying to bring TV elements to more markets and a new option for using OneGuide on multiple devices.

Starting this week, you can rent (or buy) a movie on Xbox Video, begin watching on one screen, then pick-up right where you left off on another. Xbox Video makes it easier to watch whatever you like on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, or even online at XboxVideo.com.

In addition to watching content, Microsoft has added a range of new SmartGlass features to offer users easier navigation across Xbox One. With SmartGlass you can now:

  • Navigate game options so you can quickly get to the full list of Achievements, challenges, and game clips without jumping through multiple screens.
  • View recent players to find people you recently gamed with, easily add them as a friend, or issue a rematch challenge.
  • Sort the Friends list by online status for a quick view of what your friends are doing.
  • View your Activity Feed in a way that matches the view on your console
  • Launch an app in Snap from your mobile device, and when you?re done, simply unsnap it.
  • Receive Xbox Live messaging alerts on your mobile device.

So in addition what you can do today, Microsoft is making a range of new features available to select Xbox Live members by invite only in the U.S., Europe, and Canada. The features bring elements of OneGuide to new markets, and they add OneGuide and universal remote control to Xbox SmartGlass.



Those select Xbox Live members will see:

  • An enhanced TV watching experience (already available in the U.S.), which sees TV listings added to OneGuide, alongside Favorites and App Channels. This will work for people in Europe and Canada who have their TV connected to Xbox One via HDMI-in.
  • More control over Xbox One, their TV, and set-top box, including setting new recordings and watching recorded content from their DVR, all from a tablet or smart phone. Xbox SmartGlass also adds a new feature to show the most recently-watched channels.
  • New Kinect voice commands in Europe and Canada (already available in the U.S.) which let you control your set-top box and other AV equipment.
These features will be officially launched for everyone later this year.
