Microsoft’s Xbox SmartGlass Updated, Includes 7″ Tablet Support

Moments ago, Microsoft pushed an update out to the Xbox SmartGlass app that allows for use on 7″ tablets now, namely the Nexus 7. As far as other features, there are none to mention. There were some bugs fixed, which is never a bad thing. If you’re an avid Xbox user and aren’t checking out SmartGlass, you’re doing it wrong.

Go check it out!

    so are they going to release a 10″ support?

  • yet still doesnt feature all the smartglass capabilities

  • Ross Parker

    My XBOX360 started collecting dust when they forced those terrible avatars on us.

    • hyperbolee

      You use avatars WHEN? I’m not sure i even know what mine looks like

      • Mr Furious

        They suck. That is all.

      • Ross Parker

        Since I don’t use it anymore I guess…. never?

  • I literally just got my black friday xbox in the mail tonight… this timing is perfect

  • Ryan Ellingson

    Anyone else can’t get it to connect on wifi? Data works great and once I connect I can switch to wifi and it works.

  • Can someone pull the APK for the update so I can sideload it onto my Nexus 10?

  • Except it still doesn’t support the Droid Razr!

    Microsoft not only innovated this year, it surprised us.


  • too bad it looks like the phone UI no added functions like on windows 8 yet… Forza horizon GPS is pretty neat to use on my computer

    • works on the iphone. I cant stand this buisness of giving android the finger.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Xbox SmartGlass works flawlessly on my N7, just like it does on my G-Nex. Not too shabby, not too shabby.

    Now all we need is an official Raptr app for Android and we’ll be set.

      And the ability to play the games on out tablets and phones.

  • Zach

    Still no DNA 🙁

    • EvanTheGamer

      Still too early for that phone…maybe in a month or two.

    • I just side load it… that and COD: elite work fine… just need the APK or if rooted restore a backup from another phone

  • Just got it, hope it supports nexus 10 once i get it!

    • It doesn’t support the nexus 10 yet. You have to sideload the apk, and to get it to work in landscape you have to use a hack or workaround. It doesn’t respect device orientation, and stays in portrait.

      • I’m not getting my nexus 10 for a few weeks as its on backorder. So i was saying hope there is a update by then.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Wait, what? I’ve been using Xbox SmartGlass on my Nexus 7 ever since it was released.


    • If I got trolled by Microsoft and they neglected to update their changelog I will be furious….

      • EvanTheGamer

        Hate to say it, but I think that is the case. lol As soon as you guys made a note of Xbox SmartGlass hitting the Android Market a few weeks ago(or month?) I immediately installed it on my G-Nex. Then I went to see if it was available on my N7 and it was. Very strange. They probably just never updated their changelog. Them fools!

        Or maybe it’s possible that they didn’t even know that their own app was compatible with tablets(like the N7). lol…

        • Anthony_Armando

          Fluke. I have had it on my GNex since it was released and checked for it periodically on my N7 and it was never compatible; the last time i tried was three days ago.

          • aye_winchell

            i have had it on my n7 since the day it was posted on DL, everything seemed to work fine and had no issues, if it was a fluke then it was for me as well, that make two flukes.

          • EvanTheGamer

            Whatever the case may be, it was still on my N7 for weeks. So either Microsoft screwed up or someone did.

        • Gr8Ray

          Are all you guys who say it was compatible with your N7 running the stock/unrooted OTA rom though? Because it wouldn’t let me install it on my N7 the last time I tried.

          • EvanTheGamer

            Oh…nope, I installed Xbox SmartGlass on my rooted/stock N7. Worked great. But like others have said, it was probably just a fluke. But who really knows anyways.

      • No, I just tried it yesterday, and it did not work for me either.

        Do you play cod black ops 2 on xbox
