Xbox 360 Smartglass app for Android Released

Some great news today for Android owners! Though it was not expected until early next year, Microsoft have rolled out the Android version of their Xbox 360 second-screen SmartGlass application.

Launched on Friday for Windows users, it lets Xbox 360 owners use their Android device to control new dashboard features such as Internet Explorer, as well as acting as a remote, a keyboard and offering second-screen enhancements to select games such as Forza Horizon.

In a surprising move, the early Android launch for the service puts Google’s OS one step ahead of even Microsoft’s own Windows Phone 8 operating system, that won’t launch until early next month.

Those with an android device can access the app HERE

About / Bio
I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
