Xbox SmartGlass app update brings support for 7" tablets and fixes some bugs

If you happen to have a 7-inch Android tablet and have been using the Xbox SmartGlass app, you should fire up Google Play and grab this latest update. And yes, proper support has arrived.
November 30, 2012

Microsoft launched the Xbox SmartGlass app back in late-October and while the app brought quite a bit in terms of feature and function, there was at least one thing lacking. Well, probably more than one, but in this case, one of those lacking items has since been fixed. This latest update, which is currently available in Google Play has brought support for 7-inch tablets.

Otherwise, aside from the app no longer being limited to smartphones, there were a few smaller items worth mentioning. The other changes included some fixes for crashes and bugs. More specifically, the what’s new section lists the following;

  • Fixes a crash when you access the settings
  • Fixes a crash when you go back to the achievement screen
  • Fixes other minor bugs

This update brings the Xbox SmartGlass app up to version 1.0 where is remains available for those running Android 4.0 or later. The app is free to download, however you will need both an Xbox and Xbox membership to get any use.

All said and done, a relatively minor update for the Xbox SmartGlass app. Of course, it may be minor as a whole, but we suspect those rocking a tablet will be happy. Not to mention, somehow this app somehow seems more appropriate for use on a tablet as opposed to a smartphone.
