Remote app isn't complete When I use a remote app i expect it to be able to turn on the device I'm using it for. Smartglass does not do this. You would have to physically turn on the xbox anyway if not have to touch your controller .. defeating the purpose of having this app. For people still using batteries for their controllers this would be a nice tweak. Oh and the remote screen that says "press anywhere for A" ~it means press the tiny A perfectly or nothing will happen. At least on my Galaxy S6.
Doesn't work. Downloaded the app based on the info provided saying I could use my phone to play, pause and select music and films, and also navigate various apps. Instead, when I open the app it does nothing except open up my Xbox account on a Web browser. Won't connect to my Xbox at all. It's just a glorified Web link. Downloaded on Sony Xperia Z5 on android. Not sure if that's relevant. Maybe it's a common issue with Sony phones? Wouldn't surprise me as it's the rival company that make Playstation. Ha!
I used to love this app, but now on my galaxy s5 the remote function doesn't work. I am unable to use this app now because I cannot navigate thru any menus. UPDATE 7/23/15 Now it won't even sign in to my xbox. I have made sure that all criteria is correct. It will sign in but won't connect to my xbox. All my settings are turned on correctly under system and console settings. I wish you all would get your stuff together. Have not been able to use this app for far too long.
It works :) It's a rather convenient tool to have when you are using IE on xbox, and the smartglass functionality with certain films on Xbox video are pretty fun and informative. Watching behind the scenes of a particular film on your phone while the movie is playing is quite fun. Good work MS.
Cold use work Listen I like it but I think I should be able to use this to record videos of the game or xbox I'm playing and save it to my phone. I don't wanna go out and pay a ton of money for a thing that doesn't work when I can use my phone for free and know it works. Please update and add this feature.
Pathetic Keyboard and pointer on phone worked once after downloading app in the last 24 hours, now it doesn't work at all.. Keeps saying slow connection on my Note 4.... Yet I'm getting 31 mbs download and 21 upload, both phone and 360 are on the same Network and yes, 360 is set up to allow app. Does Microsoft only hire noobs in Java? Perhaps you should either consider hiring more experienced programmers, or maybe switch to Swift or Objective C! Paaaaathetic!
