Microsoft Updates Its Xbox SmartGlass App To Include Support For 7-Inch Tablets, Adds In Bug Fixes For Good Measure


Most of us who happen to use our Xbox devices religiously got our very first taste of a native Xbox app for Android, but sadly— we quickly realized only smartphones were able to get in on the mobile action, not tablets. Fortunately, Microsoft has heard our cries and complaints and released another update to the SmartGlass app, this time adding official support for 7-inch tablets (like the Nexus 7), which ultimately bodes well for those with big hands such as yours truly. In addition to adding official 7-inch tablet support, the update brings some minor bug fixes and specific crashes when accessing the settings and when you go back to the achievement screen. Looks like the SmartGlass app is slowly, but surely getting better and better.

The update is available now in the Play Store, so be sure to grab it by clicking on the Play Store link or scanning the QR code.
