Suggest ways to make SmartGlass even better.

Stream game audio and video to SmartGlass app

XB1 needs the ability to stream games to SmartGlass. The Controller would still go through XB1. This feature would only be available up to the max range of the XB controller. The idea here would be to have the option to play games and not take up the primary TV.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas posted by xUronlyfriendx, mik29, SPACEGHO5T, and rocky619619. Thanks everyone!]

    This feature is a game changer and definitely one of the best features to ever come. Playstation can stream to Vita but that's a small screen. Imagine Xbox streaming to any device with smart glass..

    I also want to point out that the TV Tuner add-on is not needed for this feature since the Xbox can simply use WiFi(particularly Direct) to stream.

    I think the Playstation is the king of streaming games, but if Microsoft offer the service for the Xbox One, this will be the best platform in the world, I hope to see the Microsoft remote play to android and tablets, MS do it please

    Give me something that can plug into my other tv and let me play my games through it. That is the only thing the PS4 had that makes it look good to me.

    Yes, a 'Snap to Me' button on the Now Playing tile in the Smartglass app would indeed be amazing.
    There you go Microsoft you can have that one..

  • mik29mik29 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Come on MS give us some info on whether your going to do something about this. Please

  • auDaemorothauDaemoroth commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In addition, Playstation TV bringing the ability to stream to a different TV (We happen to have 2) is making it more and more difficult to stick with the XB1.

    This is something MS kinda has to address if only for the sake of keeping up with your main (leading) competitor.

    Please!! Living with (And about to marry) an absolute non-gamer (Who does like my habits though) sharing the TV is a real problem. To the point that I'm thinking of focusing on PS4 games this coming holiday season and hinting for a Vita for Christmas.

    If we could just stream games to the Xbox One Smartglass app (Over the same network connection), that could cover a lot of devices including the PC.

    Please make this happen!

    Remote play, yes please! As many have said, it's a competition point with Sony, as well as a selling point for Win8/Android devices - really anything though with SmartGlass. We can't cary our systems with us to work, but being able to play over lunch break or what have you would be phenomenal!

  • Tam MagooTam Magoo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yep, superb, it would instantly improve on the Vita feature due to availability of extra screens.

    When playing a split screen shooter it can disadvantage you when your opponent can see your screen, so imagine 2 people sitting in their own corner with their own Smartglass screens in front of them. Cool!

    Great idea! I was just thinking the same thing. Almost got a PS4 for this particular feature since I already have a vita. I already have plenty of screens that I wish I could just stream the video from games to. That way I could play destiny using the controller and tablet while my girlfriend watches food network.

    I really do love my Xbox 1 and am looking forward to exclusive titles like Sunset Overdrive, Halo MC and Forza Horizon 2, but I am seriously considering trading in my console for a PS4 so that I can play remotely on an Xperia Z3 device. My wife and kids never want to watch me play games and since they out number me I always have to switch off. Remote play looks like a great alternative and now that Sony is releasing a companion accessory so that you can use the D4 with the Xperia device I am almost sold. Microsoft you have to create a remote play option as am sure there are a lot of fans who want the feature but rather stay with mircrosoft/xbox.
