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!]
Please add an App or Option which allows us to mirror the TV Screen onto SmartGlass Device...
for example for Videos or My Games and Apps.
So that I can select tiles without looking at TV..
1.I sit on the throne and establish my business and, at the same time I could browse the TV-Programm, Netflix, my apps or my Games¬ inserted music CD without Need to be in same room like TV..
Also skipping Tracks in Audio CD-Player will be possible...
At Moment it is impossible to do such things because we can only swipe with Smartglass and we Need to see the Monitor.....
This would be Multimedia and Multitasking!!
Also a Option like Snap to SmartGlass would be good
I Need to go to the door because it has ringed, but my Girlfriend hates it, so I can watch further on my SmartGlass as Long I am in same Network and my GF Needs not to pause the Movie.
play games using your smartphone like tv
this may help to have a different view from a game, for example in fifa you can change your formation and team members directly from smart glass
Please add the ability to stream either TV from our cable/satellite boxes or games to devices with smartglass and smart TVs. PS4 has just announced the PS TV box to allow this. Would be excellent to allow someone to watch TV on a tablet or to be able to play a game in another room without having to move the Xbox!
What about using the smart glass app to allow users to play games on their PC, iPhone, iPad, etc by streaming from their xbox? It would be great as if you are away from home or someone wants to watch something else on TV you could move very easily and start where you left off!
The PS4 can remotely offer gameplay through the vita. So a buddy of mine is playing destiny on the road via his vita. Naturally it seems part of the evolution of the smartglass app to offer such a feature. Look into it. Awesome feature and if limited to windows devices initially another good selling point.
Streaming games with smartglass.
It would be easy to implement using SmartGlass streming games. We could use SmartGlass as control by cell phone and the PC screen with twitch tv to watch. All it takes is the buttons and control the SmartGlass become available in games.
Please, make it where you can stream your Xbox One Gaming to your smartglass app. That way we can play anywhere in our house as long as we have a strong connection. There are already attachable cases to connect your phone to your Xbox One controller so let's get this done and change the future of gaming! Thank you and I hope you take this into consideration.
make a portable gaming device that has "remote play" capabilities like the ps4 does. I also think that you should be able to play your console on another tv in your house without having to move the console.
PS4 style remote play would be fantastic as an extension to Smartglass. Using the XB1 controller's USB port and a regular or micro cable, you could connect up to many different devices on various OS. This would make it even better than the PS4 implementation.
I know there are similar posts to this but I'm adding to them. Microsoft should support remote play through their windows devices and release a tv box to support remote play on other TV's. Microsoft platforms should work better together. I should have an option to receive my windows phone messages on my xbox one and windows pcs. I should be able to play my xbox one games on my windows pc, tablet, or phone with my xbox one controller. Kinda like the vita and now Sony's phones and tablets do with the PS4 and how the wii u supports it on their game pad.
would like to be able to use devices with SmartGlass as screen to play the Xbox one
stream the game's video on SmartGlass as you do for TV
Please see the forum topic here: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/general_discussion/general_discussion/f/3817/t/1819737.aspx?pi7406=1#4911732
Essentially, this is Xbox One's potential answer to PS4's current remote play feature which allows users to play their PS4 games anywhere they go with the portable PS Vita by streaming it from their home console to their PS Vita via WiFi connection. Xbox should integrate this same concept to allow SmartGlass to stream games from home consoles to portable devices. The portable device only needs to process a live stream of the game while sending back the player's controller input to the home console. Virtually all portable devices already do similar live streams with Skype and Twitch. Please see the forum topic, linked above.
It would be great if we could use our phones as a monitor, and connect the controller via cable to the phone! We could use our Xbox One everywhere with a good internet connection!!!
(similar ideas exist from other ppl here) (please upvote sthat the xbox feedback team see's this idea :D)
With cloud technology such a stated focus - it's time to take advantage of portable gaming without a whole new portable device. Like Onlive XB1 should be able to utilize smartglass to play select titles via your smartphone or tablet. This opens the possibility for a new attachable gamepad like peripheral as well. The portable gaming specific titles are only desired from nintendo. Vita's line-up is not in the category. Core gamers of consoles want this experience without having to spend money for a portable version. Such a service will continue to separate the Xb1 experience from the PS4 as more favorable. In the next 12-24 months there should be a big push for this, as well as the current implementation of smart-glass (i.e what's being offered for the division). There are price-points starting phone/tablet partnerships, that will be beneficial to both Microsoft and the community. Too many ideas to share in one post. feel free to email me @ associated hotmail account for more details :)
With the upcoming update that allows us to stream TV to our tablet, If possible allow us to launch a Xbox One game with the TV app over the top of it (or within the app itself) to allow us to play our games on the tablet.
Stream games from xbox one to surface / laptop or tablet via xbox smart glass so I can enjoy games while my girlfriend watches tv
Playstation offers this with the PS-Vita, so why not offer this via Smartglass? For those who have controllers made for their phones, it could have support for those. Additionally, there could be an adapter to make an Xbox One controller work (basically an USB to iPhone slot), and touch controls. This would be amazing, I would be able to play my Xbox One games in any room of my house, any maybe even when I'm riding in the car!
By letting us use the Smartglass app, we should be able to play xbox one games via the app from the consoles. This should be for like surface or iPad tablets. Either that or letting us use the xbox Smartglass app as a literal controller if we lose our remote!
It's one of the ideas that you play Xbox One games when the TV is turned off into the device that uses the Smartglass. It can be used as a screen to the Xbox or a playable game with touchscreen controls to make the game playable. It will surely beat Sony and Nintendo in the competition.
I´ve rencently purchase a Wii U and it´s great the off-screen option. My dream would be a Xbox One Controller with off-screen option. This way I could play the Xbox One in bed, balcony or when other person is watching TV.
Other way to do this would be implement Xbox One stream to a tablet or phone...
Basically give Smartglass remote access and then make a device that you can clip your phone on to your controller. This would essentially turn xbox into a handheld console while in your home.
The use case I would like to see would seem to me to be the easiest implement from a remote play standpoint. Now that the Xbox One is the center of my living room media universe, I would like to have the ability to stream game video to any SmartGlass device so that I can play a game while others watch TV. The requirement would be to stay within range of the controller to remain connected to the console so that you could stream the game audio through the controller and attached stereo headset. That way, the SmartGlass app is only streaming remote video which should have a minimal amount of latency/lag, certainly less than if you are remoting video, audio, and controls.
Based on the popular feedback on reddit.
It would be awesome if Xbox users could stream and play Xbox games over a Wifi connection or through something similar to any nearby Windows 8 device such as a Surface RT, laptop or even a PC as they all have USB ports for a controller.
Link to reddit post that caught my attention: http://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/27vkih/if_you_could_would_anyone_stream_their_xbox_one/
Like the Wii U and the PS Vita, allow a game's audio/video that is being played on the xbox one to be streamed to smartglass. Still use the controller, all the processing and such will still be done natively on the console. This way someone could watch tv or do something else with the tv while you continue to play via a tablet or other smartglass device
It would be great if you could stream an Xbox One game to a PC, tablet or smartphone on your WiFi. That way if someone else wants to watch something, another person could still play a game. This would be better than the Wii U since most people already have a PC, tablet or smartphone, and it would be better than Remote Play on the PS4 since you would have more screen options.
1. Stream purchased TV Shows & Movies, Music & Photos over the Internet to Smartglass
Stream Apps from Xbox One to Smartglass.
Stream Game Video & Audio from Xbox One to Smartglass to be able to Play Games in another room when someone else is using the TV, just like what Nintendo are doing.
2. Stream Xbox 360 Games to Xbox One.
Stream PC Games to Xbox One.
Please make it possible to stream games via WiFi to any Smart Glass Device that I can play my Games of the Surface.
Maybe It would also be possible to stream only one half for splitscreen gaming.
I desperately need this. In my house my wife and kids like to use the PC and I have the Xbox One on the same TV screen. When they wanna use the PC, I cant use the Xbox One. If Xbox made something like In-Home streaming like Steam have, this would ROCK!!!
Please can you make this happen MS.
It would be great to use SmartGlass as a way to play any of you're downloaded or disc games while on the move. If it only exists through SmartGlass there would be no need to create a piece of handheld hardware to sit around shelves, instead just create a second SmartGlass app exclusively to run games on and price it anywhere from $10 - $100. With this new idea implemented in SmartGlass any smart phone or tablet can become the ultimate Xbox mobile gaming experience.
Similarly to the Wii U. The Xbox one can stream gameplay to a secondary device while someone else is using the TV that the Xbox is attached to.
The player could even use the Xbox One controller with any device that has USB support.
Sony just added ps4 remote play to their Xperia phones...I'm jealous. C'mon Microsoft, even if you only support windows 8 devices, I would support that.
Totally need this! being able to stream to a PC or any other Microsoft/Windows device would be so awesome!
Having remote play like on PSVita with PS4 should also come to SmartGlass!
best idea ever!
I would love this feature! My dad is always hogging the TV! Lol. Please add soon xbox!
Xbox needs an answer to Playstation's Remote Play
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.
Pleaaase. So good features
Gui Kastner commented
Release this feature
stream to 360 from the xbox one along side this would be good!
Logane King commented
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..
Come on MS give us some info on whether your going to do something about this. Please
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 Magoo commented
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.
