let me turn on the xbox one with the smartglass app
Would be very convenient to able to turn on your xbox one through the smart glass app. Also when you are not near the screen being able to hit an off button that turns the system off without having to hold the home button on the smart glass app.
[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas posted by Monte2002 and Superman X. Thanks everyone!]
The Xbox One SmartGlass app for Windows, Windows Phone, iOS and Android are being updated to let you power your Xbox One on and off when your devices are on the same home network as your console.
This would be great if you didn't have to be in the same room with the Xbox... like.. I could be 2 blocks away and power it on and fire up the Netflix app and start a movie so when my date and I get home we just sit down and we're ready to ignore the movie
@Insane79 there is an ios version i have it on my iphone 6 plus !

why there is no iOS version of this smart glass? that the fair i ain't giving up my iPhone micrsoft :-/
Great news to finally hear this has been implemented.
from smart glass connect from internet to my xbox at home and turn it off or on , or download games , and view download progress.
Given the shared kernel with Windows, something akin to WOL/magic packet should be a no brainer.
..and it would be great if i can choose which other devices are powered on when i use SmartGlass. If i want to watch TV in the bedroom and power on the xbox via SmartGlass, i don't want to automatically switch on all my devices in the living room (Receiver and TV)!

Seriously, if even Sony can do this, it should be a no brainer. Amazed it wasn't there from Day One.
The PS4 has had this feature via its companion app since day one... need I say more? Seriously though, this would be so awesome!
Yes that 's it. Would be so awesome. I hope Microsoft integrates this feature soon.
I had the same idea, however I would like to expand on it. I would like to be able to pin the on button to the start menu on my windows phone and tablet.
This is a great idea. Powering down the Xbox from SmartGlass would also be useful.

After pulling into my driveway and connecting to my WiFi I could have my xbox powered on and ready before I even walk through the door! It sounds so lazy of me but it would be awesome.
Integrated with purchasing games digitally. So people at work turn it on buy the game and its all set when they get home.
This is sorely needed, I bought the digital TV Tuner. the Xbox is in one part of the house, I may be in another and want to watch streamed TV via smart glass, why not be able to turn it on remotley
