Install the Xbox SmartGlass app on your Windows Phone

Overview

The Xbox SmartGlass app allows you to use your Windows Phone as a companion remote control for your Xbox 360 or Xbox One. The Xbox SmartGlass app is a free download from the Windows Store.

App requirements

To use the Xbox SmartGlass app on your Windows phone, you need:

  • A Windows Phone with 512 MB of RAM and Windows Phone 7.5 software or later.
  • A Microsoft account and an associated Xbox Live profile.
  • An Internet connection or local network connection that is capable of connecting to your Xbox 360 or Xbox One console.

Install the Xbox SmartGlass app on your Windows phone

Note The Xbox 360 console requires SmartGlass 1.0. The Xbox One console requires SmartGlass 2.0. If you want to use SmartGlass to control both consoles you will need to install both Xbox SmartGlass apps.

  1. On your Windows Phone, tap Marketplace.
  2. Browse or search for “SmartGlass”.
  3. Follow the instructions to install the Xbox SmartGlass app.

Note Your Windows Phone can communicate with your Xbox 360 console through the phone’s existing mobile network. However, you'll get better performance if your phone is connected to the same wireless network as your console. To find out how to connect your Windows Phone to the wireless network associated with your Xbox console, contact your phone service provider.
