Xbox SmartGlass Exclusive: "The Company of Dwarves" Excerpt

This clip is part of the Xbox SmartGlass exclusive featurette "The Company of Dwarves," which can be experienced when you buy "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" on Xbox Video.



Xbox SmartGlass is a companion application for Xbox 360 available for Windows 8, Windows Phone, iOS, Android (version 4.0 and above)  and Windows Server 2012. It was announced by Microsoft during E3 2012 and released on October 26, 2012, coinciding with the release of Windows 8.

It connects with the Xbox 360 and allows more interactive entertainment, allowing mobile devices to potentially serve as second screens and remote controller. Currently only Windows 8 phones and iOS devices fully utilise the full service of SmartGlass such as Halo 4 stats and Forza Horizon GPS. Android does not yet support these functions.

Users of Windows Server 2012 can currently download the application from the Windows Store after installing the Windows Desktop Experience feature in the Server Manager
