SmartGlass, which enabled Microsoft's Xbox 360 to communicate with mobile devices, came relatively late in the console's life cycle. But Xbox One has been designed to maximize interplay with your Windows, Android, and iOS hardware, Microsoft revealed today. The company is sharing new details on what the next-generation SmartGlass experience will entail. First, connecting your console and smartphone or tablet will be a much faster process. Whereas the original app controlled Xbox 360 through the cloud, SmartGlass on Xbox One talks to the console directly over your Wi-Fi network. Microsoft says the initial connection now takes just four seconds, and subsequent connections only get faster from there.
