Microsoft’s New Features: New Streaming and Sharing App at E3
Technology is evolving almost every day. New features on computers are coming out every week and it becomes really impressive how smart people have come up with such idea. Talking about new features, did you know that the Xbox 360 is getting a little smarter nowadays?
Last Monday, Microsoft Corp. kicked off the Electronic Entertainment Expo by revealing a new software they call the Xbox SmartGlass. This newest software that they have created allows the users of Xbox 360 to stream and share content across smartphones, tablets and even on Television sets. In addition, it was also revealed that time that it was bringing its Internet Explorer browser to the console this fall.
“Internet Explorer couple with the power of Xbox will, for the first time, deliver a fast, fluid, intuitive Web experience in the living room,” said Marc Whitten, the corporate vice president of Xbox Live.
We have enjoyed the new features and technologies brought about by SmartGlass in the previous years as it demonstrated in several ways, say for example the turning of a smartphone into a remote control used to surf the Web on a TV and utilizing a tablet as a way to display information about games, TV shows, and movies. These are actually simultaneously being played on a television. however, the availability of the app will still be later this year for Windows phones, Windows 8 and other portable devices so we’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.
Furthermore, the feature is just similar to the Wii U which was introduced by Nintendo Co. The upcoming high-definition console will feature a touchscreen controller, which Nintendo announced Sunday would be called the Wii U GamePad.
