Android-wielding Xbox buffs, celebrate! Microsoft introduced an edition of its My Xbox Live application for the platform on June 13.
The Android application is a bit rough around the edges, but it’s a beginning.
Users will be capable of forwarding and receiving texts from their Xbox Live accounts, handle their pals list, amend their profile, alter their avatar, and appraise achievement data.
The software giant didn’t say when it expected Android users will get into more innovative functions, although it did mention the application itself will only function on select handsets.
If you interpret the application’s page on Google Play, the app is accessible for the majority of Android 2.2+ smartphones, with WGVA screen resolution or higher.
But, you don’t detect until you try to run the application after setting it if your handset doesn’t qualify.
The cool novel traits go to the My Xbox Live for iOS application, where the betterments reflect functions accessible in Windows Phone’s Xbox Companion application.
Windows Phone users have been able to search and control content from their devices, and the iOS app will now be able to do the same. The iOS application now works a remote that can navigate through the Xbox 360 menus plus play, pause, rewind, or fast forward via content.
The remote permits you to navigate via menus and content on your Xbox through your iOS device.
The iPad edition of the application is also getting a refresh, comprising Retina Display back up and bettered sign-in controls.
