Xbox SmartGlass won’t support iOS/Android until ‘early 2013’
Xbox SmartGlass isn’t coming to iOS or Android until well into 2013 it seems. The only supported platforms for SmartGlass right now are Windows Phone and Windows 8.
Microsoft confirmed recently that Android and iOS won’t get added to the list of devices that SmartGlass supports until ‘early 2013’.
This is pretty bad news for SmartGlass and I’d wager that not supporting iOS or Android out of the gate will translate into many Xbox 360 owners forgetting the feature ever existed.
For all the time Microsoft spent during E3 hyping up SmartGlass, and with the Wii U coming out in a few weeks, Microsoft sure blew it on SmartGlass by not having it support Apple’s popular platform or Google’s mobile juggernaut at launch.
