Posted on December 5, 2011, Phil Owen You’ll Be Able To Control Your Xbox With Your Phone Tomorrow
If you have a Windows Phone, watch out; you’ll get some cool added functionality tomorrow alongside the new Xbox 360 dashboard update. You’ll be getting the Xbox Companion app, which will allow you to search the Xbox and Zune Marketplaces for movies, TV shows, games and whatever else is in the Marketplaces, and also use Bing to search among every app on Xbox Live; so you’ll be able to search for a movie on Netflix, Hulu and Epix all at once, for example.
You’ll also be able to use the app to view info on whatever it is you’re doing with the Xbox at any given moment. You’ll be able to control the videos you watch with the app. You’ll be able to navigate your Xbox at will with it.
So that all sounds intriguing and maybe even helpful. I think I’m going to have to download this tomorrow.
