Put down that controller and navigate your Xbox One using your mobile device's touch screen.
[MUSIC] When it comes to interacting with your Xbox One you're not limited to only using your controller or voice commands. With the Xbox One SmartGlass app you can navigate your console, use it as a keyboard, control media, and sometimes even get extra info about whatever you're watching or playing. First, download the Xbox One SmartGlass app. It's available on iOS, Android, or Windows phone. Then connect your phone or tablet to the same Wifi network as your Xbox. Then launch the app, and tap connect. Once you're connected, there's a ton you can do. From the left menu, you can access all of your profile info, including things like messages and any game clips. But the best part about the app, is the way you can control the console. From the bottom right, launch the remote to navigate the Xbox just like you would on your controller. [SOUND] The app even has a search option so you can give your voice a run. Plus you can do things like launch a game, all from within the app. Some games even have companion info. For example, with NBA2K14, I can check out my game progress and clips by tapping the details from the title. For more tips on the Xbox One, visit howto.cnet.com. For CNET, I'm Sharon Vaknin. [MUSIC]
