Xbox SmartGlass now supports 7-inch Android tablets

If you own an Xbox 360 and a 7-inch Android tablet, we have some great news for you. Xbox SmartGlass on Google Play now supports 7-inch Android tablets. This means you can get all the cool features Xbox SmartGlass offers on your tablet, as long as it is of the smaller 7-inch variety.


It looks like 10-inch Android tablets are still not supported by Xbox SmartGlass. So while this is a step in the right direction, it's still not getting the complete line of Android tablets covered. So far, we've seen reports of success on both the Nexus 7 and the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. Hopefully Microsoft adds support for larger Android tablets soon so the whole Android line can use the app.

So what does SmartGlass do? Essentially, it allows you to control your Xbox 360 dashboard from your tablet or smartphone. The best way to think of it is as a second screen for your Xbox 360. You can control videos, navigate around the dashboard and all that good stuff.

You can also use SmartGlass to send text messages to your friends on Xbox Live. This helps you avoid the painful process of typing with the on-screen keyboard. If you own a 7-inch tablet, and you've made it work on a tablet besides the Galaxy Tab 2 or Nexus 7, hit the comments section below and let us know.
