Windows Phone App to Control Xbox 360 Coming Soon

October 5, 2011 No Comments

With the announcement of Microsoft’s Live TV partnerships, Microsoft is throwing something into the mix to sweeten  things up a bit. Microsoft has developed an application that Windows Phone owners can use to control their Xbox called the Xbox companion app. The best part about all of this is that the Xbox companion app will be available for free.

  • Finding content - Xbox companion provides access to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace of games, movies, music and TV shows.
  • Learn more about your content – The Xbox companion app will provide information and related details about specific content on the Xbox 360. If an Xbox owner is listening to a song then Windows Phone users can simply bring up information on the song name, artist and albums etc.
  • Control and play - The Xbox companion app includes a controller mode that allows Windows Phone users to navigate the Xbox dashboard or control video and music playback.

Microsoft claims that the Windows Phone campanion app and the Xbox 360 work together “virtually instantaneously”. Here’s a short video of the app in action:
