Microsoft have pushed out an updated version of the Xbox SmartGlass app for Windows Phone, the app enables the phone to become a 2nd screen to the Xbox with features like being able to use it as a remote control and browse the web on the 360.

Rather unhelpfully Microsoft haven’t published what’s new in with the app but I have seen report on twitter that the updated app works better on the Lumia 920

You can the app in the Windows Phone store

Xbox SmartGlass lets your Windows Phone work with your Xbox 360 console to bring rich, interactive experiences and unique content about what you're watching or playing, right to the device that's already in your hand. Interact with your favorite TV shows, movies, music, sports, and games, and bring remote control to a whole new level.

Xbox SmartGlass lets you:
o         Navigate your Xbox 360 with swipe and tap
o         Use your phone's keyboard to type to your Xbox 360
o         Browse the Internet on your Xbox 360 with full keyboard and zooming
o         Play, pause, fast forward, rewind, and stop videos and music on your Xbox 360
o         Search the full Xbox catalog of music, video, and games
o         Enjoy rich, interactive experiences from select game and entertainment content creators

This app requires an Xbox 360 console, and an Xbox membership.
