Xbox One SmartGlass 2.9 for iOS (iPad screenshot 001)

Less than two weeks following an update which has enabled Xbox One owners to install games on their console remotely, using their iOS device, the Windows giant Microsoft today pushed another update adding nearly a dozen cool new features.

For starters, the free iPhone and iPad application now allows you to record game clips remotely, too.

And in a series of social improvements, the app now lets players share and post activity feed items and post status updates to their activity feed, as well as browse through their activity feed directly on their profile page.

The app is now available in more markets than before, as are TV and OneGuide features.

Release and feature notes pertaining to Xbox One games can now be browsed inside the app as well, and you can now display incoming messages from other console owners in an all-new conversation view.

Microsoft previously announced that the live TV streaming feature is being worked on. Called ‘Stream TV to SmartGlass,’ it’s scheduled to launch first in the territories that are getting the new Xbox Digital TV Tuner for the console in October.

    It’s a nice feature, the record thing, although I find it much easier to sat “Xbox Record That”, but for people without the Kinect unit, it could come in handy.

    Can’t wait for the TV streaming update.
