Xbox comes to Amazon Kindle

Publish date:

Microsoft's Xbox SmartGlass app has launched on Amazon's smash-hit Kindle tablet.

The app has been available on Windows Phone, iOS and Android for some time, but needed to be created specifically for Amazon's Fire tablet.

SmartGlass, which was unveiled at E3 last year, allows users to view their Xbox friends list, send messages, as well as use the tablet as a companion screen with Xbox games. The tablet can be used to simply obtain information about a game or movie, or as a supplementary controller.

The app is available on both Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD.
