SmartGlass for Android updated with push notifications


Microsoft silently updated its Xbox One SmartGlass app for Android today, bringing it closer to parity with its iOS and Windows Phone counterparts. Gamers with smartphones or tablets powered by Google’s mobile operating system can now receive push notifications directly to their device whenever someone sends them a message on Xbox Live.

In addition to an updated alert system, SmartGlass 2.2.0 introduces a dedicated hub for clips made with the Game DVR.
