The Xbox Smartglass app, which allows Xbox One users to use their mobile, tablet or Windows 8 PC as a second screen device, will launch on November 22, Microsoft has confirmed.

The app will be available to download for free on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, iOS and Android devices.

Xbox Smartglass lets Xbox One users check their achievements, watch Game DVR videos and message their Xbox Live friends. The app can also function directly with Xbox One games, displaying game tips or bespoke content.

Battlefield 4, for example, uses Smartglass to display an image of the current map, while Dead Rising 3 reskins the device to act as an in-game phone.

Xbox One launches on November 22.

You'll only need to do that if you own an xbox one surely? Looks like I need a new app then.

Cheers! I'll look forward to the 'This application is incompatible with your device' later on then. I should really upgrade...
