Xbox SmartGlass app for Android released

Microsoft's SmartGlass has finally launched, and the company has already pushed an Android app to the official Google Play Store.

The app requires Android 4.0 or higher, and will allow users to interact with their Xbox 360 to control video playback, navigate the interface, and search content.

While Windows Phone users will find the tightest integration of all, the Android port still lets users steer through the Dashboard, input text, browse the web (with zooming), search for local content, and control media playback. Players can still chat with their friends and modify their Xbox profile if they're not planning to lurk around the system all day. The interface is strikingly similar to past releases (including Android) and still demands at least an 800 x 480 screen for admission -- sorry, Wildfire S fans.

Here's the full list of features:

Navigate your Xbox 360 with swipe and tap
Use your phone's keyboard to type to your Xbox 360
Browse the Internet on your Xbox 360 with full keyboard and zooming
Play, pause, fast forward, rewind, and stop videos and music on your Xbox 360
Search the full Xbox catalogue of music, video, and games
Enjoy rich, interactive experiences from select game and entertainment content creators
Track and compare your achievements with your Xbox friends
Change up your 3D avatar
Message your Xbox friends
Edit your Xbox profile

You can download the Android app directly from the Google Play Store.

Steam App for Android and iOS devices

Valve has launched "Steam Mobile" app for iOS and Android devices. At the moment the app will only allow you to chat, read a limited gaming news feed, browse profiles and groups and purchase Steam games. You can't play from it, for now...

The App is available from the
Android Marketplace and the App Store . Only invitees can log in as it is in beta testing stage. If you try to log in Valve will notice that and will send you and invite (if you are lucky enough) to test the App.
