The free Xbox 360 SmartGlass app arrives this week and lets players stream and share content across Microsoft devices.

The app brings SmartGlass functionality to Xbox 360 on 26th October, Microsoft's Major Nelson stated, the day Windows 8 launches. Apps for other platforms - Windows 8 PCs, tablets and smartphones - will follow.

Initially you can hook up your Microsoft device while using the new Xbox Video and Xbox Music services. These are widely available from today, when the new Xbox 360 dashboard update begins the next and final stage of its roll-out.
