Back in the beginning of the previous month, we said that the official Xbox One SmartGlass app had received some important updates that we discovered by having a look at the official changelog. And, usually, after an important app receives a big change, then most likely there are some minor updates which get released after that. This latest release is exactly about that, as on the official changelog we see only this – “bug fixes”. But, looking on the Windows Store and seeing the feedback from other users, I’ve been able to take notice of some other improvements.

This isn’t a confirmed update, but it seems that now the Xbox One SmartGlass app eats up less memory, and thus has a lighter footprint. After all, it wasn’t quite a heavy hogger, since this is a companion, but it’s a welcome update, nonetheless. Also, it seems that omnipresent syncing issues have also been fixed. Even more, there were some problems with the rendering of game clips and according to some, that’s been fixed, as well.
