Microsoft doesn't like the way your phone, tablet and Xbox play right now, so it's created SmartGlass -- and it intends to bring all your devices closer.
The new feature will connect all of your devices together in an effort to enhance the way you play video games or watch programming on your Xbox.
In a demonstration Monday at E3, Microsoft showed how SmartGlass lets mobile devices work as companions to the Xbox when watching a show or movie. As an example, the company showed how a user could watch an episode of "Game of Thrones" on an Xbox and be presented with a map of the show's world on an enabled tablet.
With video games, the example that was showed was of Madden, the NFL video game. Users can choose plays and modify them on a tablet -- seemingly in secret from their opponents -- and then run them on the Xbox.
