Microsoft today announced a new feature that will allow Windows Phones and Windows 8 PCs to wirelessly beam content between devices, including to Microsoft's XBox gaming product. The idea is to allow consumers invested in Microsoft's products to consume media on one device and then transfer the experience to another without losing their place. SmartGlass will work with smartphones and tablets, including those running Android or iOS. The smartphones and tablets will also act as companion devices, and can be set to receive and/or reveal ancillary content associated with the video or other media being consumed. Microsoft also unveiled XBox Music, a new music service that will allow Windows Phone and Windows 8 users to stream music to their devices. Both services are expected to launch next year.

It always sounds promising, but like all other window products/services it will take a few years to be decent.
