Xbox Companion to be Released December 6th

The Xbox 360 is expected to see a new upgrade to the dashboard interface on December 6th tomorrow, but along with that Windows Phone users will also be able to download an Xbox Companion app which will let you control certain aspects of the new Xbox 360 interface. You’ll be able to use your phone to search the Xbox catalog for movies, TV shows, music, games and apps using Bing. You’ll also be able to see recently played games and apps as well as browse the Zune video catalog and view detailed information about the content you’re watching. Of course, you can choose to play any of the content that you find on the phone’s Xbox companion on your Xbox 360 and you’ll have remote controls for pausing, fast forwarding, etc. You can even set beacons for Xbox games that you want to play with your friends. If you’ve got an Xbox and a Windows Phone, this certainly looks like a must-have app.

You can see the app in action in the below video and if you’d like to see some more screenshots, you’ll find a few in Major Nelson’s Flickr Stream.
