Microsoft Corp. this month said SmartGlass functionality for the Xbox One will be faster than the current Xbox 360.

The company said it will take an average of four seconds for SmartGlass to recognize the Xbox One and is generally three to four times faster on the next-generation hardware.

In addition, users can conduct matchmaking with SmartGlass on the Xbox One without interruption of the main television screen.
