    360 smartglass does not work at all for windows 10! It will “try” to connect to the console from my laptop and it will keep telling me to do the same 3 steps over and over again. I go over each one and retry to connect and it will say the same thing.
    Someone, please get this fixed! I know now that the new Xbox 1 has come out everybody has one and they can stream from it just fine, but for the people who don’t have one or they can’t afford one at the moment(me) can we get this fixed!
