Xbox 360 owners have a new way to navigate content on their console: Apple’s iPad.

An update to Microsoft’s Xbox Live app now allows users to connect to the device through an iPad and search for content.

“Connect your iPad for access to a quick list of your most recent console activity. Control your content with play, pause, fast forward and rewind media controls. Find fresh entertainment to play in the new Discover section,” reads a description of the features on the app’s iTunes page.

The functionality is part of Microsoft’s bigger plan to incorporate mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets into the Xbox 360 experience.

At June’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, the company unveiled SmartGlass, an app that provides a different way for users to interact with games or other entertainment.

Examples included Web browsing on a TV screen using a smartphone as a mouse, interactive family trees for the HBO series Game of Thrones, and a detailed map while playing the game Ascend: New Gods.
