In 2015, Xbox SmartGlass and Xbox Games apps were merged altogether, and the Xbox SmartGlass app was later renamed to simply Xbox app on Windows 10.

As Microsoft released the beta version of the new Xbox app for Windows 10 1909, the old Xbox app was rebranded to Xbox Console Companion. The app kept its existing features as the previous one as it doesn't support the Xbox Series X & S consoles and most of its new features such as PC Game Pass and Cloud Gaming are only available on the new app.

Xbox Console Companion was officially deprecated in August 28, 2023.
