One of the advantages of any game that releases on Xbox One and not PS4 is the opportunity to have SmartGlass functionality as part of the game.
It looks like Titanfall will support Microsoft’s second screen app, as the game’s Twitter account revealed when someone posed a question about SmartGlass being integrated into the game. It’s unknown presently how this will be used in the game.
@Sagemaster2000 Titanfall will support Smart Glass. We will have more details on this in the future.

One game that already uses this feature is Halo 4, in which it uses SmartGlass as a portal to the Halo Waypoint match stats compository, and so something like this would make sense for Titanfall as well.
For the people that will be ignoring the console versions of Titanfall, here are the specifications for the game on PC.
This seems like a good way to use the SmartGlass app, since Titanfall is a pure online game and having match stats can be handy for players to see how they’re performing.
Another way that they could use it is by having the app give the player an overview of the map they’re on.
There are countless ways this could be used for the game and I think this is something that will appear in future games for Xbox One.
