Connect your Surface to the same network as your Xbox One through your router/wifi connection and SmartGlass will work from there.

thanks but that doesn't answer my question, aren't you supposed to be able to connect them with wifi direct and have a lower latency connection or smth like that?

I don't believe the SmartGlass app supports that function at the moment - if it did, it would be available in it's Settings screen (and vice-versa on the Xbox One). Bing'ing the wifi direct feature, it appears this is available on the Surface 2, altho connecting it to the Xbox One is not mentioned. If it's a feature the Surface v1 device is supposed to support, perhaps it is in it's Settings - however I see nothing in the Xbox One materials that says it is supported at this time. Perhaps down the road?

Cheers!

Correction to the above - Windows 8.1 allows for the Wifi Direct functionality, so it may not be limited to either Surface. Apologies for the gaff.
