Xbox One game stream to Windows 10 PCs

Ahead of the Windows 10 release, Microsoft is announcing today that is removing the preview tag of the game streaming function on Xbox One and it’s making available to everyone. Microsoft’s Larry Hryb, also known as Major Nelson, reveals on July 17th that the company is gradually rolling out a new update to enable users to play Xbox One games over their home network to Windows 10 machines using the Xbox app with the latest update.

Microsoft first announced the feature in January, and it allows gamers to play Xbox One games across rooms without having to interrupt people already watching TV where the console is located.

Players can enable the game streaming on Xbox One by going to Settings > Preferences > Allow game streaming to other devices. Then on the Xbox app for Windows 10, users need to go to Connect > + Add a device from the menu on the left side of the app, then simply selecting the Xbox One console will connect to the game. Players will also need to connect and Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller to their Windows 10 PC or tablet to control the game.

To resume a recently played game, players need to go to Home > Recently Played and clicking Play from console to start a new streaming session.

With this new update, Microsoft is making some improvements to the Xbox app on Windows 10, including “party chat” mode to allow players to connect with Xbox One players over the app. Among other changes, the company is also introducing a new redesigned Home fee, new features to customize their avatars, and options to share game clips with other people.
