Xbox One Streaming on Oculus Rift

Xbox One Streaming app for Oculus Rift let you play games on huge virtual screen

You can now play Xbox One games on Oculus Rift on a massive virtual screen with the new streaming app. Check out the video and download the app.

Microsoft now has an app in the Oculus Store to stream Xbox games to the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

With the Xbox One Streaming app you can stream any Xbox One and Xbox 360 (via Backward Compatibility) games using one of the three virtual environments on a massive virtual screen.

The only thing you need is an Oculus Rift connected to your Windows 10 computer and Xbox One console in the same network. You can even select to stream games from different consoles, but again if they’re in the same network.

Microsoft has also included an Xbox One guide to control your virtual experience. In addition, you can control whether your virtual screen is flat or curved, and you can push the screen forward or back farther to make it smaller.

Although, the Xbox One Streaming app will work with your Oculus Rift using a wireless connection, Microsoft recommends a wired connection for the best experience.
