Xbox One: Stream PC games

Microsoft’s mission to become truly platform-agnostic continues to take shape as it is now possible to natively stream your PC display (and all of your PC games) to the Xbox One. As The Verge noted on Wednesday morning, Microsoft recently updated its Wireless Display app to let anyone turn their Xbox One into a wireless display for their PC. Once the two devices are synced, you can control your PC with an Xbox One controller too.

If you want to test it out for yourself, just download the app on your Xbox One (you’ll find it in the store), open it up, and you’re ready to wirelessly connect. Once the app is open on your Xbox One, press Windows key + P  to bring up the “Project” menu on your PC. Click the “Connect to a wireless display” link. Your Xbox One should appear as one of the options. Click on it, and your screen will cast to the display your Xbox One is connected to.

There are limitations to the Wireless Display app, as your can’t stream protected content (like Netflix). But if you’re just looking for an easy way to cast PC games to your TV and play them with an Xbox One controller, this might be the best way to accomplish that. The Xbox One controller even doubles as a mouse.

The app has been in testing for months, but this is the first time that the general public will have access to it. While it isn’t game streaming in the traditional sense, Microsoft is making significant progress on its upcoming Project xCloud service as well, as it demonstrated during a live stream this week:
