Windows 10 to Open Streaming Capabilities from Xbox One
During today's Windows 10 reveal event, Microsoft announced the new PC operating system would support streaming from the Xbox One.
Windows 10's release is fast approaching; the Technical Preview is already out and being tested and today Microsoft unleashed a host of details about its new OS, including the ability to stream from your Xbox One to your computer. The Verge reports that apparently Xbox One owners will have even more portability of their consoles with the new ability to stream their games from their consoles to their PCs or tablets. The new feature was shown today at Microsoft's event where Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox, showed off his Forza Horizon 2 skills when streaming from an Xbox One to a Microsoft Surface.
It appears that the whole process will be relatively easy. Players will only need to establish a connection between the two devices once and then they will be bonded for life. You will then travel to the game through the Xbox App. "We think enabling people to play multiplayer games on Windows 10, across Xbox One and Windows 10 will unlock he potential of Xbox Live," Spencer explained.
There's still no set release date for Windows 10, but we do know that when it does finally come out it will be a free upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 for the first year.
