Windows 10 Can Stream Xbox One Games
Later this year, you'll be able to stream console games to your PC or tablet, provided it's running Windows 10.
On Wednesday during a Windows 10 event, Microsoft's Phil Spencer revealed that the newest PC operating system will support Xbox One game streaming later this year.
"Wouldn't it be great if we could play those [Xbox One games] anywhere in the house?" Spencer said.
Windows 10 will allow game streaming to Windows 10 PCs and tablets. Right now, it doesn't look like the streaming functionality will work on Windows Phones, though that feature may come later.
Once you sync up your Xbox One with another device, such as a Surface Pro 3, you'll be able to stream games, even console-exclusive titles like Forza Horizon 2.
"We have to put the gamer at the center of every experience," Spencer said as he wrapped up his presentation. He added that Microsoft will talk more about it Xbox One-to-PC game-streaming service later this year during the Game Developers Conference in March.
