It means the console could theoretically stream playable game content to a connected PC over Wi-Fi, whilst the main TV could still be displaying a TV feed. The ambitious plan, if enacted, could significantly bolster the Xbox One's reputation as a multi-tasking multimedia device. Spencer has cautioned, however, that the team hasn't yet determined whether it's feasible in practice.
"Wouldn't it be great if we could play those [Xbox One games] anywhere in the house?" Spencer said, before demonstrating Forza Horizon 2 being streamed to, and played on, a Windows 10 PC.
The feature is expected to roll out later this year.
Spencer has since revealed on Twitter that he wants the Xbox One to still function as a media player whilst this streaming occurs. When asked by a fan whether it was possible to play on PC whilst watching TV through the console, he replied: "That's our goal but we haven't completely landed the feature yet so we can't promise it yet."
