Microsoft is now letting Xbox One owners stream their PC games to the console. You will also be able to use a controller to play these games. This is possible thanks to a newly updated app called Wireless Display that lets users play Steam or other games directly on the Xbox One.
Console owners will also be able to use their regular Xbox controller to not only control the remote PC but also control games using it. You can also use it to deliver presentations through the Xbox. That’s a pretty big deal for the console.
The Wireless Display app lets you create a Miracast connection between a PC and Xbox One. PC owners can stream to the Xbox with the Windows key + P combination. There will be different latency modes for watching videos and streaming games from a remote PC. You can’t stream stuff like Netflix however.
Microsoft has been testing the app with members of its Insiders program for a few months. The app doesn’t have support for keyboard and mouse input just yet, so it won’t be possible to use traditional PC accessories for gameplay when streaming PC titles to the Xbox One. Users will love this latest addition to the console.
