Microsoft have made some interesting additions to Windows 10. On the gaming side, Windows 10 now comes with an XBox App. You will be able to log into your XBox/Microsoft account and quickly send out status updates to all of your friends.
However, one of the main things that you will be able to do is stream your games. If you have an XBox One you will be able to stream those games to your Windows 10 device. Of course, the XBox One recently gained the ability to play your XBox 360 games on the XBox one so you will be able to stream those games as well.
Another major part of the XBox app on Windows 10 is the game DVR. This feature will allow you to record gameplay from your XBox One. This is all well and good, but what if you are not recording and something amazing happens that you want to share? you can say “xbox, record that” and you will be able to then record the last 30 seconds of gameplay.
Again, this is quite an interesting addition to Windows 10. For one I think it makes sense because Microsoft is trying to unify the Windows ecosystem more. The fact that you can play games on your XBox One means that you could effectively use the XBox App as a monitor for your XBox. That way if your TV stops working then you still have access to the games on your XBox One.
On a side note, we also know that Killer Instinct (the popular XBox One fighting game) will be coming to PC some time soon and it’s going to work on Windows 10. My guess is that Microsoft and Iron Galaxy will be designing it to work with the XBox app.
How about you? Have you managed to stream your XBox One games to your Windows 10 computer? Have you managed to share your gameplay using the XBox App? Let me know in the comments.
