Microsoft now lets you stream PC games to an Xbox One and use a controller


Microsoft is now letting Xbox One owners stream their PC games to the console and use a controller to play them. A newly updated app, Wireless Display app, from Microsoft enables the support so you can play Steam games or other titles directly on an Xbox One. You can use a regular Xbox controller to control the remote PC, enabling game play or even the ability to use an Xbox for presentations.

Microsoft’s Wireless Display app uses Miracast to create a connection between a PC and the Xbox One, and you can cast to the Xbox using the winkey + P combination. There are different latency modes for gaming and watching videos from a remote PC, and the app is ideal if you want to project a stream or video onto the Xbox. You won’t be able to stream protected content like Netflix, though.


so opposite direction now from what the xbox app does on xbox to pc. If it works anything like streaming from xbox to pc its tough to play on high quality unless your PC and Xbox are wired. I still have network latency issues and sometimes screen lag unless i knock the resolution down.


I would assume this requires both to be on the same network?
