Play your Xbox One on a Win­dows 10 PC

Tech Advisor - - HOW TO -

Lewis Pain­ter ex­plains how you can use the Xbox app to play your Xbox One games on a PC

The Xbox app

The Xbox app is an in­te­gral part of the Win­dows 10 ex­pe­ri­ence for gamers as it al­lows you to do a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties that, un­til now, were only able to be com­pleted di­rectly on an Xbox One. The Xbox app al­lows you to con­trol the ad­min side of your Xbox Live ac­count, as well as join par­ties via your PC to talk to your Xbox One com­rades. Win­dows is even boast­ing cross-plat­form mul­ti­player for cer­tain games, in­clud­ing the up­com­ing RPG Fa­ble Le­gends and third-per­son shooter Gi­gan­tic.

You can also use the Xbox app as a re­mote con­trol for your Xbox One, with a swipe ges­ture in­ter­face for touch en­abled de­vices and a stan­dard but­ton lay­out for those of us who don’t have a touch-based in­put.

The Xbox app’s best fea­ture is its abil­ity to con­nect to and stream games di­rectly from your Xbox One to your PC from any­where in your world, as long as you have an ac­tive Wi-Fi con­nec­tion. Sim­ply plug your Xbox One con­troller into your PC/ lap­top, con­nect to your Xbox and click ‘Stream’ to get go­ing. With Xbox gam­ing now avail­able on PC, it only makes sense to in­clude a DVR – and that’s ex­actly what Mi­crosoft has done. Now, you can quickly and easily record both game­play videos and take screen­shots while play­ing both Xbox and PC games.
