New Xbox App Update Brings Console Streaming To Windows 10


For Microsoft’s initiative to deliver a leveled experience to all its supported platforms, the Xbox company continues to work in providing the same amount of attention to each system. While console is the primary focus, PC and cloud alternatives are where the firm is pressing more features. As wire-free options receive touch screen support in endless updates, the PC realm continues to find more additions as well.

Previously, Microsoft emphasized on gaming come Windows 11 later this fall. The operating system is said to be the most support system it shipped for avid players. Elements such as auto-HDR support and native cloud streaming is said to be in tow for the operating system. Additionally, Xbox Game Pass for PC was promised to find more improvements later on in 2021 as well, the team shared.

On Tuesday, the Xbox company told that the Xbox App is to implement console streaming. So Xbox One/Xbox Series owners can mirror their game to keyboard & mouse in a new update.

Xbox Remote Play lets you play games from your Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or any generation of Xbox One on your Windows 10 PC over the internet – from your home network or away! It’s essentially a way to mirror your console gaming experience on another screen: Browse and play your full gaming catalog, change Settings, interact with your friends – your games are all there. Starting today, you can access Xbox Remote Play feature within the Xbox App on Windows 10 PCs.

This marks the first time we’ve enabled Xbox Remote Play on PC for Xbox Series X|S owners. We’ve also made additional upgrades from previous iterations of Remote Play, such as general stability updates, allowing for games to stream at 1080p up to 60fps, and adding the ability to play select Xbox 360 and Xbox Original games, which has been one of the most highly-requested features.

Of course, this is not a new feature for gaming. In fact, PlayStation 3 – PlayStation 5 already offer the feature. The same is also said for the preceding Xbox One before. However, now the tool is now officially available for those using the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. But, users cannot take complete advantage of the hardware since it only maxes out at 080p/60 frames per second.

In the same update, xCloud support finally drops for the Xbox app as well. “Game Pass members have been enjoying Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta) via browser on their phones, tablets and PCs and now can enjoy all the benefits of gaming from the cloud directly from the Xbox app,” Microsoft writes.
