Curious about streaming your games to PC? Find out more here.
Game streaming from the Xbox One console to Windows 10 PCs have finally been made available for Preview Program members on the former and Inside Beta users of the latter. A new FAQ for the same was revealed by program manager Emily Hanson on the preview forums and provided plenty of information on how the streaming would work.
It has been noted that all games will be available for streaming except those which require special hardware like Kinect or accessories not supported by PC. Since the entire console is mirrored onto your PC, you’ll be able to navigate your Home screen and use apps.
However, apps with content that’s playback protected or under DRM won’t stream to your PC. Hanson also said that publishers can choose to opt-out of streaming if they wish but as of the start of the preview, “there are no games/publishers who have explicitly opted out.”
Check out the entire FAQ here (since you need to be a preview program member to access the forums) for more information and stay tuned for more news on the Xbox One in the wake of Microsoft’s E3 conference as the week rolls on.
