xboxonecontrSay you are busy gaming on your Xbox One console but someone else in your family needs the TV. Normally this means you’d have to pause the game and let them do their things before you can resume your gaming session. However during Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement earlier today, the company announced that they would be bringing Xbox One game streaming over onto Windows 10 PCs and tablets.

According to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer at a demonstration of the feature, “With Windows 10, we will enable streaming Xbox One games to any Windows 10 PC or tablet in your home later this year.” This sounds like a pretty cool feature and it seems to be pretty straightforward to use where one would need to launch the Xbox app on their tablet or PC, and then start playing the game with a synced Xbox One controller.

Now the question is, if we can stream our Xbox One games onto the PC or tablet, would it be possible for PC games to be streamed onto the Xbox One console? As it turns out this is actually a feature that Microsoft is looking into. When asked about the feature in an interview, Spencer said, “People ask about the streaming in the opposite direction–can I stream from my PC to my Xbox?–and I’ll just say it’s something that we’re really looking at.”

He later adds, “If you think about that vision–my games are my games wherever I am, and I can play with whoever I want to play with–we want to be able to land solutions that are as native as the one we showed there. We just have to kind of work with the physics of time and work it through.”

No word on when this feature will be launched, if at all, but in the meantime who else is excited for the Xbox One to PC game streaming? Or does the idea of a PC streaming to the Xbox One sound more appealing to you?
