The Xbox One All-Digital Edition Mock Up Image

Microsoft now allows Xbox One owners to stream PC games to their console, and play with their Xbox One Controller.

Using Microsoft Wireless Display, users can play Steam games or other titles directly on an Xbox One. Users can use a regular Xbox One controller to control the remote PC, enabling the console to be used for a multitude of applications.

Microsoft’s Wireless Display app uses Miracast to create a connection between the users PC and Xbox One, allowing users to cast using the Winkey + P combination. The format offers different latency modes for gaming and video, allowing users to stream video should they wish. Protected content such as Netflix cannot be streamed, however. Just use the app, guys.

Tom Warren from The Verge has made a fantastic video on Twitter showcasing the feature, check it out below!

Sadly, the feature does not yet support keyboard and mouse inputs, but with Microsoft rolling out keyboard and mouse support slowly, it’s sure to be coming to the not too distant future.

What do you think? Likely to use this feature? Or are you simply going to stick to a Steam link? Let us know below!
