The hottest thing in the game world right now is playing Xbox One games on one Windows 10 PC. By that we mean streaming Xbox One games to a Windows 10 PC, so yes, you need an Xbox One. It’s ideal for those who share a TV or monitor at home. So if the little sister wants to see Barbie Adventures, or the little brother wants Pokemon, you can simply get up and play all the Xbox One games on your Windows 10 computer.
(Stream Xbox One games to Windows 10 PC
Remember that this feature only works on a local network so you can’t take your laptop 10 blocks away from your friend and expect to stream your games continuously unless it is possible to connect to your local network from such a distance.
Make sure you have updated your computer to Windows 10. If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, the update should be free, so go ahead if you haven’t already.
Also make sure your Xbox One is connected to Wi-Fi or a wired connection. We recommend a wired connection at all times. Also make sure that the latest update is installed on your Windows 10 computer and that your Xbox One is updated with the latest software version.
Here we go:
Connect your Xbox One controller to your Windows 10 computer via USB. Wait patiently for Windows to install the drivers, then launch the Xbox application. Create an Xbox Live account, if you haven’t already, then sign in.
There should be something on the left side that says Connect, make sure you click it. Now choose whether you want to add your Xbox One to the list of devices available for connection. Then click on Test Streaming, where Microsoft will perform the speed test to ensure that your Internet speed is fast enough.
Finally, click Stream and see how your Xbox One is connected to your computer. You are now ready to stream all your favorite games.
It’s so simple, but remember that your keyboard and mouse don’t work, at least not now. Microsoft should release an update for Xbox One in the future that supports this feature, but it is not yet sure if it is only intended for menu navigation or if games are included in the feature.
