You can now stream PC games to an Xbox One

Microsoft's Translucent Xbox Controller Is Now Available in White

Microsoft has lifted the lid on another special Xbox One Wireless Controller, the Phantom White Special Edition, which is due to arrive at a retailer near you next month.

Over the last several years, there has been a big push from consumers and hardware creators to enable the consumption of digital content across a variety of devices.

The new Wireless Display app was released by Microsoft today on Xbox One and it allows you to stream content that you have on your PC directly to your Xbox One to then view on your TV.

How does it all work?

If you want to test it out for yourself, just download the app on your Xbox One (you'll find it in the store), open it up, and you're ready to wirelessly connect. Using the Miracast connection standard, the Wireless Display app can mirror your PC's output to the Xbox One console over your local home network.

The app is a handy companion for most Xbox One owners, however, falters similarly to other wireless technologies.

Although best suited for entertainment and screen-sharing, Microsoft is also pushing its gaming capabilities - bringing PC games to your Xbox One. It should be stated that the app doesn't support keyboard and mouse input, though you can use your Xbox controller as a mouse & keyboard, though a chat pad is required for keyboard functionality.
