Though yesterday's announcement of the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection
stole the show in terms of Microsoft news, that wasn't all that the company had up its sleeve in terms of new things that they're bringing to the table. After being beta tested in private for quite a while, Microsoft has officially updated their Wireless Display app to allow players to stream their PC games to their Xbox One systems. Similar in function to Steam's Big Picture Mode, you can remotely play your PC games on your TV by beaming it to the Xbox. Any games can be streamed, be it from the Epic, Steam, or even the Windows Games Store, with the only limit being on media streaming content, such as Netflix or Hulu, which shouldn't be an issue, as both services have native Xbox One apps. The update is now live, and can be downloaded off the Microsoft Store.
The same casting experience available on Microsoft's Surface Hub and Windows has finally arrived on Xbox One! Microsoft's Wireless Display app lets you wirelessly project your Windows or Android based devices to your Xbox One. - Instantly share photos you've just taken with family and friends without having the photos sync through a cloud service. - Share video clips you’ve recorded with family and friends - Project your favorite websites with Microsoft Edge to the biggest screen in your house - Mirror your Android games to your TV so your friends can watch - Play your PC games on your Xbox while using the Xbox controller as a gamepad - Use your PC on your Xbox One and use the Xbox controller as a mouse/keyboard Source
