How to broadcast Xbox games to your Windows PC using the Xbox app

In fact, there are two different ways to enjoy Xbox titles away from the console: you can stream them directly from your home console using a network connection or you can utilize cloud gaming on supported devices.

It was recently announced that Microsoft is updating the Xbox App to allow users to stream console games to Windows 10 computers, which is great news for gamers who don’t like to be tied to one device or location.

You’ll need to be a Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member to use the Xbox Cloud Streaming, but no membership is required for Remote Play. The feature is still being rolled out for Windows 10 devices so only 22 countries currently have access. Thankfully you can enjoy using it with not just the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles, but also older Xbox One consoles.

There are a few things you’ll need to make this work, such as a compatible controller and a decent network connection, but if you have those boxes ticked then there’s nothing stopping you from connecting your old laptop to the service and streaming games outside on a nice day, or chilling out in another room if someone wants to commandeer the family TV.

According the Microsoft’s Remote Play webpage, you’ll need the following to use the service:

•An Xbox Series X / S / One console (game streaming must be enabled in Settings)

•A Windows 10 PC with at least 2GB of RAM and 1.5 GHz CPU or faster

•Compatible Xbox Controller (mouse and keyboard and touch are currently not supported for remote play gaming)

•The Xbox app for PC •A Microsoft account with an Xbox profile

•An internet connection of at least 7-10 Mbps. Wired is preferred, but wireless is also achievable for both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz with varying results. Unlike PlayStation 4’s Remote Play and PS Now, Microsoft’s streaming feature requires your Xbox console and PC to be on the same network, so you won’t be able to crack your laptop out at work and stream games from the Xbox Series X you have sitting at home.

It’s also likely that you already have the Xbox app installed on your Windows 10 PC or laptop if it’s a recently released product, but make sure you’re signed on with the same Microsoft account that you use for your console.
