How to Stream PC Games to Xbox One
Streaming has taken some large leaps over the past few years, letting fans play their favorite games on their console. Just recently, fans can now stream their PC games to Xbox One. If you’re having trouble, here’s how to stream PC games to Xbox One.
Microsoft has just updated their Wireless Display app, which now allows the Xbox One to turn into a display for a PC. As soon as you sync both devices, you should be good to go for streaming. There’s a short process you need to go through, though it’s nothing too difficult.
Just follow these steps to sync both devices together:
- Download the Wireless Display app on the Xbox One store.
- Open the app and then press CTRL + P on your PC.
- You should now have pulled up a “Project” menu on your computer.
- From there, look for your Xbox One under the “Connect to a wireless display.”
- Link both your PC and console, and your PC screen should now be streaming to your Xbox One.
It’s worth noting, however, that there are a few restrictions that come with the Wireless Display app. One example is that you won’t be able to stream Netflix to your console. Shows are better off being watched through their respective apps on your console or PC.
If you’re only looking for a way to play your PC games on your console, then this app should work perfectly. The streaming app supports Xbox One controllers, but not the keyboard and mouse. You won’t be able to play your PC games using your traditional setup if you’re planning on outputting your game through the Xbox One.
That about wraps up everything you need to know about how to stream your PC games to the Xbox One. If you’re looking for more on streaming and other consoles, make sure to search for Twinfinite.
