With the launch of Windows 10 upon us, Microsoft is making good on its promise from earlier this year: Windows 10 users can now stream gameplay footage from Xbox One. Which is awesome, and it might finally convince me to buy a new Xbox.
As we already learned, the game streaming function will only work within your house by pairing the two devices over your local network. In a blog post yesterday, Xbox's Larry Hryb elaborated a bit more on the features of the new Xbox app for Windows 10, which include a party chat mode that lets you talk with your streaming buddies inside or outside of a game, and new options for sharing local game clips and screenshots.
