Want to play Xbox One games on your Windows 10 PC, or an Oculus Rift, while your roommate is hogging your TV?
To take advantage of game streaming, you need: • Xbox One console: Game streaming must be enabled in Settings. • Windows 10 PC: You must be signed in to the Xbox app with the same gamertag as on the Xbox One console. • Network connectivity: The Windows 10 PC and the Xbox One console must be on the same home network. Enable settings on your Xbox One To use Xbox game streaming, you must first enable game streaming from your Xbox One.
To do this, press the Xbox button to open the guide, select Settings > Preferences > Xbox app connections. Do these two things: • Under This Xbox, enable Allow game streaming to other devices. • Under Other devices, enable Allow connections from any device or Only from profiles signed in on this Xbox. Connect your Windows 10 PC to your Xbox One After ensuring that your console settings are correct, you need to establish a connection from your Windows 10 PC to your Xbox One console from within the Xbox app on your PC: • On your PC, launch the Xbox app. • Select Connect from the panel on the left side.
• The Xbox app will scan your home network for available Xbox One consoles. Select the name of the console you want to connect to. Note All Xbox One consoles are pre-named 'MyXboxOne.'
