You can now stream PC games to an Xbox One

Microsoft's Wireless Display app lets you wirelessly project your Windows or Android based devices to your Xbox One.

Last year, Microsoft introduced an interesting Xbox One Wireless Controller - the Phantom Black Special Edition controller with a translucent finish in black. Indeed, the updated Game Bar can now show you how much battery you have left in your Xbox One controller, just like it works on the console.

You can also use it share clips, pictures, and project websites from your Android device or PC. There are some limitations - paid content like Netflix can't be streamed, and the keyboard and mouse controls aren't supported.

Microsoft continues to break down the barriers between consoles and PCs, now allowing you to play games you might have on your PC via an Xbox One in a rather nifty way. There's a 3.5mm audio headphone jack for directly connecting a wired headset, Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, and support for custom button mapping via the Xbox Accessories companion app. This experience has already been available on the Surface Hub and Windows, but this is the first time that Xbox users will be able to get a piece of the action.
