It’s systems go for many things at Microsoft now as we approach July 29, the launch date for Windows 10 for PCs and tablets. Last week, we saw the final build seeded to Insiders; Office Mobile universal apps becoming generally available on Windows Store; and pre-orders for Windows 10 on USB flash drives opening up on Amazon.

Now, another feature that has shed its preview status is streaming of games from an Xbox One to a Windows 10 PC or tablet. In short, you can now play your Xbox One games on your Windows 10 devices when you’re not in front of your console.

Here’s how you enable game streaming from Xbox One, courtesy of Xbox Wire:

To get started, on your Xbox One console, go to Settings > Preferences > Allow game streaming to other devices and then install the latest version of the Xbox app on your Windows 10 PC or tablet.

In the Xbox app on Windows 10, select Connect > + Add a device from the menu on the left side of the app, then select your Xbox One console. Attach a wired Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller to your Windows 10 PC or tablet. Then, go to Home > Recently Played to select an Xbox One game and then select Play from Console to start your streaming session. Another way to do this is to simply select your Xbox One console under Home > Game Streaming in the Xbox app to take full control of your Xbox One console from your Windows 10 PC. A notification will appear on your Xbox One that a game streaming session was started by a specific user. During game streaming, the Xbox One console will appear “in use” as though the person streaming was in the room.

The July release of the Xbox app for Windows 10 also includes a ton of new features for you to access your gaming world and connect with your friends and the Xbox Live community. Click on the source link below to find out more.
