Microsoft’s new Wireless Display app brings PC streaming to Xbox One

Microsoft's Translucent Xbox Controller Is Now Available in White

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.

Over the last several years, there has been a big push from consumers and hardware creators to enable the consumption of digital content across a variety of devices.

Thanks to a new update for Microsoft's old "Connect on Windows" application, it's now possible for PC gamers to wirelessly cast their entire game library (yes, that includes Steam) to an Xbox One console connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

How does it all work? Once the two devices are synced, you can control your PC with an Xbox One controller too.

Are you primarily a PC/Xbox One gamer, who sometimes has a hankering to play your computer games on your TV from the comfort of your couch?

The new Wireless Display app features the choice of full controller use, remotely controlling your desktop, laptop, or tablet with an on-screen thumbstick-controlled cursor.

The new additions on Xbox One include Beholder 2, CrossCode, Dead Static Drive, Door Kickers: Action Squad, Mowin' & Throwin', Starcrossed, and Totem Teller.

Granted, the regular Xbox One controller is not on the same level as the Elite, which is one of the best controllers for PC gaming. Also, the app does not support mouse and keyboard input at the moment, so you'll be limited to games that have controller support.
