Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs is now available for everyone

And Xbox One players can chat with friends on PC, too

The impending arrival of Windows 10 is bringing a bunch of welcome new features for Xbox One players. Xbox's Larry Hryb said in a blog post today that an update rolling out over the next few days will bring players the ability to play Xbox One games on their Windows 10 PCs and tablets by streaming them over their home networks. The feature, which was announced in January, lets players bring games to other rooms of their house without having to move their console. It was previously made available to about 5 million testers of Windows 10.

The update also brings new features for the Windows 10 Xbox app, including a "party chat" mode that lets you talk to Xbox One players via your PC, and vice versa. The chat can take place inside a game or out of it depending on your mood.

Other updates include a redesigned Home feed, additional ways to customize your avatar, and new options for sharing locally stored game clips with your friends. For the full account, check out Microsoft's blog post.
