Join gaming leaders online at GamesBeat Summit Next this upcoming November 9-10. Learn more about what comes next. 


Windows 10 is launches tomorrow (our early impressions), and it’s going to bring a bunch of Xbox gaming features to Microsoft’s biggest product.

The Xbox app in Windows 10 is about to unleash a plethora of new gaming capabilities for PC players. These include GameDVR, cross-device play, and streaming of Xbox One games to a local PC or Windows 10 tablet. It’s a lot of new integrations that should make playing games on your PC feel more active and alive.

It’s one thing for us to tell you about it, but you’ll get to try it all out soon for free if you use your upgrade from Windows 7 or 8. And if you can’t wait that long, check the video below to see Microsoft run through a demonstration of the new features:
