    Though yesterday's announcement of the PC version of Halo: The Master Chief Collection stole the show in terms of Microsoft news, that wasn't all that the company had up its sleeve in terms of new things that they're bringing to the table. After being beta tested in private for quite a while, Microsoft has officially updated their Wireless Display app to allow players to stream their PC games to their Xbox One systems. Similar in function to Steam's Big Picture Mode, you can remotely play your PC games on your TV by beaming it to the Xbox. Any games can be streamed, be it from the Epic, Steam, or even the Windows Games Store, with the only limit being on media streaming content, such as Netflix or Hulu, which shouldn't be an issue, as both services have native Xbox One apps. The update is now live, and can be downloaded off the Microsoft Store.

    What happens when you try? If you want help, you need to be more specific.

    I was hoping for this to be a thing! Does it work with emulators? Maybe retroarch? I could never connect to the console in dev mode, that might be the next best thing.

    I tried wireless display between 2 same model laptops and the lag was unbearable. It was like remote desktop on a gprs connection despite the wifi beeing 866Mbit strong. (Wireless display creates an adhoc connection between devices through a virtual wifi adapter). I can't see to play games with this if even excel works like shit.

    I'm finding more compelling reasons to pick up an XBOX lately. I just started using In-House Streaming with Steam, and while it works well (I can play FFXV on High settings over wireless with no stuttering/lag) it seems to be lacking in functionality, and I'm still hitting some issues in extended play sessions.

    I'm betting Microsoft will have much better support for this, so after some comparison reviews come out I may actually be picking up a unit.

    Oh, good. You can use the command Super L + P to extend, or if it makes more sense, Windows key + P. P for project.

    Stupid question, but wouldn't these things introduce a crapload of lag?

    I have a 250 mbps connection, but I still don't trust it to stream from a PC to TV.

    Not feasible with my setup. PC is one room upstairs, consoles are downstairs, and yeah, not worth the hassle.

    If you're talking input lag, you're going to have that no matter what. It's just unavoidable. As for jitter or stutter? I haven't had that issue for a while. Hardwired or wireless. Gonna have to give this a try tonight or something.

    I don't have an Xbox One X at all, but I've tried similar things on my previously owned Shield Tablet and didn't even work that well.

    Worthless. Just hook your PC up to your tv. About as brilliant as the stream to mobile announcement. PS4 has that feature like 5 years ago.
