Microsoft has been supporting its flagship console with new features and it seems that the company will soon add Xbox One Remote Play with an upcoming update which will allow users to play Xbox game on PC.
Microsoft recently rolled out a new update to the Insider Program which also adds the Xbox One Remote Play. While this is not a new idea but, this is the first time Microsoft has introduced such feature to Xbox One.
Xbox One Remote Play works with Mixer, which is Xbox’s streaming service, which lets a PC user take control of the Xbox One who is watching through Mixer.com on PC. Using this, Streamers will be able to let other players take control of their games via a controller.
In related news, Microsoft has been adding more and more games to backward compatibility list and the company has revealed that gamers have spent over 840 million hours playing Xbox one backward compatible games.
The community has played more than 840 million hours of Xbox 360 games on Xbox One. Compatibility is important to Xbox, to developers and their games, and our community. Preserving the art form of video games is part of our DNA, which is why Xbox One is the only console designed to play the best games of the past, present and future.
Furthermore, the company has noted that it won’t block mouse and keyboard for Xbox One. According to the company, the reason why they don’t block is that the company has always wanted the developers to have the freedom in the way they want to develop their games.
According to Microsoft, the use of mouse and keyboard on the Xbox One can be helpful for the players with accessibility issues.
