Microsoft has not revealed any official plans yet, but said that they are very much interested in introducing PC to Xbox One game streaming.

Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, mentioned some of the issues in an interview with The Verge. These issues included keyboard and mouse support on Xbox One and the diverse range of hardware on PC:

“It’s actually a little more challenging doing the encoding on the PC side to the Xbox, but challenge is good,”

Streaming from Windows 10 to Xbox One has been one of the hallmark features of the operation system. It was a major part of the keynote presentation given in January, and fans of Xbox and PC gaming alike have been looking for a way to stream back and forth between their systems:

“People ask about the streaming in the opposite direction–can I stream from my PC to my Xbox?–and I’ll just say it’s something that we’re really looking at,” Spencer said back in January. “If you think about that vision–my games are my games wherever I am, and I can play with whoever I want to play with–we want to be able to land solutions that are as native as the one we showed there. We just have to kind of work with the physics of time and work it through.”

Without an official timescale though, it remains uncertain if this implementation will arrive in the next few weeks, months, years or even at all.
