Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 10 will be released on July 29th, but two weeks before its final release all Xbox One owners who are members of Microsoft's Insider Program will be able to stream their games on Windows 10 computers by using the Xbox One streaming feature. This functionality was unveiled earlier this year, more precisely in January, and since its announcement there was a lot of discussion about it. The feature was first enabled to users of Xbox One preview program, but it now made its way to everyone using Windows 10 Technical Preview.

Xbox's Larry Hryb announced the ability to stream Xbox One games to Windows 10 computers in a blog post he posted yesterday.

This update will roll out to all users who own both Xbox One and personal computers running Windows 10 Technical Preview

While you're streaming your Xbox One games to Windows 10, you'll get a notification which tells you that streaming has begun. Also, you probably already know that you you'll be able to stream games only within your home by pairing two devices with a local network, and Microsoft didn't say if it will be changed in the future.

In addition to introduction of this highly anticipated feature, Microsoft presented a few other new features and improvement for its Xbox app. This includes the ability to create parties (users of both Xbox One and Xbox app on Windows 10 will be able to join the party), upload game content, like screenshots or game clips, and to create an Xbox One profile for users who still don't have one.

The final version of Microsoft's new operating system will be released later this month (it has already been released to manufacturers last week) and it will be available as a free upgrade for all Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 users for the first year of its availability. Releasing game streaming feature to Insiders while Windows 10 is still in its developing phase is a very good way to promote the feature and convince users to use it from day one.

This innovative feature will also help Microsoft to promote the console itself.
