How To Stream Xbox one games on Windows 10
With the ongoing push from Microsoft to get Windows 10 into as many homes as possible, it turns out the Xbox One is considered an active Windows device.
Speaking at this year’s Citi Global Technology Conference (via DualShockers), chief marketing officer Chris Capossela explained the following
“Success for us, we’ve said with Windows 10, in two years we want to have a billion Windows 10 active devices, connected to Windows 10, using Windows 10 on a regular basis,”
“That gives you a little bit of a sense that for us, of course we care about revenue, profit, share, but we also care about usage. Fundamentally, we have to be more focused on how many people are using our stuff every day, and how happy they are using our stuff. And if we get a lot of very happy people, then the revenue, the profit, the share, we think that will follow, we think lots of good things will happen.
“So a core power metric for us is Windows 10 devices. That’s not a PC statement. That will be phones, that will be tablets, that will be laptops, that will be desktops, that will be big surface hubs, that will be Xboxes. Xboxes today run Windows, and so every time we sell an Xbox we’re actually creating a Windows active device that hopefully people [will] love it, it’s their gaming device, in their living room. It is not a separate animal. It is literally a Windows device.”
Shipping Windows 10 into one-billion homes mirrors the comments by Microsoft’s VP of operating systems Terry Myerson from April earlier this year.
