Update...I can't do video miracasting either (only tried home movies). That sucks. Not a problem with a normal miracast connected receiver so this should be fixed for the final release hopefully.

That's pretty cool. I've tried to use Miracast with my HTC One and Roku 3. It works, but didn't do landscape mode so it was kind of useless. Hopefully that was an issue with the Roku and not the phone.

I've never heard of Miracast before now. I have an iPad, but from what I've read, it's a no go on connecting to the Xbox unless I have Apple TV, which I do not.

I also have a Windows phone, it's a Lumina 635, but I can't figure out how to get it connected to the Xbox. Does anyone know if it's even possible yet?

You need Windows Phone 8.1 with the Cyan firmware or the Denim firmware.

Android 4.2 or higher works, as well...just tried it on my son's Asus Tablet. It was a bit klunky. The tablet told me I could not run WiFi, and Miracast at the same time. I had to actually go in to WiFi connections, choose the Xbox One, sign in with the same password as my WiFi, go back to the Miracast screen, and connect. I can tell you the audio sucked. And he could not play Madden from the tablet...it stated he needed a WiFi connection, which of course, was disabled due to the Miracast.

Not really sure I see the application of this feature.

Tried Miracast on my HTC One last night and it worked perfectly. I guess the trouble I was having with it on Roku 3 was specific to that device. It did say it was still in beta.

I tried out the Miracast last night with my LG G3 and the X1. It worked fine for static content (pictures and such), but it wasn't usable for video. There was a lot of lag and the audio was terrible.

The Verge had a hands-on with the game streaming on the Xbox One:

http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/30/85...ing-windows-10

Streaming Xbox One games to a Windows 10 PC is awesome

excerpts:

At its Build developers conference in San Francisco this week, Microsoft is demonstrating Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs to the public for the first time. I got a chance to try it, and it's as awesome as I had hoped.

It all starts with an Xbox One controller and the Xbox app for Windows 10. You can plug Xbox One controllers into Windows 10 PCs, and the Xbox app will automatically install the drivers and then you're ready to stream games. Titles will stream locally over a network, but you won't be able to go on vacation and access your game collection from a hotel. There are ways around that by setting up VPN connections at home, but for now it's designed to work over the local network, and the streaming is optimized for that experience.

Launching games is simple from the Xbox app for Windows 10, you just select the title you want to play and there's a new streaming option at the top. This isn't just streaming, though. You can even access the entire Xbox One dashboard, and launch apps like party, friends, achievements, and more. It all seemed to work without much lag in Microsoft's demo, but we'll have to take a look at it more closely in home environments to really judge it fully.

One of the disappointing aspects to this game streaming is that it's a little limited. I had hoped Microsoft would allow the Xbox One to continue outputting TV, or run apps like Netflix, all while someone remotely plays an Xbox One game. That's not the case, and it's literally just mirroring the whole experience as a video stream to a Windows 10 PC. That means if you're living the dream of Xbox One as an entertainment and games console in the living room, then streaming games will take over that experience. Microsoft says it's investigating having TV work while you stream a game remotely, but the initial release won't support that.

Microsoft is planning to enable game streaming for Windows 10 testers very soon, so expect to see this arrive in the coming weeks as part of the company's regular Windows 10 updates.

Communication as you can send messages from the One to Windows 10? The goal is to have voice, and text messaging between all devices.

Sorry,...I meant Game and Party chats. If I'm streaming to a W10 PC...and unable to talk to my party, because my controller is linked to the PC...that would severely hamper the feature, in my eyes.

That should run directly through the PC. I don't think PC voice chat is in there yet but eventually anything you can do on an xbox you should be able to do on PC.

Will there be streaming PC games to the Xbox One? I think that would be even more useful.

One potential area though that I can think of immediately where XB1 game streaming to a PC could be beneficial if it's not too laggy, are for racing enthusiast that like to use a steering wheel setup. Much easier to do such a thing from a proper desk, rather than from your couch.

Sadly though, it's not going to be quite as convenient as it could've been for that specialized use, since I believe all current wheel accessories for the XB1 are wired (Unlike the last time out with the 360 where nothing physically connected to the console itself).

Edit: Or is it an issue? If the PC is passing your controller inputs through, I hope they don't forget to support wired USB XB1 accessories from your PC.

They said that going forward *all* xbox one accessories will work on PC. They are staggering the Windows 10 release across form factors though, and it looks like the xbox is going to be lagging behind PC and phone, so it'll still be quite some time before all this stuff comes together.

I guess I just don't understand the use case for streaming xbox games to your pc. I can understand streaming from windows 10 to xbox one, because you're xbox is probably connected to your big tv, but why would I want to play my xbox games on my pc?

BTW, I'm assuming that you have to be on your home network. I could understand it if I could play my xbox games on my laptop while away from home.

Cross platform though, that's another story.

I agree with you here. Let me play while on the road and I'll be excited. Tell me I can play on my surface instead of my 65 inch TV and I don't care. Not interested in this just yet.

One of the greatest posts I have read

In my case, it offers me another display to casually game on. I don't have the extra cash to buy another Xbox One, and my current console is attached to my projector for it's main display. While I do have the signal split to my bedroom display...the poor excuse for a controller, this gen, has me tied to the theater room for all my gaming. It's fine for nights that I plan to be on for a while, but short hops are a no go. So, I am looking forward to this feature...

I doubt anyone with a desktop gaming PC would use it, it's mostly intended for laptops and tablets. One of those cheap Intel compute sticks or probably even a raspberry Pi could handle this, so it should make it cheap and easy to extend your Xbox to virtually any screen in your house. The use case for PC to Xbox is seems limited to me because it's absolute overkill for that...why buy a $300 Xbox when a $30-$100 mini PC can do it just as well? I can't imagine there's that many people out there with high end rigs and Xbox ones.

For those that are upset about the death of WMC, looks like DVR functionality maybe in the works for the Xbox one:

That was the only next logical step after adding the OTA Tuner.

Yup. Probably way later this year though, in the form of a win 10 universal app. Kills two birds with one stone, replaces WMC on PC, adds DVR to Xbox. And since its universal, I bet you'll be able to open the app it on any win 10 phone, tablet or laptop and watch/schedule DVR, maybe even live TV.

I am not sure this has been confirmed, but a reddit user says the frame rate for Game DVR clips has been upped to 60 frames/s if you are preview member.

Edit I guess this has been confirmed.

OTA support will not help me, but providing a solution for DVR recording may be a way to establish a platform Universal Apps can use.
