Streaming Xbox One games to PC while you watch TV on the console through the HDMI pass-through is something Microsoft is hoping to achieve when the service launches with Windows 10.


Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has been on Twitter answering fan questions following last week’s Windows 10 event. One interesting bit that came out of those conversations is the fact that the firm’s goal is to allow games streaming from Xbox One to PC while the TV is being watched through the console’s HDMI-In port.

Here’s Phil Spencer’s tweet.

A bit more details are expected to be revealed soon when the Windows 10 preview build goes live and we take a look at the Xbox app.
