Miracast Support For Xbox One Coming in New Update
We have some great news for Xbox One users across the globe. Microsoft is planning to add Miracast support to the console via the next system software update. For now, the Xbox One only has the ability to stream individual files from a Windows PC, but after the update rolls out things will change.
Xbox One owners with Windows Phone or an Android device will be able to cast videos and photos directly to the console from the device, or mirror the screen.
Miracast is being enabled as part of an update from Xbox One’s Smartglass Preview app.
Apart from adding support for Miracast, Microsoft is improving the Xbox preview app on Windows 10. Users will be able to take screenshots and capture game clips more easily.
Live TV streaming will also enter preview and will allow users to stream content to mobile devices if they own a digital TV Tuner.
Microsoft is yet to add support for game streaming to Xbox app on Windows 10. A new feature was seen on the Xbox One dashboard earlier this month to enable it, however, the new preview version of the Xbox app on Windows 10 doesn’t have streaming support yet.
