Xbox One users will have to wait a little bit longer to access to Windows 10 on their game consoles. Microsoft recently confirmed that the OS will roll out to Xbox gamers in November. The new operating system officially launched last week, and it includes many notable features including the new Edge browser and the Cortana personal assistant.
What to expect from Windows 10 for Xbox One
Microsoft first unveiled the new Windows 10 for Xbox One dashboard during the E3. The updated dashboard boasts new features focusing on simplicity, speed, and performance. Highlights include Cortana integration, multi-device streaming capabilities, social sharing features, chat features, incredible DirectX 12 graphics, and more.
Windows 10 allows users to stream games from their Xbox One game consoles to other devices including desktops, laptops and tablets. It also allows gamers to pick up their gaming adventures from one device to another. People can start a game on the Xbox One in the living room and then finish the game on a Windows tablet in the kitchen later. There is also a multiplayer option for gamers on Xbox and Windows 10 computers.
An exciting future for Xbox One
Xbox leader Phil Spencer summed up the appeal during the E3, “Over the last 13 years, Xbox has been focused on creating and expanding great gaming and entertainment experiences on console. We’re incredibly proud of the Xbox One and are fully committed to ensuring it’s the best place to play console games in 2015 and beyond. Now, we are also bringing that same focus, passion, and commitment to gaming on Windows 10, enhancing the PC games and gaming devices you already love, including the Xbox One. We’ve listened and learned from our past efforts in PC gaming and I am excited about what the future holds.”
The Xbox gaming experience has always been social, but the Xbox Windows 10 experience brings everything together thanks to a unified platform with games, friends and game-related activities. It is designed to connect gamers to the entire Xbox community.
