Windows 10 Preview members have been able to try out all the new features of the upcoming OS before everyone else. Earlier this month at E3, Microsoft announced the ability to stream your games from an Xbox One to any PC on your home network running Windows 10. Today the company is extending the list of features available to try.
The Xbox on Windows 10 app will soon feature the My Games list. Games purchased in the Windows Store will automatically appear in My Games. Microsoft said that it will be easy to add other games by selecting MY Games > Add A Game from your PC. You'll be able to launch games from this central location. You'll see a most recently played list, and directly below that, Microsoft has added a Featured Games list, suggesting popular games from the Windows Store.
Game Hubs allow you to launch games, go to the store page, access information about specific games, and even find and follow gamers to watch. Additionally, an option to "play from console" has been added to start up game streaming sessions from an Xbox One console.
When the Preview release comes out, you'll be able to share your achievements and Xbox One game clips and screenshots to your activity feed and Showcase, just as it currently works on Xbox One. The Avatars app has now been renamed Xbox Avatars, and the layout is now on its final design. The final product features a photo shoot for your avatar, where you can pose in different ways and even interact with props for a unique profile shot.
For those who don't have an Xbox account yet, you can now log in to the Xbox on Windows 10 app with any account and create a new account from within the application. You'll need Windows 10 Preview build 10158 in order to access the new features. Once installed, the Xbox on Windows 10 app should update automatically. Microsoft said the version number must be 6.6.27004.00000 or higher to unlock the new features.
