New Xbox Wireless Display app brings PC streaming to Xbox One

New Xbox Wireless Display app brings PC streaming to Xbox One

The previously leaked white version of the Xbox Phantom controller was made official this evening during Microsoft's Inside Xbox livestream. Using the Miracast connection standard, the Wireless Display app can mirror your PC's output to the Xbox One console over your local home network. The Phantom Black Special Edition controller debuted in September.

This special edition controller blends "luxury and Sci-Fi", according to Microsoft, emphasizing the hidden technology with a shell that fades to transparency. At the top, the gadget boasts a high-tech translucent white hue with gold components underneath, transitioning to an opaque matte white below. It's all rounded out by textured grips.

If that's not interesting enough for you, Microsoft could even be working on a way to let users play Xbox-exclusive games on PC.


The new Wireless Display app features the choice of full controller use, remotely controlling your desktop, laptop, or tablet with an on-screen thumbstick-controlled cursor. Of course, you can stream more than just games to your Xbox One - presentations, videos, and other stuff can be cast to your console, as well.

The new controller will be available worldwide on April 2 for only $69.99, and you can pre-order one right now.
