When Microsoft announced Xbox One game streaming on Windows 10, many wondered if people would really use it. Among them was Xbox and Windows Platform Director of Program Management Mike Ybarra that revealed today in an interview on The Inner Circle‘s podcast that the feature is actually very popular.
Game streaming is a really popular feature. I gotta be honest, when we created that, I was like, “how many people would really do this?” but it was huge, like people wanna be able to play their Xbox games on their PCs and devices and anywhere the’re at. So it was nice to see that the usage of that is very high.
Personally, I definitely see the value of the feature. My main PC is side by side with my Xbox One, so it doesn’t see much streaming, but I did play quite a bit on my laptop.
It’ll be interesting to see how Microsoft will expand game streaming, but the tech is definitely a nice addition to the Xbox App on Windows 10.
