Here's how the new Xbox One Wireless app works in letting you stream mobile games and more on your Xbox One.
That is pretty cool
Yeah, some games, I'm never gonna play them just on the smartphone anymore lol. Especially warhammer 40k carnage. It's SO much better on a big screen.
as long as you have an iPhone you can get an Apple TV and do this for $70 or for $35 dollars with chrome cast and enables apps Sorry according to my disagrees you can't. Lol I'm so silly, should have known
Brotard, I'm not saying this is are earth shattering new feature but you are totally missing the point, there are so many other devices you could buy to do things that the X1 does, last gen folks bought video capture cards to record gameplay, this gen its really nice to have features like that built in or updated for more options. This is a cool addition to many more options that X1 has and I don't have a iPhone but I even if I did it's NOT going to also let me play the HaloMCC in 5 mins after I'm done casting from it to my X1.
i have been putting off upgrading my S2 for a while now. this is giving me more incentive to get an S4 or S5. unless there are certain phone restrictions.....?
@darthv72 - The S4 doesn't work from what I read. KNOWN ISSUES Projection of premium content is not supported. Projecting from apps like Netflix or Hulu+ will be blocked by your device as this is protected content. Devices that enable HDCP protection at all times will not be able to project. like: Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Note 2 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra. In some instances you may need to remove your Console from your device’s display list in order to reconnect. iOS devices do not support Miracast. Source- http://www.dualshockers.com...
it's pretty good in the sense any device running windows 10 can be used to stream along with android phones. that's a hell of a lot of devices out there. rumor has it nintendo's new system will be a cross breed of mobile and console in one package. something like this i imagine where you can go one step further than what was advertised on the wii u of not needing a tv to continue playing.
@onehandband1t - not sure what you mean, i just sent hulu and netflix from my nexus 7 to my xbox one via miracast - in fact the movie Noah streamed really fast from netflix and the quality was excellent.
@brotard so lets see use this app for free on my x1 or go buy a apple phone and apple tv so that I can pay 35 bucks to use chromecast and do the same things. Hmmm I wonder what I will choose to do.
You can do this on a $30 chromecast. I find that its not great for games but cool for pics and videos. Does this do more than games? Screen mirroring?
Cool makes sense that it can also be done on the xbox one. Connecting a chromecast to your xb1 has now become less usefull I guess
My Sony TVs support Miracast without any addons.
@high Except, you are completely wrong. Mirroring requires miracast, chromecast is completely different. Also, the quality with this new app is much better than chromecast. (to my surprise)Sadly uninformed comments (such as yours) mad in an attempt to downplay a pretty cool feature is upvoted regardless of accuracy. You have proven 2 things: 1. You don't own a chromecast. 2. Even if you were correct (you aren't) Are you saying that you would rather spend an addition $30 to have this ability? Rather than it being a built-in feature? That all aside, you certainly cannot mirror your PC's display with a chromecast, (not just browser) or really much any low cost medium. This app does that as well. It is simply a small little addition that is cool to see, sad that you and brotard seem so upset about it....
i can play ANYthing on my phone to my tv cause my phone has an hdmi output. (people and iphones, when will they learn) ;P
@nicksetzer1 You can indeed mirror your PC screen with chromecast @optimus Yup, HDMI is the most reliable option of all, it always works. I've used it many times when traveling to stream movies to the TV in my hotel room from my phone or tablet. And LOL at the disagrees to my previous comment. Does it really pain you that much that the high end Sony TVs support Miracast out of the box? Edit: It seems I was wrong, Miracast is available on more than just the high end Sony TVs, there are dozens of models listed including low end TVs. http://www.wi-fi.org/produc... There are over 2500 TVs listed as supporting Miracast, so if you bought a TV in the last couple of years then you probably don't need an XBox one to use this feature.
Yes, you could do this with a chromecast. However, chromecast is terribly laggy when it comes to mirroring anything that requires any user interaction (games/desktop..etc). It's fine for casting videos or photos but anything else it sucks. I have a chromecast and I have never in my life ever had a buyer's remorse on a $30 product yet the chromecast feels like a waste of money because of its terrible performance not to mention that its proprietary protocols require a chrome extension/app so you could even cast to it unlike most other devices which support DLNA or miracast.
@nick I hate when people try to correct someone but they are the ones that are actually wrong. Look it up. I have an xperia z3 and can mirror my screen on chromecast can also do it on my note 4 so don't know what the hell you are taking about think you are the one without a chromecast. Straight from Google. https://support.google.com/... So sadly you are the miss informed. Apparently you were up voted even though you are wrong. Please don't comment if you don't know what your talking about.
Wait so I can play my cell games on my big tv? Whaaaa? O man better not let my wife know about this. Shhhhhhh
The problem with screen mirror touch device games is you still have to look down at the screen to see where to tap since there is no tactile feedback telling you where your finger is!
use proximity detection. Basically if the screen is mirroring your device and you see where a move needs to be made you make it without looking at the mobile device. eventually you will be able to play without looking down just like learning to type on a keyboard without looking at your fingers. you will just....naturally do it with some practice.
you can also just attach a controller to the phone. It works with a lot of games.
Well my windows phone has a tactile to show where finger is
this is probably also why the touch pad on DS4 have seen so little use... Edit: The tester keeps repeating that the best way to play should be by connecting a controller to your phone, wow... Showing your own photos & films from the phone could actually be useful!
Google chromecast has done this for years now. Its nothing new..
And yet the ps4 still does not do it :/ strange
Might try hearthstone on this . Prolly my best mobile game
Pocket Gods, Order and Chaos, and Samurai 2 here i come!!!!
Very cool, but this only works with windows and android devices right? Hopefully we get some IOS support.
I think the main question is, does iOS support Miracast? If it does, no doubt it would come. But my understanding is Apple uses their own proprietary casting tech and dont support Miracast (unless that has changed)
I just looked it up and yeah, you're right. Apple doesn't support it. :/
You want it get a chromecast then that does this and has iphone support. Also it has limited support. Not all handsets will work with this thanks to the technology needed to cast and actual android version.
There's your main problem right there... Apple Crap... Maybe if you saw iphones for what they really are, (overpriced, restrictive, and yes, somewhat reliable pieces of crap) you wouldn't need to wait for anything... Emulators, gaming options, user customization and overall versatility are just a few reasons why any power user or gamer should never own an iphone... aside frome the few games or apps that are apple exclusive, there is really no reason to buy one. That, and you get to keep your soul.. (;
I really thought androids would be better, so I did switched and bought a Samsung Galaxy and had it for 2 years and to be honest android is a pretty crappy OS. I won't buy another until they make some changes. For now I'll stick with my iPhones.
Ok, playing my smart phone games on the big screen isn't exactly a "big thing"...but I will say this. I was a bit taken back by how good the miracast did with the Xbox One. The phone screen on the big screen looked identical in terms of quality. Text all looked clean as did all images. I played a few simple games, watched a home video shot with phone and even used my camera on phone to snap a pic and show on the big screen while i did it. Ultimately I think this will be a nice feature but not a ground breaking one.
Wish it worked with iOS
Upgrade to Android!!!
I second this statement. Android and PC are for core users, apple or IOS products are for casuals. Not only that, you get to appear intelligent when you stop buying the "hip" P.O.S.'s apple keeps selling.
???? Completely useless
Trying to understand... Mobile (game) > XBox One > TV PS4 > TV PS4 > Mobile This could also be expressed as PS4 > Mobile > XBox One > TV ;)
So, a posting about a new capability on the X1 results in a comparison with the PS4 which does not have feature the same capability...yet the PS4 still wins. Wow.
So 12 people did not get the mathematical joke even with the final ;) Well, anyway... wonder if you could actually stream your PS4 to your mobile that streams it to your XBox One that shows it on your TV...
So many people failing to see that he means you can play the PS4'a remote play via an Xbox one with his last map.
This would be fantastic if you could then pick up an X1 controller to play the game. Now, give me streaming the other way so I can use my tablet screen as a display for the X1 so I can play games whilst everyone else watches TV.
^^^This. I don't like 99% of mobile games, can't remember the last time I played one for more than 5 minutes but I sure as hell can't wait to stream X1 games to my tablet while using X1 controllers with it anywhere in the house.
see i thought that is what this was going to do. Let you use your tablet or smart phone as a 2nd screen to play xb1 games on. Like the wiiu gamepad can do. that way you are playing the game while others are watching tv. but this is very cool to do also. Perhaps the streaming to the device will come later...? either way this is really neat. I just need to look into what the minimum specs are required for a mobile device to work with it.
@darthv72 I think this is a first step in that direction to be honest. We know with Windows 10 you will be able to play your xbox one games on your Windows 10 device screen so its coming. Miracast is opening the door to Android devices. Bottom line this is all is focusing around the Wifi Direct capability the Xbox One has built in. The key is there ability to minimalism any kind of lag or deterioration of audio/picture quality.
they are doing this the xbox app thats coming to windows 10 lets you stream games from x1 to your laptop
I wonder if my kindle fire HDX will work
nice i can stream football on my xbox now
I tried on my Lenovo 2and1 but it doesn't show up? I think it's because I have to much going on my router,will try again tonight to see if that was the problem.
Also you can screencast your phone thru chromecast it's just only few phones that can support it.my phone can screencast my using chromecast.
moto g 4g phone isnt picking up the xbox to cast to keeps saying no devices found.
I'am sorry but what the point in that? Fun the first 5 minutes and what?
Gonna try this with my Shield tablet since I don't have a mini hdmi. Full screen emulators and Grid, let's go.
Lol, sony fanboys trying to down play this.
