If you are in the US UU. Or the UK, the feature is now available in the latest preliminary versions of Xbox One for Preview Alpha and Skip Ahead Insiders.
"Console Streaming is our new Xbox One platform feature that allows you to stream installed Xbox One games (including Xbox Game Pass titles) to your phone or tablet directly from the Xbox One you already own," Brad Rossetti explained, Xbox Insider team leader. To use this function, you must ensure that your home's Internet connection passes the test, and ideally that means meeting the following criteria:
- A cable connection
- An open NAT type
- A speed of 9 Mbps or faster load,
- A latency of less than 60 ms
Your console must also be set to Instant On to allow your phone or tablet to access it remotely, and you will also need to have an Xbox Wireless Bluetooth Controller with the latest firmware installed. Once you have installed the latest 1911 or 2004 preview versions for Xbox One, the Xbox Dashboard Streaming Availability Test will be available in Settings -> Network Settings -> Console Transmission Test.
"We are looking forward to sharing more about Console Streaming (Preview) and what to expect in the coming weeks," Rossetti said. It is still unclear when the feature will generally be available, but its availability in the last preliminary version of 1911 suggests that it could be November at the earliest.
