    Windows 10 on Xbox One and why it goes beyond gaming


    Last week Microsoft presented to the world a unified ecosystem from the television down to a smartphone with Windows 10. We knew this was coming, hence the name change to Windows Central and our expanding Xbox coverage.

    With Microsoft's unification, they revealed that the Xbox One is a part of their long-term vision, and the Xbox brand will stay in Seattle despite continuous rumors of it being spun off. So, for those of you that tend to ignore Xbox news, I'm here to show why you shouldn't automatically dismiss and instead embrace it.

    Xbox on Windows 10

    The Xbox app on Windows 10 is nothing like the current SmartGlass app we have on Windows 8.1. The current app almost acts as a companion to your Xbox One, as where the upcoming Xbox app gives you and Xbox experience on your PC. However, the new app does take all of the old features of SmartGlass and improves upon them. Remotely downloading games and apps, watching your friend's clips, and controlling your Xbox are all still there.

    This is why it should be of no surprise to learn that the Xbox app will supplant SmartGlass for users on Windows 10.

    But this new app is intended for more than that. Via the app, you can now voice chat with your friends from your PC or tablet to any friend on their Xbox One. This ability means that no matter where you are, you can chat with any of your Xbox Live friends to discuss game strategies or just talk about the latest football scores (Go Seahawks!). However, Microsoft didn't stop here.

    That's what's so amazing about Windows 10, it's the realization of many years of hard work, struggle, and perseverance coming together.
