Today Microsoft announced it's plan to bring PC and Xbox closer together with it's newest operating system and a new Xbox App.

The app will allow players to stream games back and forth between their Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. Though originally only allowing Xbox One games to be played on PC, the games bought on PC will eventually be able to be played on Xbox One as well.

Players friends list, activity feed and messages will also be accessible, allowing players to keep up to date regardless of which device they are on. On top of that, the app will also feature a DVR function that will allow players to record the last 30 seconds of gameplay of any game they are playing on the Windows 10 PC, including Steam titles. These clips can then be edited and shared across various social networks.

It sounds like Microsoft is starting to bring together PC and console gaming in a good way. For more news on Microsoft, Xbox One and gaming news today, stay tuned to The Jesters Court.
