How to play any Xbox Game on Windows 10 PC

The launch of Xbox Play Anywhere had made sure that one can play Xbox Games on Windows 10 PC as well. This means that games that are part of Play Anywhere program can only be played on Windows 10 PC and Xbox. Since the games are built for both the platforms, and game progress syncs online, anytime you resume back on any of the gaming platforms, it works seamlessly. That said, in this post, we are discussing how you can play Xbox Games on Windows 10 PC.

Play any Xbox Games on Windows PC

There are two ways to play Xbox Games on Windows 10 PC. Either you can stream from console to PC or you can play it using Xbox Play Anywhere Program. While former works with any game, the later depends on the game.

Playing ANY Xbox Game on Windows 10

The Xbox Console can stream games on to Windows 10 PC. This works via the Xbox App installed on the PC which uses the same Microsoft account on both the PC and the Xbox console.  To make sure this delivers the best experience, you need to make sure they are on the same network, and you have a router that can handle streaming properly. While Xbox App will automatically adjust the streaming quality, you can manually change it even beyond high-quality settings.

This comes in handy if your TV is busy, and your console is nearby your PC. The controller stays connected with Xbox One, while your PC acts only as a streaming device.

Playing Xbox Games on Windows 10 PC with Play Anywhere

Gears of War 4 is an Xbox Play Anywhere compatible game. This means you can play it both on the PC and the Xbox One. Follow the steps to play it on Windows 10 PC:

While the controller should get detected automatically, in case it doesn't work properly, you can re-map the buttons, troubleshoot if Xbox controller disconnects often, and also update the Xbox Controller in Windows 10. Since you are connecting the controller over a wired connection, you will have to reconnect with your Xbox one using the pairing button.

Remember, there is no direct way of playing the games on Windows 10 PC. It doesn't work like installing an EXE on your PC. So the only way out is one of the above-mentioned methods.
