You can now install Windows 10 apps on your Xbox One from your PC

April 5, 2017

Microsoft added some improvements to the Windows Store with a new update last night. The update introduced an improve progress bar design for downloads, easier sharing, and interactive notifications. The update also introduced another major feature which we weren’t able to spot initially: the ability to install an app on the Xbox One right from your PC.

With the new update, you can now install a Windows 10 app on your Xbox One from your Windows 10 PC which is really convenient. This feature is obviously only available for Universal Windows Apps that are available for both PCs and the Xbox One. For instance, you can install apps like Skype’s Windows 10 from your PC on your Xbox One using the latest version of the Windows Store.

At the moment, this feature is only available on PCs but it would also be very neat if you could install apps on your Xbox One from your Windows 10 Mobile device. Additionally, it will also be really nice if you could install an app on your PC from your phone and vice-versa.

Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring can try this feature out right now by updating the Windows Store to its latest version. As we noted earlier, the update brings some other features and you can get a slightly more detailed look at those here.
