Microsoft recently showed off some of the upcoming features coming to the Xbox One at Build 2016, including a universal Store, Universal Windows Apps, Cortana, and more. In a podcast, Microsoft’s Larry Hryb shared some tiny info on some other things that the company is working on. Hryb revealed that the company is working on some “cool stuff” for Kinect with the Xbox One, while he didn’t reveal much about the upcoming changes, he noted about Cortana for the Xbox one — which will be coming to Kinect owners later this summer with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

In addition to this, Hryb also talked about some interesting new features for Xbox One streaming to Windows 10. Apparently, the company may add a new feature which will allow Xbox One owners to stream games to a PC which isn’t on their local network. Of course, this will be quite hard to implement as it will require you to have a very good internet connection. It will be very interesting to see if Microsoft releases this feature in the coming months.

We will probably get to know more about the upcoming new features for Kinect and the Xbox One at E3 2016, which is happening in June.
