Play to on Windows 8 a pretty good Airplay alternative


In a post on MSDN Microsoft discussed the Windows 8 Play To functionality, which allows Windows 8 devices to connect seamlessly to Xbox 360 and other (unspecified) devices and stream media like photos, videos and music to the device.

The post describes how developers can enable to feature in only a few lines of code in their own applications, and that even web pages can be Play To enabled, meaning a video streaming website could easily allow one to move the stream to a big screen.

The functionality is only waiting for developers to take advantage of it. If that’s you hop on over to MSDN to make sure your app can take advantage of the biggest screen in your home.
