Microsoft is making its Windows 10 Game Bar more useful for PC Gamers playing games with an Xbox One controller.

Over the last several years, there has been a big push from consumers and hardware creators to enable the consumption of digital content across a variety of devices.

In a similar vein to Steam Link, it allows you to play PC games on the Xbox One console while using the Xbox controller.

The Xbox One Phantom White controller first appeared in a leak this week, showing a white version of the Phantom Black controller Microsoft introduced back in August 2018. Once the app is open on your Xbox One, press Windows key + P to bring up the "Project" menu on your PC. There's a 3.5mm audio headphone jack for directly connecting a wired headset, Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, and support for custom button mapping via the Xbox Accessories companion app. While its output has been confined to tablets and other Miracast-enabled devices, compatibility with the Xbox One and its controller is now official. Indeed, the updated Game Bar can now show you how much battery you have left in your Xbox One controller, just like it works on the console.

Full Xbox One controller support is available while game casting, however, mouse and keyboard support is not supported, at least for the time being.
