Microsoft has outlined what the upcoming Windows 10 update will bring to gamers, including details on the new Xbox App.

In a post on the Xbox Wire, Microsoft details some "of the many" key reasons the new Xbox App will improve gaming for Xbox One players who also have Windows 10 devices.

"Windows 10 is kind of a big deal," states Microsoft. "With countless improvements and pantloads of new features, it’s putting a whole new face on the personal computing world. But of course, what we’re most excited about are gaming features – and fortunately, Windows 10 is bringing with it a renewed focus on gaming. One of the most visible elements is the new Xbox app."

The new Xbox App will stream "pretty much any" Xbox one game to any Windows 10 PC or tablet, which includes controller support and backwards compatibility. You can also remotely switch on your Xbox One from your device.

Editing and sharing recorded game clips can be done "easily and quickly with the click of a button", and you will be able to access Xbox Live's social features from your Windows 10 device -- including the ability to set-up and join Xbox Live parties, regardless of whether your friends are playing an Xbox or PC game, or are on a Windows 10 PC device or Xbox One.

Multiplayer gaming in PC games that use Xbox Live is also free.

But that's not all. In addition to the Xbox App refresh -- as well as some of the functionality boosts we already know about, such as DirectX 12, streaming to PC and the pro-bono price tag -- Windows 10 also promises better scaling for 4K monitors, native controller support (including the new Xbox One Elite controller) and "super-fast boot times".

Windows 10 rolls out from today. If you plan to upgrade soon, make sure you prepare your PC beforehand.

You sign up for Windows 10 yet, via the little icon that appears on the bottom right?

Good.

When your PC has finished downloading it (which it will currently be doing), a new icon should appear in the bottom right saying it's ready to install.

I'm still waiting for that last bit to happen, so this is all what I've read. I don't think there is anyway of telling that your PC is actually downloading Windows 10.

It will only have been on your computer when Microsoft decided to put it there.

I had to click the little Get Windows 10 symbol in the bottom right corner of my screen to start updating.
