Microsoft presented a lot of innovations and new features at yesterday’s Microsoft Event in New York. During the conference, there was talk of gaming on the Windows 10 and Xbox and how the company will improve it with the next major update for Windows 10, the Creators Update. The main highlight of the gaming talk, though, is definitely the introduction of game streaming to Windows 10.

Starting with the Creators Update, Windows 10 users will be able to broadcast their gameplay to other people using the Windows 10 Game Bar. To activate it, all users need to do is press Win + G, open the Game Bar, and click on the Broadcast button.

Earlier this year, Microsoft acquired Twitch’s rival company, Beam. As Beam also offers live streaming, we could see this feature eventually coming to Windows 10. And as it turns out, the Creators Update is when Microsoft will finally bring it to life.

Broadcasts in Windows 10, however, will work differently than on Twitch. Windows 10 gamers will be able to communicate directly with the broadcaster and give them more instructions about the game. This feature was presented by Xbox’s Jenn McCoy, who watched her friend playing Forza Horizon 3 on stage. She was able to send him a message about what he should do next by clicking on an option underneath the broadcast window.

What do you think about the upcoming game broadcasting feature for Windows 10? Does it have a potential to become as popular as Twitch? Tell us in the comments.
