The connection between the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs has recently become tighter thanks to the world’s first Windows 10 PC with integrated Xbox One wireless adapter: Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube. Xbox One users will be soon able to connect all their console accessories to their Windows 10 PCs without using external wireless adapters.

Expanding the Xbox One ecosystem to Windows 10 PCs is one of Microsoft’s top priorities. The tech giant will launch the Xbox Play Anywhere program in September, and has also announced the Xbox One Preview program will soon come to Windows 10.

Xbox One users can already connect their console accessories to their Windows 10 PCs using a wireless adapter which costs $24.99.  The tech giant is planning to strike a series of deals with technology manufacturers so as to implement the Xbox One wireless adapter on as many computer models as possible.

While this is the first partner device to have built-in Xbox Wireless support, it won’t be the last. We are currently working with other partners such as Astro, PDP, Turtle Beach, and many more. Going forward, you should expect to see both new PCs and new accessories that support Xbox Wireless as we create new ways for our fans to play seamlessly across devices.

Built-in Xbox One wireless adapters will deliver the best wireless gaming experience across Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Other advantages include:

  • Low-latency and high-quality wireless gameplay for up to 8 devices at once
  • Cross-platform use across Xbox One and Windows PCs
  • Wireless support for stereo sound through a headset
  • Eliminating the need for multiple adapters or wires for each device.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is the first Windows 10 laptop with built-in Xbox One wireless support, and Microsoft is planning to further develop this concept.

In the IdeaCentre Y710, for example, we are using the Xbox Wireless Adapter and integrating it inside the physical chassis – the first time this has ever been done officially.  In the future, we plan to enable direct integration of Xbox Wireless into PC motherboards with our hardware partners.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube will officially be launched in October and will have a $1,299.99 price tag.
