Xbox One mouse and keyboard support coming soon

Microsoft’s Xbox boss Phil Spencer has hinted support for keyboard and mouse accessories is coming soon to the company’s flagship Xbox One console.

Microsoft is already planning to unleash Xbox game streaming to Windows 10, but it appears the reserve is also on the way.

Replying to a question on Windows 10 PC to Xbox One streaming, Spencer admitted compatibility isn’t ‘far away’.

On Twitter (via VentureBeat) he wrote: “Yep, keyboard and mouse support for Xbox would need to be there for this to work, those aren’t far away.”

He added: “Still finishing Xbox-to-Win10 streaming right now. I like the idea of Win10 to Xbox One streaming but don’t have a plan yet.”

The functionality, if it ever comes to fruition, would make it easy for users to remotely access their computers on a living room TV.

The Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 feature became available to all users of Microsoft’s Windows Insiders platform on Monday.

The feature is Microsoft’s answer to the Sony PS4 Remote Play feature, but with Windows 10 being so ubiquitous, it’ll be available to a much larger percentage of users.

Windows 10 will begin its roll out on July 29, with Insiders getting the final release first. A roll out for the Xbox One is expected before the year is out.
