Update 2021-09-14: Thanks to a recent upgrade, the Official Xbox App for Windows PC now supports Remote Play. You can grab it from the Windows 10/11 Store.

Ever used the Xbox Console Companion app to remote play Xbox One games from your PC? Frustratingly, this feature was silently dropped for Xbox Series S/X – it just doesn’t work for these new consoles.

However all is not lost. By installing the hidden “Xbox Game Streaming (Test App)” from the Windows 10 Store, you can start streaming again. Here’s how.

How to Remote Play

  1. Go to the Online Link Generator for Windows Store

  2. Copy and paste this this URL: https://www.microsoft.com/es-es/p/xbox-game-streaming-test-app/9nzbpvpnldgm?activetab=pivot:overviewtab. Hit Enter

  3. Download the following file: Microsoft.XboxGameStreaming-ContentTest_1.2108.901.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.appxbundle. It should be ~217MB

  4. Double click to install the app. If you run into a security error you may need to enable Sideloading

  5. Play games!
