Allow for games to be streamed anywhere
It's great that Microsoft is allowing Xbox One games to be streamed to any Windows 10 powered device but it would be great if you were able to stream your games to windows 10 powered devices on a different wifi networks. For instant, if your away from home but your connected to wifi you can stream you games to your laptop/phone.
This needs to be implemented... I use Sony's Remote Play all the time outside my home network. If Microsoft implemented this I would have little reason to stick around on the Sony side.
We need this feature. Please!
to a laptop anyway, to clarify
you can already do this using some network tricks

This needs to happen. Why can't I just take my pc and controller with me where ever I go and be able to play Xbox through streaming. Why should I have to pack up my Xbox and or tv to just be able to play. I go out of the country often I do get internet but have to pack up my Xbox, own tv and all the wires to just be able to have the ability to play games in my off time. Or I leave my tv and have to convert from HDMI to RCA. Video quality suffers making it impossible to read anything and games fuzzy, so I always have to bring a small tv with me because of that. Make this happen Microsoft, let me bring my pc and still be able to enjoy my Xbox without lugging it around.
Can't believe they haven't done this I have even emailed MS directly and provided feedback in the app and upvoted this idea and still no sign of it. Keeping hold of my ps4 for now.
I would love to this feature as I would be able to bring my windows 10 lab top anywhere and still be a Le to play my xbox
We really need this!

Come on MS. With this feature I won't need to buy a switch!
How does this not have 1000000 votes.
I understand it would be convenient if streaming to a PC over the internet were supported natively. But, luckily, there are multiple ways to achieve this today. An easy way I found is to enable the VPN on my home router and use that to connect to my home network from anywhere in the world. You'll need to know your public IP address and also your Xbox's local IP address. I have found the streaming works very well.
I would love this more than any other feature!

It's not great. It's utterly pointless. Why the *** would I want to stream to a windows pc in my own home? It's not like I'll be playing it for an extended period of time away from the console itself. They need to take a play from Sony's book. You can stream ps4 anywhere on any network. How in the world did they think that not streaming to different networks was a good idea. Wow.
make a nvidia shield like app for mobile devices!!!

The problem is this is how far data has to travel in both directions so in the majority of cases input is laggy.
Neither Steam nor Xbox stream via the Internet because actual Gameplay is considered unplayable. Also in personal experience I have found both Xperia & VITA to be far too laggy on every connection "via Internet", as an experience to actually use and enjoy.
It only works well on Games with minimal input such as 2D Games, Slow-paced or "Point n' Click" Games.
would like to be able to stream from my xbox one at home to my laptop at work 5 minutes drive away.
home connection runs at theoretical 72.2Mbps, with actual download speeds on the home wifi ranging between 25Mbps and 50Mbps and upload speeds 3Mbps-10Mbps.
work connection is verizon 4G LTE and also runs at theoretical over 70Mbps, with comparable download and upload speeds usually as well compared to the home network.
i don't understand why you can't just do remote desktop or vpn connection or something baked into the console and the xbox app and make this type of thing possible for those who would enjoy the feature.
It's simple Microsoft, add this streaming feature which can be done...or lose your customers to Sony which has this feature. It's a *** or get off the pot kind of situation here and the solution is just a no brainer.
playstation 4's remote play on my macbook, my tablet pc, and my windows 10 laptop is working perfectly on wifi or LTE network. So, I have no choice but to play playstation 4 rather than xbox one during travel for work or at workplace.

Yes Microsoft needs to see this hopefully they release this shortly before Scorpio comes out next year
it is possible and i would like to have an app to do it in a simpler way within the xbox one.
by example Xoon ( an app in the store) helps for that but the infos like external ip and port fowarding is too complicated for noobs.
So it could be nice to have something within the xbox one that allow players to wake n stream the xbox one from anywhere in the world via a UWP app or a browser by just typing a login and a password
