Xbox App on Mac OS X

I don't know if this has already been brought up, but the functionality of the Windows 10 app for Xbox is amazing with how you can stream and socialize through it. Also, you can use smart glass. But what about the Mac users? I understand we're not being loyal by not buying any Windows 10 machines, but Mac OS is useful for graphic design enthusiasts like myself. There are many reasons to get a Mac but why should Mac users miss out on the ability to connect with their Xbox account? Even if there is less functionality; like if we miss out on cross play functionality since that is more of a Windows 10 thing. But the ability to post status updates, manage friends, and stream to our Xbox... Those are all useful things that I believe many Mac users who are also Xbox enthusiasts would LOVE to have.

    Would love to see this idea myself as I love Xbox and I use Mac for short film and music making works. I think if Microsoft and apple cause just a meet in the middle. And make Sony look even more sad than they are already. Since now Microsoft support some cross-lay with Minecraft with Nintendo as such :D

    A Mac can hardly run anything, this wouldn't work and is a completely pointless and stupid idea, just buy a Windows Pc, if you're scared you'll get a virus, then honestly you're just not safe online,simple, just buy a windows pc

    Yes please. I have a MacBook Pro but I've installed windows 10 through boot camp just to use the xbox app. Would much prefer it to be directly on the Mac OS.

    You will never see this.

    Apple blocks the hooks needed to make these things work. Just like they block Blu-ray playback

    Xbox games will not just work, there are very important differences in hardware. 360 BC is specifically tuned for Xbox One, won't work on PC

    Don't know why you don't just install Windows 10 on your Mac. You can dual boot it.

    Yes, there is: put windows 10 on your Mac. Either boot camp or VM. MS wants you to use Windows so they don't want to make a dedicated Mac app.
