Will backward Compatibility work with Xbox 360 Games with Gold?

I don't have a 360 but for last couple of months I have logged on to store via the web and selected "buy" with the XBOX 360 games that were free with gold for that month.  Message then tells me, "Game will download when I log onto my 360"

So If it turns out that any of the free Games with Gold are launched as BC, will they automatically download to my XB1 does anyone know?

They will be in your "Ready to install" list on your Xbox one, it's at the far right of your games & apps list.

ty all for responses, fingers crossed for BC :)

Major Nelson mentioned on his podcast that they are working towards making sure the 360 games with gold make it to BC. At least that's how I heard it. I'm making sure I get them all anyways regardless.

AS LONG as the game is on the list.. if it does not make the BC list, then it wont play on the X1

Did we say yes? The answer is yes, defense grid was on gwg and it was most certainly in my install list.
