Xbox App no streaming option?

Hello,

The Xbox App can connect to my Xbox console but there is no streaming option on the screen... now I found a stream option on Xbox App's Home but when I try that it will say that I can't stream because either the App or The console is not updated, They both are, I checked the store for the App and my Console says that there are no updates.. Also in the App I can't go to the Game DVR settings, it says that I need the Media Feature Pack wich is nowhere to be found....

Help is appreciated.

Hey,

This issue is normally displayed if you have not turned on Game Streaming to other devices on the console settings. Please try the steps bellow on the Xbox One console:

Settings>Preferences>Allow Game Streaming to other devices.

Once you have done that, you should be able to stream. Please make sure you are login with the same profile on the Xbox App.

Happy Gaming :-)

I'm having the same problem, I have 2 pc's there both on the same wifi network as the Xbox one. The Xbox app itself DOES NOT have an option to connect or stream. If you need a screen shot I can provide one. Is their an update to the Xbox app version 5.6.17000.00000. There is NO option on that version to connect or stream from the Xbox One. Please help

Athomzie,

Are your console and PC on the same network? If not, please put them on the same network and try again.

If they are on the same network, are they connected to the router in the same way (ie wired vs wireless)? If not, change so both are wired or both are wireless and then refresh the app.

Can you control the other features through the Xbox App? For instance, can you increase/decrease the TV volume or navigate around the console dashboard using the virtual A/B/X/Y buttons?

Hey NinjaGaming230 and CobwebbySet,

Please verify that you have updated the Xbox App to Version: 7.7.21024.00000. To do this, navigate to the Windows Store and check for updates. For a quick rundown on how, check out our Check for App Updates on Windows 10 support page.

Athomize,

In addition to Maxen13's suggestions, do you have the option to 'Play from console' while viewing any Game Hub? For an example with a neat little picture, check out our How to Use Game Streaming on Windows 10 page and skip to the 'How to launch a game from the Xbox app' portion! :)
