    Has anyone been able to screen cast to their Xbox One after the update? I have been looking forward to using this feature and cant get it to work no matter what i try.

    thanks!

    I use the wireless display app on the Xbox One, and find it as a display on my Win10 machine, and it works without issue for me. This has been an option since before the NXOE, though. So, what is on my PC shows on my X1 as well.

    Where did you find the app? i have looked everywhere on my Xbox one store and haven't seen it anywhere. Is there something special you have to do to get it to show up? is it a setting or something?

    Thanks for your response!

    I did the screen cast (cast media to device) yesterday before the update from Edge and it worked great. I'll have to give it another try now that I have the update installed.

    Did you have to install the wireless display app?

    I was looking for this application also but couldn't find it. This is one of the features that I was looking forward to.

    You have to be invited I think. I was not interested in the preview until now :)

    I will try to remember to look into it when I get home. Sorry, I completely forgot about this yesterday, as I was playing Fallout...

    It used to work fine and now doesn't with new update. Never had to install an app previously to get this working either.

    This is a feature that is missing for so long. How can we not have the ability to cast to xbox yet. It is so disappointing. I was really hoping to use continuum with xbox over miracast.

    Worst part is that people in the recent preview could use a downloadable app to do it. Now, that app has disappeared.

    I can cast from my windows 10 laptop to xbox one. I had to load the films and tv app on the xbox one first.
    and the first time I tried to cast it wouldn't work. I think it had itself in a spin still after install the app. but then it just worked. and even now still working. I didn't need to load the wireless display app.(mind you I cant find it on the store as not a preview member)
    I just wish I could get it to work from my phone now. have a new 950 but no option to cast to anything

    Don't feel like you're missing out on much. The Xbox One is terrible as a Miracast receiver.

    You're way better off with a dedicated receiver.

    Could you elaborate on what you don't like about it?

    It's laggy, and I've seen a lot of screen corruption. Oh, and if you use a wired connection for your Xbox internet, you can't select the 5GHz band - it forces you to use the 2.4GHz one.

    Now, I live in a city so it's probably a worst case scenario, but the Microsoft Display Adapter is way better...and the Screenbeam 2 Mini is even better than that.

    Well am more than happy with how it casts from my laptop to the xbox. and with a good quality video it runs well and views fine.. So if I could get the same result from phone without having to purchase a dedicated receiver than would be very happy.

    Right, but what you're describing in your previous post isn't Miracast anyway. My post was exclusively about the Xbox One's poor implementation of Miracast.
