This functionally will not be available to all users of Xbox One until November this year courtesy a major Xbox One update.
One of the significant features offered exclusively in the Preview Program of Xbox One is backwards compatibility with Xbox One. The latter feature enables users to play games of Xbox 360 on their brand new consoles.
With the Windows 10 launch, Microsoft revealed that it has under work the streaming of PC games to consoles of Xbox One.
