Exclusive: We discuss ID@Xbox for Windows 10 and phones with Microsoft's indie chief Chris Charla

36

Xbox is hitting Windows 10 in a big way later this year.

Announced back in January, Xbox will receive a dedicated app for Windows 10, providing Game DVR for all PC games, access to your Xbox One social features and game streaming across devices in your home network. In addition to this, independent developers will be able to include Xbox APIs into their games that appear in the Windows app store via the ID@Xbox program, currently available only on Xbox One.

I caught up with ID@Xbox head Chris Charla to discuss how the program has been faring so far, ID@Xbox for Windows 10 (phones too!), and more!

Microsoft Lumia 640 review

Microsoft is steadily getting its handle on its device portfolio after the Nokia acquisition. And it is starting at the bottom and gradually working its way up with the likes of the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532 and the Lumia 535.

Then we got to Mobile World Congress. Microsoft had taken over the space once inhabited by Nokia and used it to deliver a keynote very early on the first morning of the show. Among the Windows 10 talk was the introduction of the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL.

Both another step up on the ladder from those that came before, and taking it up to around half-dozen smartphones to carry the Microsoft logo. The Lumia 640 has big shoes to fill, coming in as a replacement for the very popular Lumia 630/635. Does it do a good job?

That's what we're here to find out.

Hands-on with 6discover for Windows Phone

62

Windows Phone users do not have an official Snapchat application, but 6discover, the latest app from Rudy Huyn, offers one of the major features. You won't be able to create, view, or share snaps with friends. You also won't be able to use 6discover to chat or create stories. You use 6discover for Snapchat's Discover section, which was introduced by the company earlier this year. It lets you see articles, photos and videos from different publications such as CNN, Food Network, Vice, Bleacher Report, and National Geographic.

Check out our hands-on video to see 6discover in action.

The Game + Expansion Pass bundle will normally set you back $84.99, but thanks to that 10% digital discount you can grab it from the store for $76.49.
