Just a couple of days before the 2015 National Football League season begins, Windows 10 PC owners can now download the official NFL app for the OS. Developed directly by Microsoft, the app has most of the features that are included in the updated Xbox One NFL app.
As previously reported, the NFL on Windows will support a new game replay feature, based on data gathered by RFID chips that will be put into the shoulder pads of all NFL players. Here's a quick look at that addition along with the app's other features:
- View Next-Gen Replays with an all-new interactive field view - view the play from 3 different camera angles, select players to see their stats and break down the play in slow motion.
- NFL.com Fantasy integration lets you track your Fantasy matchup for all your NFL.com fantasy leagues.
- Game Day notifications keep you informed whenever your favorite team scores.
- Track live game stats and scores from around the league with in-game highlights moments after the play happens on the field. ( Follow your favorite team's latest highlights and in-depth analyst opinions.
The only thing the NFL app on Windows 10 will not be able to do is show live games directly from the app; which is a feature that is included in the Xbox One version. The may be a universal app however, the version for phone is not yet enabled for the Store.
