If you have an Xbox, there may be times when you want to conduct some serious gaming but the TV to which the Xbox is connected might be in use for something else. The answer is to play games from your Xbox onto your laptop. Streaming gaming to a different device on the same network is simpler than you might expect. It also works online in certain cases, so you could be at a hotel a thousand miles away and still play your Xbox on your laptop.

As you might guess, connecting Xbox to a Mac is not as straightforward. There is no official Xbox application for macOS, nor is there an official way to transmit whatever is playing on your Microsoft console to an Apple computer.
OneCast, a third-party option, is available, however, this is only compatible with earlier Xbox consoles and is not free. You simply need to set it up as you would an Xbox to a Windows laptop, and you can start playing your Xbox when you run the OneCast app on your Mac. One thing to keep in mind is that OneCast solely works over local WiFi networks, so you won't be able to play on your Xbox remotely.
