Microsoft said that for Windows 10 users, you’ll get access to a brand new Xbox One controller that includes new buttons for Xbox One, Xbox Music, and the ability for you to change controller inputs and volume for games.

As for Xbox Music on Windows and Xbox Music sync on Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Microsoft’s blog post explains that these are new features coming to Windows Mixed reality headsets that lets you stream music to your Mixed Reality headset and Xbox One console while you’re in the middle of playing a game.
Microsoft’s statement says:”For Windows Mixed-reality headsets, you can use Microsoft’s Microsoft Music streaming and music sync feature on Windows PCs, which works with Windows Mixed VR headsets and Windows Mixed headsets on Windows phones.
With Microsoft Music sync, you will be able to stream music from your Windows Mixed PC to your Windows mixed VR headset and vice versa.”
For Windows 10 gamers, Microsoft has also added an ability to import your music collection to Windows 10 devices with the new Music app.

You can also share Xbox Live games from your Xbox 360 console to your Xbox 10 PC, Xbox 10 Xbox Live PS4, and Xbox Live PC with friends.
Microsoft’s statement also notes that the Xbox team is working on a new Xbox app for Windows that will let people share games with their friends and get access directly to your Microsoft Account.
