Spotify, Chat, and more coming to Game Bar on Windows 10




Today, we are excited to begin testing several new features in beta for Game bar on Windows 10. Game bar is an overlay built into Windows that works over any PC game and can be brought up quickly by pressing the Windows key + G – “Win+G”. Check it out on the Xbox Insider Hub on your Windows 10 PC (more instructions below).


At X018, we shared a commitment to improve PC gaming on Windows 10 and, earlier this year, we kicked off a PC Gaming Idea Drive to get your suggestions. Today, we’re excited to introduce a number of new Game bar features, many inspired by your feedback, including controlling your music through Spotify, creating memes, chatting with friends to share in-game moments, and customizing the UI to your preferred layout. Insiders in our Windows Gaming flight ring can access these new features this week by pressing “Win+G” to bring up the Game bar when playing any PC game.

What is this "Windows key" they speak of? I have an empty void between the Ctrl and Alt keys.

You can set your own hotkey in the Gaming section of Windows Settings.

That audio panel does seem useful in an overlay, I guess it will control any browser or streaming app just like Volume Mixer. Shame every other overlay hasn't got it, it does seem like if you own the OS you could make the most functional and stable out of all of them.
