    Spencer showing a handoff feature between Xbox One and Surface Pro 3. Important: Spencer says this streaming feature works only on Windows 10 PCs and tablets. Doesn't look like your phone can stream an Xbox title just yet.

    "With Xbox moving to Windows, I don't think we're going to see millions of people using Excel on their Xbox," Spencer says. But Microsoft will help developers bring their apps to Xbox if they're relevant.

    "We have to put the gamer at the center of every experience," Spencer says in closing. Spencer has been critical in Microsoft's efforts to turn the image of the Xbox One around, from an entertainment hub with a TV focus back to a hardcore gaming focus.

    Expect to hear more from Spencer and Microsoft in March at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
