PC-style keyboard and mouse support appears to be on the way to Xbox One.

The console can already work with USB keyboards, and now Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that mouse support is also in the works.

The confirmation came from a conversation on Twitter regarding the possibility of PC streaming to Xbox One.

Still finishing Xbox to Win10 streaming right now. I like the idea of Win10->Xbox One streaming but don't have a plan yet,” Spencer said. When it was pointed out that mouse support would be required for this to work, Spencer replied: Yep, keyboard and mouse support for Xbox would need to be there for this to work, those aren't far away.”

The release of Windows 10 later this month will bring with it Xbox One to PC streaming for the first time.
