Trending: ‘No time to waste’: Bill Gates outlines actions to combat coronavirus now as well as future crises

If you own both a Microsoft Surface and the Xbox One, the video above is certainly worth a watch if you’re interested in how the two devices can work together.

xboxoneSean Ong, a 28-year-old clean energy consultant from Seattle, just posted his latest YouTube video that shows off some pretty sweet tips and tricks for integrating the Surface and Xbox One.

Ong, who also has similar advice videos on his YouTube page, demonstrates features like screen mirroring, casting content from Windows Media Center and SmartGlass integration.

He does this by taking advantage of the Xbox One’s HDMI input port, which is really meant to feed your cable or satellite connection to the console, allowing you to watch live TV easily. We used a similar strategy to play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One.

If you only have a Surface 2, check out this video where Ong talks about his favorite features for Microsoft’s latest tablet.
