Can you play PC games with Xbox players?

Of course! With an Xbox One and a PlayStation 4, there is really no special trick to using Steam (or any other program). Just open it up and use your controller to navigate. Unfortunately, Windows doesn’t support keyboard and mouse input, so you’ll have to restrict yourself to games that are compatible with game pads.
I do have a recommendation, though: On your computer, turn on Steam’s Big Picture Mode. (It’s in the View menu.) In case you’ve never tried it before, Big Picture optimizes Steam for a controller-based living room setup. This will allow you to not only play games but also to work with a sort of miniature operating system. It can save you quite a bit of time if your Xbox and PC are in different rooms
As discussed above, you can stream Steam games to your Xbox — but you might not necessarily want to. During my own tests, even on a strong broadband network, I encountered a lot of lag, imprecision and inconsistency.
The worst part was not the video, which frequently paused to buffer — it was actually the audio, which vacillated between “almost inaudible” and “uncomfortably loud.” It would cut out, play for a few muffled seconds, then come through loud and clear, then restart the process every few seconds.
The app always has the potential to improve, of course, but for those of you who have never used Miracast before, this is pretty much how it works, even at the best of times. It’s convenient for broadcasting a few images onto a big screen, but it’s never been all that good at streaming video and audio with perfect fidelity. And you really, really need solid video and audio for Steam.

No, there is no support for cross-play on Xbox.
When using an Xbox Play Anywhere game, your game progress is saved on Xbox Live.  So, you can pick up where you left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, bringing all your saves, game add-ons, and achievements with you.
