This includes a gaming toolbar that will allow you to take screenshots while playing a game and stream directly to Beam, Microsoft’s competitor for Twitch and YouTube Gaming. There will be other functions too.

Game Mode will reportedly have to be enabled on a game-by-game basis. Thus means you’ll need to open a pop-up screen from the game bar and enable the mode for the game that you’re currently running.
