If the game has FastStart enabled, all you have to do is start downloading it.

The information comes directly from Microsoft (via Polygon) and applies to select Xbox One games.

This is what differentiates it from the existing Ready to Start feature - that allowed players to launch games before they were fully downloaded, but required developers to manually section off required data.
