Xbox Cloud Streaming Is Now Available For Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S


While it felt farfetch to believe that xCloud officially arrived to iOS alongside the already administered Android support that came last September, it was only a matter of time before more platforms are to expect a version of xCloud. Already, PC supported the service. However, Microsoft announced that the Xbox App will be welcoming a dedicated version of the system later on in 2021.

Additionally, Microsoft disclosed that xCloud will be making its way to console by the year’s end. More notably for Xbox One: users will have the ability to enjoy next-generation releases such as Redfall & Starfield on the 8th generation machine. Not to mention the repertoire of games available via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as well if you do not have the hard drive space too.

On Wednesday, Microsoft shared that xCloud support will go live for both Xbox One & Xbox Series systems. You can watch the release trailer in the video below:

“We know from you that you want to find and try Xbox Game Pass games before you install them — and today we’re enabling just that. Now you can discover and try lots of different titles quickly right from the cloud until you land on the one you may want to also install — which is still the flagship experience for Xbox consoles,” Xbox Cloud Gaming Vice President and Head of Product Catherine Gluckstein said.

“In addition to that, getting a game invite from a friend for a game you haven’t downloaded yet is no longer going to stop you from joining right away! We’ve built it so the experience is fast, easy, and a great way to discover your next favorite game while saving space on your hard drive for the games you plan to play again and again.” Gluckstein confirms Recompile, The Medium, and The Riftbreaker are playable now on Xbox One with Microsoft Flight Simulator to hit next year.

Recently, xCloud officially hit a milestone with more than 100 titles now supporting native touch screen controls on mobile. The roster varies with dozens of fan-favorites alongside niché indie titles as well. You can read the full report by heading here.
