Microsoft has announced that its game streaming service, Xbox Cloud Gaming, is now available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers across 22 countries. Although the service still appears to be in beta, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers from around the world can try it out today on Windows 10 PCs, Android devices, and Apple phones and tablets via select browsers (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Safari) at xbox.com/play. Microsoft has also confirmed that Xbox Cloud Gaming is now powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware, enabling faster load times, improved frame rates, and other next-gen benefits in select titles.
Cloud gaming provides seamless play across your devices. When you’re streaming games on a PC or mobile device, your game is playing from Xbox hardware in a Microsoft datacenter. This means you can jump into a game, connect with your friends, and play through the Xbox network just as you’ve always done. That’s right, your game saves are just the same wherever and whenever you play, so you can pick right back up from where you left off.
