Vice President & Head of Product, Project xCloud, Catherine Gluckstein announced today on the Xbox Wire that starting tomorrow invites will be sent out to select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to test the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for Apple phones and tablets via web browsers and Windows 10 PC.
Invited players will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles through various web browsers, including Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Safari. The limited beta supports 22 countries and Microsoft will use the player’s feedback to improve the overall experience and add support for more devices.
Offering cloud gaming through the browser and having a simplified, universal landing page presents a great opportunity to make cloud gaming approachable to more players in more places over time.
Our plan is to iterate quickly and open up to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in the coming months so more people have the opportunity to play Xbox in all-new ways.
This is an exciting step on our journey to bring gaming to the 3 billion players around the world. Thanks so much for helping us shape cloud gaming, from the early days in Preview to today, quite simply we couldn’t have done it without you.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members who receive an invite just need a compatible Bluetooth or USB-connected controller, they can also use custom touch controls for more than 50 games to start playing and testing. The early stages of the limited beta will fine-tune some features to guarantee a consistent experience across platforms while making sure games are running their best.
Initially called Project xCloud, the Xbox Cloud Gaming app was only available through Android devices at launch, but now finally making its way to Windows PCs and iOS devices.
