Xbox Cloud Gaming beta arrives on iOS and Windows PCs this week

Microsoft today announced that it will begin inviting “select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members” to start testing the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers.

“The limited beta is our time to test and learn; we’ll send out more invites on a continuous basis to players in all 22 supported countries, evaluate feedback, continue to improve the experience, and add support for more devices,” said Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President & Head of Product, Project xCloud, in a blog post

“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.”

Users receiving an invite need a USB-connected controller or a compatible Bluetooth or can use custom touch controls for “more than 50 games to start playing and testing”. 

Microsoft has started to test the service in beta for Android users since 2020. 

“In the early stages of the beta, we’ll be focusing on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across platforms, while making sure games are running their best.”
