Xbox Cloud Gaming (formerly called Job xCloud) is Microsoft s Xbox cloud gaming solution. Initially released in beta screening in November 2019, the service later introduced for clients of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on September 15, 2020. Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming is provided to customers of Ultimate at no extra price.
Microsoft now provides Xbox Cloud Gaming via another way. From now on subscribers of the Xbox Game pass can also use the streaming service with the Xbox app on Windows 10. Already in the last month selected insiders were allowed to try the beta of this function. Now the compatible games can be transferred from all to a PC via Xbox Cloud Gaming. The feature is mainly suitable for users whose calculator is not quite so powerful.
Several months ago, Microsoft has already launched a browser version of Xcloud, which is also necessary for all IOS devices, among other things. At the end of the year, the service should then be used directly via Xbox Series X (Buy Now 529,00 €) / S and Xbox One. The responsible persons have also confirmed that future exclusive titles for Xbox Series X / S via streaming will also be playable on an Xbox One. If your Xbox Cloud Gaming would like to use on your PC, you only need a Bluetooth or USB controller as well as a membership for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Currently, 295 of 406 available games can be streamed via Cloud. A complete list can be found on the Xbox website.
In addition, Microsoft has also added Remote Play for Windows 10. This allows you to stream Games from your Xbox Series X / S or Xbox One to a PC – with a resolution of 1080p with up to 60 fps. Also selected titles for Xbox and Xbox 360, which you can play about the downward compatibility of the consoles can be transferred. Microsoft recommends the use of a local network to achieve the best possible results.
