Microsoft has announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming now runs on Xbox Series X, more PCs, and Apple devices.
Microsoft is making its Xbox Cloud Gaming service available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members on Windows 10 PCs, and Apple phones and tablets, via browser.
In addition to the above, Microsoft is bringing several improvements to the experience, as Xbox Cloud Gaming will now be powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware. The upgrades should bring faster load times, improved frame rates, and a better gaming experience at 1080p and up to 60fps.
Cloud gaming sets you up for gaming wherever you are, letting you pick up where you left off, seamlessly, across devices. For example, you could stream a game on your PC and continue playing on a mobile device like an iPad or iPhone.
The game will be playing from Xbox hardware in a Microsoft datacenter, so you can just “jump into a game, connect with your friends, and play through the Xbox network just as you’ve always done.” This also means that you’ll have access to your game saves wherever you are.
If you’re playing on a mobile device, you’ll be able to use touch controls that have been enabled for over 50 games, or any supported controller (i.e. Backbone One for iOS). Of course, you’ll also be able to play using a compatible Xbox Wireless Controller.
If you’re interested in the service, head to xbox.com/play.
