Xbox Cloud Gaming Heads To PC and Apple Devices Next Year

Xbox Cloud Gaming has proved highly popular with Android users since being introduced as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate this past September, and PC and iOS users will finally be able to join in the fun next year.

Microsoft has confirmed today that it plans to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming (also known as Project xCloud) to these users in Spring 2021, available through the Xbox app and browser on PC, and just mobile browser on iOS.

"By adding over a billion devices as a path to playing in the Xbox ecosystem, we envision a seamless experience for all types of players; whether it’s playing Minecraft Dungeons with your Xbox friends using touch controls on an iPhone, or jumping into a Destiny 2: Beyond Light strike on a Surface Pro when you have a break between meetings."

This is particularly interesting news from an iOS perspective, as Microsoft and Apple have had very public disagreements about bringing Xbox Game Pass streaming to the App Store over the past few months, so Microsoft has clearly decide to take a different route by opting to focus on a mobile browser solution on iPhone and iPad.

In addition, Microsoft has also confirmed that it'll be bringing cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to new markets in 2021 including Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico, where the service is currently available in preview.
