Although it's had to overcome a series of hurdles to make it happen, Xbox Cloud Gaming is, in fact, on its way to iOS devices. As of last month, it was apparently "not very far away", so what's the latest?
Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, last week reassured a fan that Xbox hasn't forgotten about iOS support for xCloud and that it'll be coming soon. Despite being a simple one-word response, it's since been liked thousands of times.
It was recently reported that Microsoft has a "What's Next For Gaming" event coming up in the next few weeks that isn't expected to focus on games, so this might be where Xbox Cloud Gaming finally gets its release date for iOS.
Last month, Phil Spencer also showed off what appeared to be an early look at the upcoming xCloud app for PC.
Are you one of the many who have been waiting for Xbox Cloud Gaming to show up on your Apple device? How about PC? Tell us in the comments down below.
I can’t wait for this
I'm more interested in the PC app in all honesty just to compare stability.
I say this because xCloud just doesn't work well for me on my Android phone over 5ghz Wi-Fi, so I'm interested to see if a wired connection on PC makes any difference or maybe the local servers are just too far away for me to have a stable experience.
Will be great to have access on my iPad Pro but the big thing will be when they get it to 1080p rather than the current shabbiness of 720p.
That's great news for IOS owners but i could never play video games on my phone or tablet.. Console 4 Lyfe
Being able to play on a phone is fine and I guess some people like it, but the screen is too small.
I'll be interested to use it on my iPad when I can as that opens a few more doors but PC and consoles themselves is where I'll really start to use Xbox Cloud gaming.
Being able to just jump into any game pass title without downloading will be a massive game changer
@blinx01 same here, really looking forward to trying out the PC app. Works well now with my phone/tablet connected to the TV but PC would be more ideal for how our setup is. Really hope its not to far behind the iOS version.
@roe its really no different than playing on a switch with most modern phones. Even my kids' phones have larger and better screens than a Switch so it's really not to much of a comprimise on that front.
