After rolling out early access for many users over the past few weeks, Xbox has announced its Cloud Gaming service is now available for all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members on Windows 10 PCs, along with Apple phones and tablets via the browser.
While it's still in a beta format, all members can now head on over to the browser based application on either Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Safari. As it stands, it's available in 22 countries, so may not be available in your territory as of yet.
We are creating a future that combines the gaming heritage of Xbox and the power of Azure. A future where we bring high fidelity, immersive games to the 3 billion players around the world.
Now we’re taking a big step forward to reaching that vision: Starting today, Xbox Cloud Gaming is available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members with Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets, via browser, across 22 countries.
If you’re a member or want to become a member, simply go to xbox.com/play on Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Safari on your PC or mobile device to start playing hundreds of games from the Xbox Game Pass library.
Not only that, but the experience has been "significantly improved". As of today, Xbox Cloud Gaming will be running on Series X hardware - something that many have reported rolling out over the past few weeks, too. It's said to bring "faster load times, improved frame rates, and an experience of a new generation of gaming". To improve latency, games will be streamed at 1080p and run up to 60FPS.
This is a fantastic step and opens up gaming to a wider audience. Now, many will be able to play a variety of experiences on the go, or from the comfort of their own bed via Xbox Cloud Gaming. As mentioned by Xbox, this isn't the end, as it aims to "innovate and add more features to enhance your cloud gaming experience."
