Talking Point: What Would Convince You To Use Xbox Cloud Gaming More Often?

It's now been just over two years since Xbox Cloud Gaming first launched as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and it's ultimately come a long way in that time, adding support for consoles, TVs, the Meta Quest 2 and much more.

However, as impressive as it is to stream hundreds of Xbox Game Pass titles via the cloud, it seems as though a lot of players aren't actually taking advantage of it. Xbox's Sarah Bond recently admitted as part of the Activision Blizzard saga that Cloud Gaming is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate's least popular feature, and the majority of usage right now is apparently coming from console users - rather than across Android and iOS devices.

So, the question is why Xbox Cloud Gaming isn't more popular. In some cases, it might just be a choice thing — after all, most of us would rather access the native version of a game rather than its cloud-based counterpart — and in others, it's probably because connection speeds aren't always fast or reliable enough to effectively make use of it.

There's also the fact that Xbox Cloud Gaming only works with Xbox Game Pass games right now. Team Xbox has hinted at plans to make more titles available via the cloud in the future, but we haven't heard anything about this lately.

With all of this in mind, we're interested to know what would convince you to use Xbox Cloud Gaming more often. Better streaming quality? A wider range of supported titles? More games with touch screen controls? How about a dedicated Xbox handheld device? We'd love to hear your suggestions down in the comments section below.
