Xbox Is Bringing Cloud Gaming To The Amazon Fire TV Stick

The next step in Microsoft's big plan for Xbox Cloud Gaming is being carried out today, as the xCloud service has now been announced for the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K and Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

Soon, you'll be able to play Xbox Cloud Gaming titles with a Fire Stick, a Bluetooth-enabled wireless controller and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership - as long as you've got a good enough internet connection, of course.

"The Xbox app will soon be available on the Fire TV Stick 4K Max (2023) ($59.99) and Fire TV Stick 4K (2023) ($49.99). For people new to console gaming, or for those looking for another way to play, it’s a great low-cost, convenient, and portable option to enjoy a huge library of incredible games."

If you've got what you need, you'll be able to download the Xbox app on your Fire Stick starting in July, in which you'll just need to connect your Xbox account and start playing. Of course, there's also the option of playing on a phone or an internet browser, for example - Xbox Cloud Gaming is pretty much everywhere these days!

The only catch here is that "over 25 countries" are mentioned as part of the xCloud / Fire Stick deal, so some regions will inevitibly miss out. The full list of countries has not yet been provided by Microsoft.
