Windows 10 xCloud Gaming: Microsoft has added support for xCloud Gaming to the Xbox App on Windows 10 PCs today, after testing the service on compatible web browsers earlier this year. According to the firm, this would allow gamers to play more than 100 high-end Xbox games on their Windows PC without having to physically install them.
In an official blog post, the Redmond giant announced the inclusion of xCloud to the Xbox App. The Xbox Cloud Gaming service, according to Jason Beaumont, partner director of Xbox Experiences, would allow customers to transform their budget and low-spec PCs into gaming devices by simply attaching a suitable Xbox controller through Bluetooth or USB.
Players will be able to start playing a game on their PCs from the “cloud games” area of the Xbox App thanks to xCloud Gaming. Furthermore, users will be able to continue playing a game they began on their Xbox console on their PCs, or they will be able to try out a new game from the Xbox Game Pass catalog to see whether they want to download it on their Xbox device. Players will be able to check out games on their PCs before purchasing them on their Xbox consoles in this way.
Additionally, Microsoft has added some new features to help players get started, such as “easy-to-access information on a controller and network status, social features to stay connected with friends, and the ability to invite people – even those also playing on the cloud without the game installed – to join you in a game.”
When it comes to the xCloud service on the Xbox App, it’s presently in beta for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members who are also members of the Xbox Insider program. Check out the cloud gaming service, which is accessible in 22 countries.
