Microsoft is testing xCloud and Xbox integration

Microsoft has begun testing the integration of Xbox Cloud Gaming (formally known as xCloud) with the Xbox platform.

Some Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha episodes have access to the xCloud integration that allows them to play Xbox Game Pass and stream immediately.

The new xCloud integration allows Xbox users to try out the game before downloading it completely, so they don't have to spend hours downloading the game. You can try it or try it before you buy it in the future.

As part of the first xCloud integration, Xbox Game Pass offers over 100 games. Once a friend sends an invite, Xbox players can upgrade to multiplayer games.

A cloud icon will appear next to games that are compatible with xCloud integration, indicating that you can stream them right away.

With this integration, the company supports 1080p game streaming at 60 frames per second, as well as regular network streaming of xCloud games. This function is not set for 4K TV streaming.

The company began testing with a random subset of Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha Insiders, and over time expanded to include two other testers.

Microsoft pledges to complete the integration by the end of the year

Except for the Xbox system, almost all devices can use xCloud officially. Via the web app portal, it includes Windows 11, Android, and in some cases even iOS.

However, xCloud is now available directly on the Xbox platform. Including Xbox One and other previous generation models. This means that owners of platforms with more than 7 years of history can, to some extent, play the latest games.

Microsoft promises that xCloud integration will appear on all Xbox platforms by the end of this year. This means that the Xbox One can stream exclusive Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator and The Medium.
