xCloud is starting to arrive on Xbox platforms

After a limited test in September, Microsoft announced that it's offering the ability to play Xbox Cloud games on a variety of Xbox consoles, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One.

This feature requires a subscription to Game Pass Ultimate. However, participation in the Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha Insider programs is no longer required.

However, this functionality is still in the testing phase. But it's now available to select Xbox users in 25 markets. The company plans in the next few weeks to expand the service to all platforms in these regions.

The company announced that it will be releasing for the first time in November for select Xbox gamers and will support everyone in the market over the coming weeks.

Cloud gaming on the Xbox platform can provide many useful features. You can use it to try out or watch the demo games offered through Game Pass Ultimate without downloading them completely.

If a friend sends you an invite to a multiplayer game you haven't installed yet, you can stream the game to Xbox Cloud Gaming so you can connect live.

If you own an Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming lets you play exclusive next-gen games on previous-gen platforms like Recompile, The Medium, and The Riftbreaker.

Although Microsoft Flight Simulator is not yet available. However, Microsoft announced that it will be added to its cloud gaming library in early 2022.

Xbox Cloud Gaming (formerly Project xCloud) arrived in April as an invite-only beta on iOS and PC and then expanded to all Game Pass Ultimate subscribers in June.

Xbox cloud gaming integration across platforms was first introduced to Xbox Insiders back in September.

During Microsoft's busy week, news of Xbox cloud gaming is hitting the platforms. On Monday, the company unveiled the Halo Infinite multiplayer mode.

In addition, 76 new games have been added to the backward compatibility library. And FPS Boost brings cloud gaming and more Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S games.
