Good news for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, the cloud gaming from Microsoft will land on new devices on Tuesday, April 20. Today reserved for owners of an Android smartphone or tablet, xCloud as it was once called, will be accessible on any device from Chrome, Safari and Edge (www.xbox.com/play). You can connect any Bluetooth controller to play remotely, without having a console.
By invitation only
Unfortunately, there may be disappointments. In its press release, Microsoft announces that only a few invited players will be able to try the web version of the service at the start. Gradually, Microsoft will add more people, until the total opening of the service. This is still a beta version, with only 22 eligible countries (including France).
Also to discover in video:
As a reminder, Microsoft hoped to launch xCloud on Android and iOS initially, but Apple opposed the publication of such a service on its App Store. Microsoft has therefore decided to circumvent the Californian ban by using a web-app system. Google, with Stadia, already offers a similar system on iOS.
