Beta for Microsoft Project xCloud to be Available in October in Select Regions

25/09/2019
After continuously testing its Project xCloud streaming gaming service in an internal group, Microsoft is now looking to expand its testing of the service for a broader audience. This will be done via a Beta launch of the service, available at first only for residents in the US and UK (click here, and (South) Korea (click here). The idea is to stress-test the service, since according to Microsoft, “It’s time to put Project xCloud to the test in a broader capacity, with a range of gamers, devices, network environments and real-world use-case scenarios, and this is where you come in.” There is no end in sight for the Beta: Microsoft wants it to last “until customers are consistently reporting a great, fun experience and the technology meets our internal quality standards.”

The only thing that’s needed to participate is a Bluetooth Xbox One controller that you can connect to whatever device you want, be it a smartphone, tablet, or other streaming-capable device. The idea here is to test the xCloud service in as broad hardware and network configurations as possible, and it’s a Beta, so remember to cool your expectations adequately. You won’t be able to play games that are already connected to your account – Microsoft offers a curated selection of titles that includes (for the time being) Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, Killer Instinct, and Sea of Thieves.
