Microsoft’s cloud-based game-streaming service is finally coming to PC and iOS devices. Invitations will go out to “select” Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members starting April 20 as part of a “limited test” that will be available for the newly supported platforms.
This isn’t a perfect or ideal situation for iOS devices, as Xbox Cloud Gaming on iPhones and tablets is available through web browsers as opposed to directly through an app. For iOS, Microsoft has criticized Apple’s policies that have led to this situation.
Starting April 20, those who have been granted access to the beta can visit Xbox.com/play on Safari, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge to play Xbox games over the cloud. “Offering cloud gaming through the browser and having a simplified, universal landing page presents a great opportunity to make cloud gaming approachable to more players in more places over time,” Microsoft said.
