Microsoft Xbox Cloud Gaming services are now available on iOS devices


With an invite-only beta test that started couple of months back, Microsoft now has rolled out its Xbox Cloud Gaming service to all Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on iOS and PC. With the start of today’s open beta, you can visit the xCloud website and start playing some of the games included in the Game Pass library through your browser. On PC, the service supports Edge and Chrome, while on iOS it’s accessible through Safari. You can also use a controller over Bluetooth or USB to play these games.

Microsoft also shared that it’s now using custom Xbox Series X hardware to power the xCloud experience. If you have a fast internet connection, the new hardware will allow you to stream games at 1080p and up to 60 frames per second. At the same time, Microsoft is expanding its Designed for Xbox to include two iOS controllers: the Backbone One and Razer Kishi. With the new badge, both controllers will come with a complimentary three-month trial of Game Pass Ultimate for those who haven’t tried the service before.
