xCloud game streaming service is set to come to iOS and PC in Spring 2021. Microsoft confirmed the launch date for the xCloud Beta in a recent announcement. The Xbox app will be hosting the PC games for Windows 10 users while the iOS users will be able to do so through the web.
While Microsoft is still introducing the beta mode of this service, the gamers will be looking forward to exactly the same experience no matter if they are on iPhone, Xbox, or PC.
According to the press release published on Microsoft’s website, “In Spring 2021, we will take the next step in our journey to reach more players around the world by making cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available on Windows PCs through the Xbox app and browser, and iOS devices through mobile web browser. By adding over a billion devices as a path to playing in the Xbox ecosystem, we envision a seamless experience for all types of players; whether it’s playing Minecraft Dungeons with your Xbox friends using touch controls on an iPhone, or jumping into a Destiny 2: Beyond Light strike on a Surface Pro when you have a break between meetings.”
Microsoft will be introducing the new xCloud experience as part of its $15/month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate experience, and Brazil, Australia, Mexico, and Japan will also be on the list of countries announced already.
We don’t know for sure exactly what kind of an xCloud experience you can expect when running it on Safari using your iPhone/iPad, and we need to wait until Spring 2021 for that.
