Microsoft’s game streaming service Project xCloud is now live for preview. Xbox’s Phil Spencer announced that the public preview is live and that the invitations are going out right now. With Project xCloud, you can play AAA games on your phone without the need to purchase an Xbox One.
Moreover, games like Gears 5, Halo 5 Guardians, Sea of Thieves, and Killer Instinct are offered during the initial preview phase. In order to use Project xCloud, you will need an Android device running Android 6.0 or above with Bluetooth 4.0 support.
”Public preview is a critical phase in our multi-year ambition to deliver game streaming globally at the scale and quality of experience that the gaming community deserves and expects, Its 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,” said Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s cloud gaming chief.
The trial is currently for cloud-based gaming and will not allow you to stream games from your own Xbox to Android. Further, the company has also developed partnerships with T-Mobile in order to optimize xCloud for mobile networks.
