Microsoft is bringing Xbox Cloud Gaming to the Xbox app on Windows 10 PCs for Xbox Insiders. Another perk for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, this delivers another way to access over 100 high-quality Xbox console games directly on Windows, through the power of the cloud.
According to Microsoft, Xbox Cloud Gaming in the Xbox app will allow gamers to turn all types of PCs into gaming devices. This can be a brand-new budget computer or older laptops and tablets. All that’s required is to be an Xbox Insider, and have a compatible controller via Bluetooth or USB, and the latest version of the Xbox app. You can then click the “Cloud games” button in the Xbox app, and select games to start playing.
For all that, Microsoft did add some features. These include easy-to-access information on the controller and network status, social features, and the ability to invite people to join a game. Again, this is only available for Xbox Insiders at the moment. If you’re not an Xbox Insider, you can still play Xbox games on your PC via web browser by going to xbox.com/cloudgaming.
