Play Anywhere, Now On More Devices
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members have another reason to cheer. Recent rumors suggested the systems powering Xbox Cloud Gaming were being upgraded. Today, Microsoft confirmed that change. The service is now powered entirely by the Xbox Series X. That means when you stream a new game, you’ll be streaming the best version of it. That’s great news for fans looking forward to big games later this year like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5.
That’s not the only news today however. Until now, the only consistent way to access Cloud Gaming was via Android phone. In some regions and on some devices there were more options but it was inconsistent. Today though Microsoft are allowing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to stream through a browser on Windows 10 or Apple Phones and tablets in 22 countries.
Not only can you use a variety of controllers to play, but Microsoft continues to add touch options for phone play to more games. As of this writing 73 games now support this option, including big hits such as Yakuza: Like A Dragon, Gears 5, and many more.
If you’re on a device that can read this there’s a strong chance you can play right now with a membership. If you want to check it out through a browser just go to https://www.xbox.com/en-US/play. This is available via Microsoft Edge, Chrome, and Safari.
With so many games coming, there’s going to be a lot of excuses to play over Xbox Cloud Gaming. That’s on top of the more than 100 games available now. You can check out our recent coverage of upcoming Game Pass titles to get ready. Then check out a new trailer for all play options below.
