After recently adding cloud gaming support to the Xbox app on Windows 10, Microsoft today announced the introduction of cloud gaming to the Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One consoles later this year. The Redmond Giants unveiled at the Gamescom 2021 Xbox showcase.
With support for cloud gaming on the console, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to find over 100 high-quality games in their Xbox Game Pass library and play them right away. You don’t have to wait for the game to be installed on the console or occupy valuable memory.
In addition, for online multiplayer games like Sea of Thieves, players can join the fun as soon as they are invited by a friend. In addition, you can use cloud services to enjoy Gen 9-only titles such as Microsoft Flight Simulator and The Medium on incompatible devices such as Xbox One. However, the latter will be added to the console in the future.
Therefore, once cloud gaming support begins in the Xbox Game Pass library, players can look for games with the cloud icon and start playing wirelessly. In addition, to ensure high quality gameplay, players can enjoy cloud-enabled games at 1080p and 60FPS.
In terms of availability, Microsoft has announced that it will begin testing the console cloud gaming experience this fall with members of the Xbox Insider program. This feature will be open to the public during the holiday season.
