Microsoft’s Project xCloud is now open for preview, letting players stream console-quality games to their Android device through the cloud.
If you want to test out Microsoft’s new game-streaming service Project xCloud, now is the time to register so you can start streaming console-quality games to your phone or tablet.
All you need is a compatible device running Android version 6.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 or greater, a Bluetooth capable wireless Xbox One controller and a decent Wi-Fi connection.
If you’re interested, follow this link to the Xbox website, where it will guide you through the steps necessary to register for the preview service, and where to download the Xbox Game Steaming App.
You will not need to own an Xbox One console or any games for this preview service, as Microsoft will be adding a selection of games to the Cloud for you to play and discover. No waiting for downloads, just pick your game and stream it directly to your device through your Wi-Fi connection.
Project xCloud is different to the Xbox Console Streaming service, which requires an Xbox One console plus already purchased games to stream to your device.
There will only be a limited number of available spots in the Project xCloud Preview, so there’s no guarantee that your application will be successful, but where’s the harm in registering? Apply and get all the details you need here on the Xbox website.
