Xbox Cloud Gaming is starting to roll out on Xbox consoles

Microsoft has begun rolling out the ability to play games via Xbox Cloud Gaming on Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S consoles, Microsoft announced on Wednesday. The feature requires a Game Pass Ultimate subscription and will be available in 25 regions "coming soon with Brazil," according to Microsoft. But you might not have access to the feature right away, as Microsoft says it will roll out to "a subset of Xbox gamers with our November release" in supported markets and "in the coming weeks." Will be done.

Cloud gaming on Xbox consoles can have many useful applications. You can use it to try out or demo the games available on Game Pass without having to download them completely. If a friend sends you a multiplayer invite for a game you don't have installed, Xbox Cloud Gaming will let you stream the game so you can jump right in.

And if you have an Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming will actually let you play some next-generation exclusive games like Recompile, The Medium, and The Riftbreaker on your last-gen console. Microsoft Flight Simulator isn't available yet, but Microsoft says it will be added to its cloud game library in early 2022.

Xbox Cloud Gaming (formerly Project xCloud) arrived in invite-only beta on iOS and PC in April, before a wider expansion to all Game Pass Ultimate customers in June. Xbox cloud gaming integration on the console was first rolled out to Xbox Insider in September.

News of Xbox Cloud Gaming on consoles comes during a busy week for Microsoft. On Monday, the company surprised-launched Halo Infinite Multiplayer, added 76 new games to its backwards compatibility library, and brought an FPS boost to some cloud gaming titles and more Xbox Series X/S titles.
