Apple devices getting Xbox Cloud Gaming beta

Today, Microsoft has announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be getting invites to test out Cloud Gaming on select Windows 10 PCs and Apple mobile devices from tomorrow.

This is the next step in Microsoft's plan to "bring Xbox to more players on more devices via the cloud this year."

Xbox Cloud Gaming on Apple Devices

Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President & Head of Product at Project xCloud, said "Starting tomorrow, we’ll begin sending out invites to select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to start testing the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers."

Therefore, anyone who's subscribed to the service should keep an eye on their emails for an invite to test out the service on the new devices.

Invites are being sent out "on a continuous basis to players in all 22 supported countries," so you may have to wait a little to get an invite of your own. They're also not guaranteed.

If you get an invite, you'll be able to play via Edge, Google Chrome, or Safari on your device by heading to xbox.com/play.


Then, all you need is "a compatible Bluetooth or USB-connected controller or can use custom touch controls for more than 50 games to start playing and testing."

There's hope you'll be able to test out Xbox Cloud Gaming soon even if you don't get an invite to the recent round of tests.

Gluckstein said, "our plan is to iterate quickly and open up to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in the coming months so more people have the opportunity to play Xbox in all-new ways."

All you can do is keep your fingers crossed that an invite pops up in your inbox soon.
