Microsoft’s Project xCloud preview extends to iOS devices

Microsoft has announced the Project xCloud preview is now also available for iOS devices. Previously, the preview was only available for Android.

Project xCloud remains in preview for now, with plenty of beta-testing needed before it fully launches. If you have signed up to be a tester, you will have access to a library of games that you can play on different devices.

This doesn’t extend to your full Xbox One digital library yet but there are plans for that to happen in 2020. But today, Microsoft has confirmed that a key step to its full launch is taking place with the Project xCloud iOS release.

The good news is that Project xCloud will be available on iPhones or iPads running iOS 13.0 or greater and also Bluetooth version 4.0. Gamers will also need a Bluetooth-enabled Xbox One Wireless Controller to use Project xCloud on iOS.

While a full launch is likely still months away, Project xCloud is slowly turning into a solid service. Compared to Google Stadia, Microsoft has been smart about not overpromising on features like 4K output and has instead worked to make the platform work as best as it can at 720p first.
