Xbox Cloud Gaming beta arrives on iOS and Windows PCs

Microsoft has revealed that it will begin inviting “select” Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to try the Cloud Gaming beta on iPad, iPhone and Windows 10 PCs starting on April 20th. You’ll need to use Chrome, Edge or Safari rather than a native app, but you can use custom touch input if you can’t play with a Bluetooth or USB gamepad.

The feature was previously only available for Android smartphones and tablets. But the beta expands the game streaming to the Windows and iOS. Invited players will be able to stream the games on a browser, including Edge, Chrome, and Safari. All they have to do is visit xbox.com/play, where they’ll get access to over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles.

“In the early stages of the beta, we’ll be focusing on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across platforms, while making sure games are running their best,” Microsoft said in the announcement.

The company plans on sending out more beta invites over time to gamers in the US, Canada, and 20 other eligible countries. “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,” the company added.

However, you’ll need a Bluetooth or USB-connecter controller to play some of the games. Over 50 other titles in the catalog also feature touch-based controls. The other requirement is an internet connection with at least a 10Mbps download speed.
