Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate comes with a feature that allows gamers to stream Xbox games onto devices like Android phones or tablets. Oddly enough, this option was not given to those on PC, even though Microsoft also owns the Windows operating system, but there is some good news on that front.
According to a report from Thurrott.com, it appears that Microsoft has already begun internally testing out the streaming feature for PCs. The report claims that Microsoft has rolled out the feature to a large group of users inside of the company itself, which the publication says is the largest group of cloud gaming beta testers to date, at least for the PC version.
What’s interesting about this is that Microsoft is testing out the service through browsers like Chrome and Edge. This does away with the need to have a dedicated separate app and will make it more accessible to the masses. The concept will also be applicable to mobile devices like the iPhone, where it gives Microsoft a chance to bypass Apple’s restrictions regarding streaming services as it would be playable through Safari.
There is no specific date mentioned regarding the availability of the service on PC or iOS, but Microsoft is targeting the spring 2021 timeframe.
