While Apple has relaxed the restrictions on game streaming apps and services on iOS devices, it is still quite restrictive in terms of what developers need to do in order to get a streaming app authorized to be listed on the App Store. This is why many have since found a workaround which is by using Safari.

This is an approach that Microsoft is taking and the good news for iOS gamers is that if you are keen on playing Xbox games through your iPhone or iPad via streaming, Microsoft has announced that the public beta for its xCloud will be kicking off tomorrow. However, if you do want to participate, you will need to have an active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

According to Microsoft, “The limited beta is our time to test and learn; we’ll send out more invites on a continuous basis to players in all 22 supported countries, evaluate feedback, continue to improve the experience, and add support for more devices. 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.”

This public beta isn’t exclusive to iOS devices and will also be available to those gaming on Windows 10 PCs and will be playable through Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Safari.
