Microsoft's xCloud Gaming Service Will Bring Console Games to Mobile

On October 8, Microsoft officials said via a blog post that "Project xCloud" would be available to external testers some time in calendar 2019. Anyway, the public preview won't launch until next year and we should learn details more about Project xCloud in the coming months.

The service is part of the stream-based future Microsoft hinted at earlier this year at E3.

Microsoft has pulled back the curtain on its work-in-progress game streaming technology, Project xCloud.

Announced via his website's blog, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Kareem Choudhry revealed Project xCloud, the service that's meant to allow gamers to be able to stream games across all Microsoft platforms. The idea is that you can play the games on any device of your choosing, without having to pony up the money for a worthy machine.

Project xCloud actually seems contradictory to Xbox's interests in a few ways.

"Our vision is for gamers to have access to the same content via game streaming that they do on other platforms, without any additional work required by the game developer", the spokesperson said. Our focus is on delivering an unbelievable added experience to existing Xbox players and on empowering developers to scale to hundreds of millions of new players across devices. Our goal with Project xCloud is to deliver a quality experience for all gamers on all devices that's consistent with the speed and high-fidelity gamers experience and expect on their PCs and consoles.

Microsoft has announced that it has developed custom hardware in its data centers to ensure the xCloud service is compatible with all existing - and future! Participants are able to use touch controls or sync an Xbox One controller through Bluetooth.

To combat latency, Microsoft will utilize 54 Azure locations that support 140 countries.

Project xCloud will have the capability to make game streaming possible on 4G networks, Microsoft says. Microsoft claims that xCloud is now running at 10 megabits per second, which is mid-range download speed for phone carriers such as Verizon and AT&T that offer 4G LTE. The company promises a console-like experience on all devices.
