Microsoft is really pushing its Xbox game streaming, both with “local” Remote Play as well as cloud gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, previously known as Project xCloud. But while the likes of Google’s Stadia initially aimed from TVs via the Chromecast, Xbox cloud gaming prioritized a more mobile experience. Gaming on smartphones, however, doesn’t always have the same feel, … Continue reading

Given Apple’s rules concerning App Store distribution, there seems to … Continue reading
Earlier this year, Microsoft added Project xCloud gaming streaming to Xbox Game Pass. That roll out came after a long alpha testing period, but even though game streaming is part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate package, it’s only available on Android devices.

Apple has changed the rules.
One month after suggesting its iOS App Store guidelines would bar cloud gaming services like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud from appearing on an iPhone or iPad, the company has now overhauled those rules, telling journalists last Friday that Google and Microsoft’s streaming games are actually welcome after all.
But if you know how cloud game services operate, and then look at Apple’s actual written rules, you’ll see that’s only technically true. If I understand correctly, the reality is one of two things:
Either 1) Apple is asking Microsoft, Google and others to turn their streaming game services into an entirely new category of standalone app which guarantees Apple a profit — a kind of app that’s rarely...

Two consoles, a streaming service, and a lot of promises
Apple issued new App Store rules earlier today, permitting game streaming services like xCloud or Stadia to exist on iOS or iPadOS with a big catch. Apple wants companies like Microsoft to individually submit their games as separate apps using its streaming tech. Microsoft and Google are free to create a “catalog”-style app that collects and links out to all of these individual apps as well.
Microsoft isn’t impressed.
“This remains a bad experience for customers,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “Gamers want to jump directly into a game from their curated catalog within one app just like they do with movies or songs, and not be forced to download over 100 apps to play individual games from the cloud. We’re...
Microsoft's cloud gaming capability is officially coming in September as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It's time to start gearing up.
Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff. Nvidia’s GeForce Now is one of the cloud gaming services that’s cropped up in the last year. While it is cool, we do understand if you don’t want to keep your subscription. Here’s how to lose it. GeForce Now differs from its competitors, like Google Stadia, in that it’s not a gaming storefront. Instead, it connects with the libraries of games you already own and allows you to stream those games to other, non-PC devices.… This story continues at The Next Web
Xbox Game Pass is soon going to be available on your mobile phones.It has all been made possible because of the powerful cloud.Project xCloud officially began progressing two years back (after announcing it in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018), and the company began beta testing with the users in October last year.The company assures that it has the capability to introduce Xbox hits on any mobile or tablet, which will be on par with nearly all other Sony Consoles.Source url:- https://williamsblogpoint.wordpress.com/2020/08/12/xbox-games-pass-will-be-available-on-phones-in-september-2020/
Xbox Game Pass is soon going to be available on your mobile phones.Project xCloud officially began progressing two years back (after announcing it in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018), and the company began beta testing with the users in October last year.The company assures that it has the capability to introduce Xbox hits on any mobile or tablet, which will be on par with nearly all other Sony Consoles.The company developed xCloud while the market saw more and more sales of the Xbox Game Pass that let users subscribe to all console-level games every month.On the contrary, Stadia Pro was preferred by the users because it provided plenty of game options for a much lower price point.Google also allows gamers access to games other than those within the bundle, which is not a feature Microsoft can provide just yet.Xbox announced that they will now be a part of cloud streaming games available for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, beginning from mid-September this year.People willing to play from the huge list of options need to own a Bluetooth controller, a mobile phone with an Android system, and an entirely optional controller clip.
With the release of Project xCloud, players will now be able to play Xbox games on their mobile phone or tablet directly from the cloud.A recent explanation by Apple suggests that Microsoft’s app streaming games will not be accessible on iPhones or iPads at least in the near future.According to the iPhone developers, “Gaming services can launch on the App Store as long as they follow the guidelines that are intended to protect customers and provide a safe platform for downloading apps.”This is where the reason for an anticipated ban lies.Any app which goes on Apple’s App Store has to be submitted individually for review and appearing in charts and search.Whereas, Apple has confirmed that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers access to over 80 games which may not have been through the usual App Store approval policy.Hence, the ban.So, is there a possibility of xCloud landing on iOS anytime soon?However, this requirement by Apple does not seem to be encouraging for Google and Microsoft’s iOS launch plans.For Android users, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is set to arrive in the UK, US, and 20 other countries on September 15 at the price of $14.99 per month.
Mommy and Daddy are fighting again — by which I mean, the big tech companies are fighting over their ventures into mobile gaming. This time, it’s Microsoft, Google, and Facebook are taking Apple to task over its restrictive app policies, which might keep several gamers from playing games on their iPhones and iPads. As you might be aware, several tech companies are trying to get their cloud gaming services off the ground. The conceit is that you’ll be able to play your games anywhere, on any of your devices rather than being bound to one console. Even if you’re not… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple,Facebook,Google,Microsoft
