Microsoft has announced the launch of xCloud and Xbox Remote Play cloud video game services through the Xbox app for Windows devices so that users can enjoy full gaming experiences, even if the capabilities of the devices they are using are modest.
The idea of Microsoft’s cloud-playing services is based on playing games on the company’s servers directly, and then the games are played and broadcast to the user’s device, regardless of their capabilities in terms of data and graphics processing, according to what the company published on the official Xbox blog.
Microsoft had made its xCloud service available on users’ devices via Internet browsers but in the form of a standalone application that works directly across the desktop, greatly improving the experience.
The provision of Remote Play for Windows devices is also a major addition, as it will make it easier for gamers to broadcast the games they play on Xbox devices, such as Xbox Series One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, to Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices when it is officially available so that they can follow the game freely anywhere.
And in order for the user to enjoy the new services, he must have a device running Windows 10, a game controller that works with “Bluetooth” or supports working with a USB-C port, as well as a subscription to the Microsoft Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service.
