Microsoft Streaming Service Set To Become Available To Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subs In September

It looks like owners of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate have something to look forward to, with Microsoft revealing that they plan to allow users access to their new streaming service, currently named xCloud, in September.

Showcased and tested on phones already, xCloud looks set to rival services like Stadia, allowing users to play a wide range of Xbox titles on their phones and tablets.

Currently, the service is only available as part of a preview that you can sign up for here, however, the reveal by Spencer means much more is on the way!

Revealed by Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox Division, in an interview with The Verge that you can read here, Microsoft apparently plan for the feature to roll out to users “for no additional cost” in September, meaning they will be able to stream Game Pass titles to a phone or tablet.

Aiming to bring xCloud to “every screen that some can stream games to” in time, Spencer said that he was eager to bring the service forwards in the next few years, even potentially renaming the streaming service in the near future.
