Xbox Cloud Gaming Now Available to All XGP Ultimate Users on PC; Quality Upped to 1080p@60FPS

Submit

On the same day it officially released on iOS (bypassing Apple's Store thanks to a Progressive Web App based on Rainway technology), Xbox Cloud Gaming also became available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users on PC.

Just like the iOS implementation, the PC one is also based on browsers, though Microsoft previously confirmed the intention to add Xbox Cloud Gaming directly into the Xbox app. On PC, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can use Edge or Chrome to get started here.

Xbox Cloud Gaming Finally Comes To iOS With Streaming Xbox Series X, Backbone Support

This means there are potentially hundreds of millions of low-specced PCs that could now access games that have much greater requirements than their system could manage. The streaming quality has also been upped to 1080P@60FPS, thanks to the upgraded Xbox Series X blades, though that remains one step below Google Stadia which allows 4K, HDR, and 5.1 support. Microsoft did promise it'll add more features to the service going forward, though, which leaves us hopeful the gap will be closed eventually.

Here's a list of the games currently playable on Xbox Cloud Gaming, according to Windows Central. It's huge, to say the least.

Do note that that Xbox Cloud Gaming availability is currently limited to 22 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Additionally, these are Xbox versions of the games. For example, when playing Elder Scrolls Online you will be playing on the Xbox servers since there is no crossplay (unlike the Stadia version, which has crossplay with PC).

Of course, as a reminder, while PC and iOS are the latest arrivals to Xbox Cloud Gaming, Android is also available. The recommended bandwidth requirements are 10Mbps minimum with a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection.
