Microsoft starts the beta phase for Xbox Cloud Gaming for Windows 10 PC and iOS devices on April 20th. Microsoft is now sending invitations to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members – so access to the beta is exclusive.
As announced last year, Microsoft will bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to more devices. Now that Android users have been able to enjoy it, the beta is now being extended to iOS devices. However, due to Apple restrictions, no app is offered there, only web-based gaming is possible. In addition, the beta version for Windows 10 PC is now starting.
Exclusive invitations are given
Xbox Cloud Gaming is available as an invite-only program to existing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in supported regions. These regions in Europe include Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden. A total of 22 countries are included in the beta test.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership alone does not guarantee access to the beta version by invitation. Microsoft currently only sends out a limited number of invitations. The invitations are tied to an Xbox profile and cannot be passed on or exchanged. The team promises to gradually invite more users and expand the test. The first invitations should be sent out from April 20th. Then the limited Xbox Cloud Gaming Beta for Windows 10 PC and Apple phones and tablets starts via the web browser.
Those invited can then play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles via Edge, Google Chrome or Safari. Those who receive an invite just need a compatible Bluetooth or USB connected controller, or they can use custom touch controls for 50+ games. “In the early stages of beta, our focus is on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across all platforms while making sure the games run optimally,” said Microsoft. So you can be curious.
