Microsoft’s Project xCloud will stream Xbox One games to phones, tablets, and more
Back in June, during the Xbox E3 2018 press briefing, Xbox head Phil Spencer announced that cloud engineers were building a game streaming network that would be capable streaming console-quality games on any connected device. Microsoft has been hinting at such a platform for quite some time, but on Monday, the company officially announced Project xCloud, giving us a glimpse at a service that will begin public testing next year.
As Microsoft explains, there are billions of gamers all over the world, but not all of them own or are even interested in owning gaming consoles. The only way to reach as many people as possible is to give them the ability to play games on whichever device they happen to use, be it a phone, tablet, or computer.
