Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service is coming to Android on Sep. 15

Recently, Microsoft revealed that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be the vehicle for Project xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud gaming streaming service. The service will launch for real on September 15, 2020, with over 100 games straight off the bat.

Unlike Google Stadia, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate doesn’t ask you to purchase games on its service. Instead, xCloud is giving you access to an evolving library of first and third-party games, with the promise of all Microsoft Xbox Game Studios games joining the service either on launch or soon after.

Today, Microsoft revealed some more details about how the service rollout will work, and it’s broader than expected. Project xCloud will launch as part of the Xbox Game Pass app on Android, hitting 22 markets out of the gate. There’s still no word on when Project xCloud will hit iOS, but we expect it’s Apple’s draconian app store rules that is holding up the process there. If you’re an iOS user, it might be worth grabbing one of the best Android tablets for Project xCloud to play instead.

The confirmed launch markets are as follows: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Project xCloud is how Microsoft aims to reach beyond console to bring more gamers into the ecosystem. Thanks to Xbox Game Pass, Project xCloud is by far the best-value cloud streaming service on the market, outstripping the library offered by PlayStation Now, and decimating Google Stadia’s purchase model. It remains to be seen whether it takes off and goes mainstream, but no other company has a better chance at achieving that right now.
