Microsoft Xbox is expanding the availability of its cloud gaming services with more ways to access the cloud. In parallel with this movement, the company upgrades your servers from Xbox One S hardware to Xbox Series X technology. This means that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can now experience next-gen gaming whether they are playing with a console, Windows 10 PC or a smartphone or tablet. To access Xbox Cloud Gaming, you only need to play xbox.com in a supported browser. This includes most modern browsers such as Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. If you are an active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate customer, you can start playing games now without downloading anything extra.
This goes for PCs, but this browser-based approach is especially important for iOS gamers because Apple continues to ban competitors from streaming games from the App Store. Xbox Cloud Gaming continues to work through Android’s Xbox app. However, you also get the benefit of Xbox Series X Extended Blade Server. “We’ve upgraded Microsoft Data Centers worldwide with the fastest and most powerful Xbox hardware to give you faster load times, improved frame rates and a new-generation gaming experience.” Director Catherine Glockstein said Xbox Cloud Gaming Product Description.
“We will be streaming up to 1080p and 60fps to ensure minimum delay and maximum quality experience across a wide set of devices. In the future, we will continue to add and add new features to enhance your cloud gaming experience. Microsoft’s next step is to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to their original consoles. It has announced plans to do so later this year and will allow Xbox One owners to play next-gen exclusive like Starfield in 2022 and beyond.
