Microsoft is working in-house to finalize its Xbox game streaming app for Windows PCs. This enables access to streaming games from the company’s xCloud service.
American online magazine The ledge Xbox for Windows has managed to gain access to the latest version of the game streaming app, yet the undeclared and thus unmanaged app. After the app is released, you can run both of them Xbox series X And from the S console as well as xCloud.
With the current companion app, it is not possible to stream games from two new Xbox consoles on Windows PCs. On the other hand, the new app will solve this problem and will also bring XCloud streaming to Windows PC for the first time. The xCloud app has improved a lot compared to last year.
The Xbox Remote Play feature works similarly to existing console companion apps for connecting to Xbox consoles. You can remotely control the Xbox console, log in and play games no matter where you are.
The new app now offers full touch support, allowing you to play Xbox games from your Surface or other touchscreen models without a controller. Microsoft is also preparing a form of gyro support here, but it is still in beta stage.
Apparently Microsoft is also working on a 1080p stream instead of 720p, instead of 720p which currently exists. This will certainly improve the experience on Windows PCs before high resolution becomes possible, when Microsoft upgraded its XCloud server with Xbox Series X hardware.
It is not yet clear when this app will be fully available. Rumor has it Microsoft im März ein “What’s New for Gaming” – Remove the Plant – We can hear more about the company’s xCloud plans soon.
