xCloud Streaming Service by Microsoft is Set to Start in October This Year


Over at the E3 press conference, Microsoft has announced that it plans to bring its Project xCloud streaming service in October. While the details of the service are still quite vague, we do know that it will let us play Xbox titles across multiple devices.

The service is going to be a subscription-based streaming service that will allow you to play Xbox games on multiple devices such as your mobile devices. Currently, we have no idea what the pricing of the service would be and the games that it would provide for players.

At the E3 2019 press conference, Phil Spencer teased a new feature called Console Streaming, which is going to let you turn your Xbox into a Project xCloud server. In addition, he also adds that it is going to be free as long as you own the console.

Two months ago we connected all Xbox developers to Project xCloud. [The service will] turn your Xbox One into your own personal and free xCloud server.

On team Xbox, every decision is guided by the belief that gaming is for everyone. This is why we keep innovating hardware and services, and it’s why we’re uniting communities through cross-play.

So in October, Microsoft’s xCloud will be going head to head with Sony’s PlayStation Now and Google’s Stadia cloud streaming service. Google had recently revealed its own streaming service that will launch in November for a $10 monthly subscription. However, that is not a full subscription, as you will have to pay for the games that you want to play.

Google’s Stadia will allow you to play high-end games on a more powerful cloud service. It had previously showed its capability when it allowed fans to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey via Google Chrome in its test phase.
