Microsoft, this morning through a blog post announced that that cloud gaming platform with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is coming to both PC and iOS by the spring of this year that is 2021.
Previously also the company announced something. The company said that in October that it was going to work on bringing Xbox cloud gaming to PC and iOS. Along with this it also cut short the project testing in iOS back in the month of August when the Apple app store was the reason it could not bring the gaming service to iOS. But neither here nor there, Apple is soon going to provide this service through the Safari browser instead of the iOS App Store.
Further, the next step in the journey is to reach more players around the world just by making cloud gaming as a part of Xbox available on Windows PC through the Xbox application or the browser. Whereas iOS devices are going to have this through a mobile web browser. At the moment, cloud gaming via Microsoft’s ecosystem is something that is very much compatible with android phones via the Xbox game pass mobile application and this is going to be available from Google Play Store and Galaxy Play Store.
However, the company is soon going to launch its cloud gaming service in Australia, Brazil, Japan, and Mexico that too for the first time. Microsoft is the company that has recently started a limited project preview in all of the above-mentioned locations. Ergo, there are also going to be pitfalls when it comes to cloud gaming bandwidth and data usage, but this shows that cloud gaming is still there to stay.
