In a new blog post from Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox confirmed that the service will be added at no extra cost for subscribers.

Xbox Game Streaming Coming To Game Pass Ultimate

As per the blog, players will be able to stream over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles to a phone or tablet.

"When Halo Infinite launches, you and your friends can play together and immerse yourselves in the Halo universe as Master Chief—anywhere you go and across devices."

It almost sounds too good to be true, especially given the way Google Stadia has stumbled out of the blocks.

Speaking of Stadia, it looks as though Microsoft has been taking notes from Google's product. In a new interview with The Verge, Phil Spencer discussed the possibility of being able to click a link and jump straight into a game.

“We want that trial to be as easy as it is in music and video today, where I can send you a track in Spotify today and you can stream it instantly,” Spencer explained. “Over time, anywhere I see a game I should be able to give it a try.”
