Xbox Cloud Gaming Beta Begins For iOS and Windows 10 Tomorrow

While Apple and Microsoft disagreed about the service arriving on the App Store, it appears that Microsoft has opened up the ability for iOS and iPadOS users to enjoy cloud-based gaming via the device's web browsers, specifically Safari.

Meanwhile, Windows 10 PCs will support the tech through Safari, Google Chrome, or Microsoft's own Edge browser.

In a post from Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President and Head of Product on Project xCloud, she explains that "the limited beta is our time to test and learn; we’ll send out more invites on a continuous basis to players in all 22 supported countries, evaluate feedback, continue to improve the experience, and add support for more devices."

Both Windows PC and iOS users will be able to connect their Bluetooth controllers to be able to play.

The news comes just weeks after Xbox announced backwards compatibility for cloud gaming, bringing multiple generations of Xbox titles to the Cloud, and adding touch controls for some.
