Xbox Game Pass Subscribers Get Cloud Streaming Features on Android Phones

Xbox Game Pass subscribers can soon enjoy playing Xbox games on their Android smartphones. Microsoft recently announced that the gaming service will have xCloud cloud technology support, which means players can stream their game collection straight to their smartphones.

Project xCloud VP Kareem Choudhry made mention that entertainment should be readily available in different scenarios, including the mobile. With cloud gaming, users can bring their Xbox profile and experience with them, as well as their saved games, controller settings, achievements and friend list.

xCloud streaming support should be available starting September 15. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will need to have an Android smartphone or tablet to use the feature. Additionally, Microsoft says they will be partnering with third party hardware manufacturers like 8BitDo, PowerA, NACON and Razer to create phone mounts and controllers for an improved mobile experience.

XBox Game Pass costs $14.99 a month and offers a selection of 100+ games subscribers can play.
