Microsoft announced Wednesday that it will open its Project xCloud preview for iOS devices and that the preview is already full. The preview was made available to 10,000 testers through Apple's TestFlight program. Since Microsoft released the preview for Android phones, iOS users eagerly awaited its launch on Apple's mobile platform. It should be noted that the preview is only available in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Project xCloud is a video game streaming service that allows users to instantly stream PC and console games on a variety of devices. You do not need to download the games you want to play, but they will be transmitted directly from Microsoft's own servers.
There are some differences between iOS and the preliminary Android version of Project xCloud released earlier. The iOS TestFlight preview, at this time, is not compatible with the Xbox console transmission (Preview). There is only one game for players to try, which is & # 39; Halo: The Master Chief Collection & # 39 ;. Microsoft says this was due to the policy of the Apple application store.
The preview was made available through invitations that were sent in order of arrival, since the Windows manufacturer had anticipated a great demand. Microsoft also says that because there are limited spaces in the TestFlight program, they can go through registrants for testing purposes. This means that there may still be the possibility that you participate in the preview.
IOS users who want to try Project xCloud must have a Microsoft account associated with their Xbox gamertag. The iOS device they are using must have iOS 13.0 and Bluetooth version 4.0. They will need an Xbox One wireless controller with Bluetooth. Microsoft recommends an Internet connection with a bandwidth of 10Mbps and also a 5GHz connection if you use Wi-Fi.
Microsoft aims to collect feedback from the community to improve service for iOS customers so that it can offer a complete preview to more users.
