xCloud is now available to lucky Xbox One X and One S users in many countries.
Unfortunately, in Nigeria users will still have to wait to be able to enjoy streaming games without the need for a console, but for them it is Xbox Remote Play.
The new Xbox beta app is now available on the Play Store and allows all Xbox One S and One X users to play streaming from Android devices, whether smartphones or tablets, using the console as a server. Similar to xCloud, but locally.
How to play on Android devices with Xbox Remote Play
The requirements to play streaming on Android are those already known:
- An Android smartphone or tablet with version 6.0 or higher with Bluetooth 4.0
- An Xbox One wireless controller with Bluetooth support
- A Microsoft account with an Xbox One profile
- Internet of at least 10 Mbps download and 4.75 Mbps upload
- The Xbox beta app
We have already tested the new app and the Xbox Remote Play function, and we discovered that it still has a lot of development work to do, but it is on the right track. At the end of the day it is a beta version.
The ability to play streaming on Android devices is the main novelty of Xbox beta, but not the only one. According to Xbox , the new app was “rewritten from scratch” and makes it easier to communicate with a friend via voice and text, either from the console or PC, and it also makes it easier to share clips and screenshots on social networks.
