Game streaming has become tremendously famous especially in 2020. With the major part of the population spending their days working from home. People are looking for digital platforms to seek entertainment.
During this pandemic, the gaming industry has seen a boom in the market. Streaming giants like Xbox and Stadia has seen a growth in their popularity.
Microsoft is releasing a new Xbox app for android devices. This includes the ability to remotely play Xbox games streamed directly from the console.
The cloud gaming service of Microsoft was launched in 2017 and has been a destination of more than 10 million gamers. Microsoft’s Project xCloud is the most exciting and famous cloud gaming service currently available in the market.
Its cloud gaming technology helps the users play games without having to use the device hardware on any platform. This can be done without having to upgrade the system.
However, this service is different than Microsoft’s xCloud service.
Along with game streaming, the new Xbox app for android has been updated with a new design. This contains the latest changes that will come with the new dashboard coming with Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
The next-gen console includes a new share button, and the updated Xbox app will compliment that. The app will notify the users about a successful capture. The users can then upload it quickly to their social media platforms.
The new Xbox app can be used to configure the settings of the Xbox consoles which will be releasing in November. You can install games using the apps directly to your console, manage a game library, and can even free up the storage space. An added bonus is that users can even remote control the Xbox console.
Unfortunately, the cloud gaming service is not available for Indian gamers as of now. But the good news is that Microsoft has its cloud servers in India. So it’s only a matter of time before Indian gamers get to enjoy the cloud gaming service of Microsoft.
The App is currently in beta version and is available for android phones and tablets. Currently, it’s only Android exclusive which means that iOS users will have to wait for a little to get their hands on the new Xbox app. However, with the App store’s current policies regarding game streaming services, its highly unlikely that Microsoft will release its cloud service app anytime soon.
