Project xCloud: Streaming service now for iOS


of André Linken
Microsoft has now released the trial version of the project xCloud streaming service for iOS platforms. However, there are currently some restrictions to consider. Among other things, only one game is available with Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

While the test phase of the project xCloud streaming service has been available on many other platforms for some time, iOS fans have been left empty-handed – until now. Because Microsoft has now given the go-ahead for the preview version of Project xCloud on the iOS platforms. However, there are still some minor, but important, restrictions here.

So far, the preview version is only available to users in the USA, Canada and Great Britain. Microsoft has not yet revealed whether and when other countries will follow. However, we assume that, among other things, German fans will be able to get started in the foreseeable future. Furthermore, the number of participants in the current test phase is limited to 10,000. Xbox Console streaming is also excluded from the preview because the focus is solely on Project xCloud. Also worth mentioning: The Halo: The Master Chief Collection shooter collection currently only has one title available for the test run. However, this could change in the near future.

Furthermore, a device with iOS version 13.0 or higher is required, which must also be capable of at least Bluetooth 4.0. A Bluetooth controller is also a requirement. Incidentally, the test stations are allocated according to the motto "first come, first served".
