Microsoft’s Xbox Game Streaming app has suddenly arrived on the Google Play Store, just in time for Project xCloud.
With Microsoft’s upcoming video game streaming service just about to start public testing, the company has already uploaded the service’s Android application.
Titled Xbox Game Streaming (Preview), Microsoft’s new Xbox application will allow users to Steam Xbox One games to their Android device.
While iOS support will be arriving for the revolutionary gaming service, Microsoft is currently using Android for its first public testing.
“Play Xbox games on your Android phone or tablet with the Xbox Game Streaming app,” the application’s description reads. “Stream over WiFi or your mobile network. Enjoy console-quality games like Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves directly from the cloud with Project xCloud (Preview). Or, stream Xbox One games installed on your console with the Xbox Console Streaming (Preview).”
“Project xCloud (Preview) is invite-only. Initially a limited number of games will be available, with more to come over time. Access to games in Project xCloud (Preview) ends when the Preview ends.”
The application’s features are as follows:
- Stream Xbox games to your Android phone or tablet
