Microsoft announced today that the Xbox App for Windows 10 (and later) PCs now support streaming capabilities for Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox Remote Play.

Back at the beginning of August, Microsoft announced that the insider version of the Xbox App would support the ability to stream games directly to your Windows computer, without the need of going to in your browser.

This feature worked incredibly well, and with that, it is now becoming available for non-insiders!

Play games through the cloud!

With the latest Xbox App version, you will be able to launch games directly from the cloud, if they are supported, on your Windows machine. You are required to have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

With the latest app version, when you open your Xbox App, you can click on the "Cloud Gaming" button. This will bring up a list of all the currently available games to play in the cloud. All you need to do is select the one you want to play and launch it!

Play games from your home console

Alongside Xbox Cloud Gaming, you will be able to stream games directly from your Xbox console at home.

Using Xbox Remote Play, you can now stream games from your Xbox Series X|S or any generation Xbox One over the internet to your Windows PC. This will allow you to bring your console experience directly to your computer, giving you access to your full catalog of games, your Xbox settings, and being able to interact with your friends!

Remote Play supports the ability to play your games at 1080p/60FPS and will allow you to play select Xbox 360 and Xbox original games.

If you are interested in trying out Xbox Cloud Gaming or Xbox Remote Play, head over to the Microsoft/Windows Store and download the Xbox App!
