XBox Game Pass Cloud Streaming

«134

Comments



  • i actually just checked there myself, the streaming app is now offline so i imagine they will just update the gamepass app soon enough




  • Yeah I was in the beta and it wasnt live when I tested the app and the gamepass app this morning.

    Hopefully sorted later today.




  • Got it working - its actually the app called Xbox Game Pass (Beta) with a white icon.




  • Gamepass app has updated now for me, cloud section is there

    Just played a bit of Minecraft Dungeons with the onscreen controls over 4g, worked brilliantly tbh

  • i had to go in into the play store and start the update manually




  • Tried it out there with an Xbox controller paired to my OnePlus 7 Pro hooked up to a USB-C monitor, works pretty well. Resolution not the best now but it was definitely playable.




  • Ok just got resi 7 going with my razer kishi and its quite frankly gamechanging.

    Who even needs an xbox?




  • Me and my brother share game pass ultimate. It's on his account but my Xbox is his home so we both have it.
    I'm guessing he'll be the only one able to use Xbox cloud service?

    Yeah, you're right. The Game streaming is only for the account that actually has Game Pass Ultimate - I've seen a few people on reddit with the same question.

  • I tried it on wifi, 2.4ghz. Forza was a bit choppy. I know they recommend 5ghz. Will probably try over 4G tomorrow. I had to manually update the Gamepass app to get access.

    Was this your phone or your Xbox on 5ghz? Does it stream from your own Xbox at home or not?

    I've only tried it at home and it was extremely laggy, we've 100meg download and 20up




  • It was my phone on 2.4ghz wifi network. I've streamed locally from my Xbox to my laptop before. That works well, although the xbox has a wired powerline connection to the router.




  • Played it on my tv last night on my Nvidea Shield it was flawless, mind you it was on a wired connection.




  • I wouldn't have the best internet wifi speeds at all ( 20-30 mbps ) but I was playing a couple of hours of Gears 1 last night and I was amazed. Runs choppy for the first 30 seconds or so but absolutely flawless after that. Its blown PS now out of the water for me personally. Even running on a wired connection its always been a laggy, horrible experience. Hats off to Microsoft on this one.




  • Played a bit of Minecraft Dungeons with touch controls on the phone... They work surprisingly well.




  • Tried Minecraft too and pretty good. Over 500mb... But translates to 50mb over WiFi.

    But i hate Minecraft.




  • I played a few hours of state of decay over last few days using a dual shock 4. Works great, it's a game that doesn't require precise movements like Forza or a fighting game. Very impressed with the tech. I think it'll really shine if/when they put it on the console so you can try a game before committing to installing it or playing the first level/tutorial while the game downloads.

    Edit: playing over wifi with around 300mb down




  • More news on this, specifically that it's coming to iOS and PC in spring next year. The iOS workaround seems to be to make it browser based, meaning that they don't have to go through Apples ridiculous certification.

    Some other news in here too, mainly about usage figures for Game Pass.

    If you spot any preview program for PC, will you let us know Cat? :)

    Same here. Had a game of Enter the Gungeon, and the audio was pretty rough. Early days on it though, very exciting. It's also a webapp, so I've already "installed" it on my taskbar, this is going to be incredibly handy for when my kids demand to watch Paw Patrol.




  • Best of luck!
    Hope I get an invite!
    I downloaded the beta app for Win 10, but as I'm not in the preview, I can only stream from console.
    The cool thing about that is, if your Series X is off, you can stream from it, without it appearing to come on :)




  • I got the invite too but it doesn't seem to work. Was just going to load it to see the games available. Will give it a proper try this evening.

    Wait, do you mean you can currently stream from your xbox even without the new game pass app? What app do I need exactly?

    I thought this was taken away with the series x, I had presumed because it was going to be part of xcloud streaming. Really missing streaming to my pc, especially when working from home (for quick breaks of course!)

    Yeah, there's a preview app out there and the below video shows how to get the installer from the MS store site.
    Just follow the instructions, very simple.
    Once you're in the app, there's xcloud streaming side is the same as visiting xbox.com/play on a browser. You won't be able to play, unless you have an invite. But there's also a console streaming side, that'll connect to your Series X to stream, like the old xbox app used to do for xbox one's :)





  • Got my invite yesterday. I have a work laptop that's locked down when it comes to installing stuff so this is brilliant for me. Was able to start RE:7, play through the first two hours will no problems or noticable lag and then continue on my Xbox in the evening.

    It's incredible tech.

    I tried it out on my laptop last night. Worked very well to be fair.
