We all are surrounded with so many devices with displays and want better inter-connectivity in them. Buying and using apps, games and services on all our devices anywhere still got a long way to go. Microsoft to make these service better has announced “Project xCloud.”
Project xCloud is Microsoft’s new game streaming service to provide users to stream Xbox games on consoles , PCs, and mobile device. Microsoft is working on this service from a while. All existing and future Xbox games will be compatible with Project xCloud. That means you’ll be able to play console-quality games on your phone from the actual console.
“We are testing Project xCloud today,” the company wrote in a blog post. “The test runs on devices (mobile phones, tablets) paired with an Xbox Wireless Controller through Bluetooth, and it is also playable using touch input. The immersive nature of console and PC games often requires controls that are mapped to multiple keys, buttons, sticks and triggers. We are developing a new, game-specific touch input overlay that provides maximum response in a minimal footprint for players who choose to play without a controller.”
Currently, Project xCloud supports 4G and 5G cellular networks,and uses Microsoft Azure, the company’s cloud computing service, as part of the stabilization process. Trials for this service will start from 2019. Google just recently announced their own game streaming service, called Project Stream. They will also have to compete with NVIDIA GeForce Now and PlayStation Now.
