Microsoft has announced the availability of the Xbox game streaming service from the Xbox console to Android Phone to more territories. The service was initially launched in the USA and UK.
Thus essentially, people who have Xbox console and own a game can play games on their Android mobile phone. This is unlike Google Stadia where games are installed and run on the cloud. This is much more similar to Nvidia’s Game Streaming service where PC can stream the game to mobile devices.
What is Xbox Console Streaming?
Xbox Console Streaming lets you play owned and installed Xbox One games on an Android smartphone or tablet. This also supports Xbox Game Pass titles which is a great way to play lots of games by paying $4 per month.
