Microsoft has rolled out a new Xbox One update that introduces support for cloud gaming on the console, allowing users to stream Xbox Series X|S-quality games on the aging console. This feature is currently only available for testers, however.
The October 25 update for Alpha Skip-Ahead users added cloud gaming support on Xbox One, a console originally released in 2013 and very underpowered compared to the Series X|S. The feature was already made available on Xbox Series X|S for testers in the Xbox Insider program, which is free and open to everyone to enroll in.
Xbox Cloud Gaming allows users to stream a selection of Game Pass titles to their console. While the quality isn’t always perfect, and it can fluctuate depending on the strength and consistency of your connection, it’s a nice option to try out a game without needing to download it. Microsoft says downloading a game to your hard drive will offer the best experience, however.
With this new feature, it means Xbox One owners can not only stream Series X|S versions of Xbox games, but also new-generation exclusives that Xbox One owners wouldn’t otherwise have access to on that console.
The same October 25 update made it easier to stream to Twitch . These updates are available now for testers before Microsoft rolls them out for everyone at a later date.
As mentioned, you can join the Xbox Insider program and enroll your console in one of the testing rings for a chance to try out updates before they are released for everyone.
As for Xbox Cloud Gaming, it remains in beta, but Microsoft has high hopes for it. The company has a bold ambition to reach 3 billion gamers worldwide , and thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming, everyone with a smartphone is a potential customer, in addition to PC and console.
