How you can play Xbox with Cloud Gaming on iPhone?

Xbox Cloud Gaming

If you are curious how you can play Xbox on iOS devices. You can follow up on this guide. Your favorite Xbox games can be streamed to your iPhone, iPad, and Windows PCs. This is everything you need to know.

Microsoft announced that Xbox Cloud gaming would be coming to the Xbox Series X, Series S, and last-gen Xbox One consoles after this hands-on was published. Why would you want to stream an Xbox video to your Xbox One? S games without getting a hard-to-find new console, and cloud streaming also means you don’t have to set aside 40GB or more for each game to download and store locally.

Cloud gaming is the future. But it’s not yet here. However, it is one step closer with the availability of many Xbox Game Pass games streaming to iPhones, iPads, and Windows PCs. Xbox Cloud Gaming was released earlier this summer, after months of beta testing. It is still available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate players. Cloud gaming or game streaming is like watching Amazon Prime and Netflix movies or series. Cloud gaming is where the content lives and is transmitted to your screen on a real-time basis. Cloud gaming is more difficult than video streaming because you have to send controller input up the cloud. The remote server then displays the game action and beams the output video back to your screen.

However, just like people don’t download movies full or keep DVDs, game discs will eventually disappear. They are already on their way out and streaming may replace them. Many games can easily exceed 50GB so this can help save time and storage space.

How you can register Xbox Cloud Gaming?

If you aren’t already logged into your Microsoft account, open xbox.com/play and log in to it. Xbox Cloud Gaming can be accessed in browsers on Windows devices. Safari is available on iPhones and iPads. Game Pass Ultimate, a $15-per-month subscription, includes a 100-plus game selection on Xbox and PC.

Choose your games on-screen while using iPad and iPhone

This is a clever idea. Some games have generic controls overlayed onto the screen. Some add buttons specific to the game. It worked well for games that didn’t require split-second timing.

The controls for tablet and phone games have become more sophisticated over the years. This interface feels more basic and less responsive. It’s a great idea, though. Playing Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire on an iPad with on-screen controls, for example, is exactly what I have been longing for.

Microsoft refers to Xbox Cloud Gaming “for Windows 10 PCs, Apple phones, and tablets.” What’s missing? MacBooks and Mac desktops. It worked on both a Mac and a MacBook. Chrome refused to recognize my controller and was unable to launch any games. Safari was more reliable, but still inconsistent. The performance was also less than what I experienced on any of the officially supported platforms.

Performance on both iPads as well as PCs was slow and stuttery. Visuals would blur into digital noise, and controller inputs felt thrown off due to too much delay. The experience was inconsistent even with an internet connection. It was the loading screen delay that was most disappointing. Sometimes it felt slower than playing locally to load levels.

These are the same issues you might have with GeForce Now or Stadia, as well as other cloud gaming services. You can forget that you are not playing on a console or gaming PC when they work at their best. However, the experience remains inconsistent in twitch-based games such as first-person shooters and competitive esports. You can also watch the guide video below!
