Xbox Cloud Gaming was first available on PC in June. When it first came, the cloud streaming service was only available via the web browser. But recently, Microsoft has announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available in the Xbox Windows app.
Players will now be able to launch the Xbox Cloud Gaming from the same Xbox app used to launch Game Pass games and browse. If you are an Xbox Insider member and have a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, the Xbox Cloud Gaming beta is available in the Xbox app.
However, this streaming service is only available in the 22 countries in which it has launched. The list of the countries are as following:
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
- United States
Currently, the Xbox Cloud Gaming does require a Bluetooth or USB controller, but there are plenty of games that are suited to PC controls as well. Players are also required to join the Xbox Insider program to be able to check out the Xbox Cloud Gaming beta in the Windows app.
