An initial look at the XCloud game streaming service for Windows devices


Microsoft began testing the game streaming service (xCloud) for computers running Windows 10 this week, and the software giant made available a preview version, which allows you to broadcast Xbox games to the computer, to all of its employees.




According to a new report, The Verge was able to obtain exclusive screen shots of how (xCloud) works on computers, and Microsoft developed the Xbox Game Streaming application for Windows 10, which will be available in the Windows Store.




The app requires a joystick (Xbox One) that is connected via Bluetooth, a Microsoft account, and a fast internet connection, just like the Android and iOS versions, and the computer application supports streaming games from the (Xbox One) platform locally or remotely, instead of using xCloud servers from Microsoft .




There are a variety of games available for Microsoft employees to test, but the application's ability to broadcast is currently limited to 720p, and internal company feedback notes reveal that this internal preview version works at 720p and 1080p.




The experience is very similar to what is available on Android and iOS, including the user interface and the way to access and broadcast games, and it is clear that the experience appears to be ready for testing on a large scale, and Microsoft may soon introduce it to external Xbox platform testers.




The company also updated servers (xCloud) to include eight platforms (Xbox One S) in one server, after the server previously included four platforms (Xbox One S).




Microsoft is now converting (xCloud) servers to a more powerful next-generation (Xbox Series X) processor capable of playing four game sessions (Xbox One S) simultaneously on a single chip, and also includes a new software embedded video encoding six times faster than The current external software that Microsoft uses on existing (xCloud) servers.




Microsoft is committed to launching (xCloud) this year, with support for the controller (PS4), and the software giant plans to integrate (xCloud) with the (Xbox Game Pass) service later this year, allowing players to broadcast games directly from the private cloud subscription service With the company.
