xCloud beta will return to the iOS platform in the second quarter of 2021, Microsoft has confirmed.
In Spring 2021, we will take the next step in our journey to reach more players around the world by making cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available on Windows PCs through the Xbox app and browser, and iOS devices through mobile web browser.
The browser-based solution will allow more devices to access the game streaming service.
By adding over a billion devices as a path to playing in the Xbox ecosystem, we envision a seamless experience for all types of players, whether it’s playing Minecraft Dungeons with your Xbox friends using touch controls on an iPhone, or jumping into a Destiny 2: Beyond Light strike on a Surface Pro when you have a break between meetings.
The update also confirmed that a number of countries will leave the xCloud Preview Program and enter the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Cloud Streaming program in Spring 2021.
Finally, we’ll bring cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to new markets, including Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico, where we recently began our limited Project xCloud preview program.
We'll keep you posted on xCloud beta on iOS when more is known.
