Xbox are bringing their cloud gaming service to Windows 10 PCs and iOS devices, the company officially announced. Starting tomorrow, Xbox will begin sending out invites to Game Pass Ultimate members for testing.

Just like they announced at the end of last year, Microsoft are bringing their cloud gaming service to more devices. In the official announcement today, the company announced that cloud gaming will be available on Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers very soon.

Starting tomorrow, Xbox will be sending out invites to select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to start testing the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for the abovementioned devices. Xbox promise over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles, which will be playable through web browsers like Edge, Google Chrome or Safari. Check out the official page here.

Xbox say that during the limited beta test, they will send out more invites on a continuous basis to players across all 22 supported countries for even more feedback that will help them improve the experience and add support for more devices.

"We’ll be focusing on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across platforms, while making sure games are running their best."

Those who receive an invite will need a compatible Bluetooth or USB-connected controller to play games.
