Microsoft Lets More People Into the xCloud Preview

Posted on October 18, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 8 Comments

Microsoft launched the public preview of its cloud game streaming service xCloud earlier this week. The company opened up the initial preview to the public on an invite-only basis, and it’s now inviting more people to the preview.

Microsoft says the company has received “great” feedback on the initial preview of xCloud, so it’s letting in more people into the preview. The company sent out more invites to the preview to users who registered for the preview, so if you were chosen to be part of the preview, you should have received an invite via email already.

The company said it will roll out more invites in the coming weeks. Do keep in mind that xCloud is only available in the United States, United Kingdom, and Korea for the time being. The initial preview is also only available to Android devices running Android 6 or newer. You can register here.

    I just clicked the register link out of curiosity, but I was shocked to see the required data speed. It says only 10 mb down! That's incredible!
