Microsoft has rolled out Xbox Cloud Gaming to Windows 10 PCs and Apple iOS devices for all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

In a new post on Xbox Wire, Microsoft has officially announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available via a web browser on Windows 10 PCs and Apple iPhones and iPads. The service – which is already available via Android devices – is open to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members as part of a monthly or annual subscription.

The launch coincides with the move to upgrade the service’s data centres to Xbox Series X hardware. The result for consumers is a next-gen experience, albeit at a maximum 1080p resolution, with frame rates up to 60fps.

In the post, Catherine Gluckstein, vice president & head of product, Xbox Cloud Gaming, says:

“Today marks a key milestone in our journey to bring the Xbox experience to all gamers, and we can’t wait for you to begin playing. I remember about three years ago, the first time I picked up a phone and played a cloud game, using nothing but touch controls. It’s a moment I’ll never forget, where the beauty of the graphics mixed with the creativity of technology to create something truly magical. So, from Team Xbox to you, we hope you experience more joy and connection through gaming anywhere and everywhere.”

To support play on iOS devices, a range of compatible controllers are also available, including the all-new Backbone One (pictured above) and the Razer Kishi Universal Gaming Controller.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
