Microsoft is working on its game streaming project xCloud for some time. Now today Microsoft provides a demo of the project and reveals future plans for the xCloud. Project xCloud, a service that will let you stream Xbox One games to computers, phones, and tablets.

During Microsoft’s Inside Xbox event last night, Microsoft gave a demonstration with Forza Horizon 4 which was hosted in a data center and streamed to an Android phone attached to an Xbox One controller via Bluetooth. But in the demo, Forza looked rather good and seemed to run pretty well; at least as good as any high-fidelity native Android mobile game or a Nintendo Switch title.

“We’re developing Project xCloud not as a replacement for game consoles, but as a way to provide the same choice and versatility that lovers of music and video enjoy today. We’re adding more ways to play Xbox games. We love what’s possible when a console is connected to a 4K TV with full HDR support and surround sound – that remains a fantastic way to experience console gaming,” Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s gaming cloud chief said.

“Anywhere we have a good network connection, we’ll be able to participate in Project xCloud,” he further added. Choudhry didn’t specify how fast said connection would need to be, but it’s likely a speedy connection will be required, whether it’s over WiFi or 5G, when the latter rolls out.

Apart from Microsoft Google is also working on its game streaming service.
