Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming, known by many as xCloud, allows you to stream select Xbox titles to your phone or tablet. On the tablet side of things, it's only available on Android right now. Luckily for those that want to game on the go, the best tablet for Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming is on sale ahead of Black Friday. You can grab the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e for $350 (opens in new tab), which is $50 off its normal price.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is a budget-friendly Android tablet with a beautiful 10.5-inch AMOLED display. It pairs that display with solid speakers, making it a good choice for streaming games on the sofa or around the house. The tablet weighs under a pound, which you'll barely feel if you carry it around in a bag.

The Galaxy Tab S5e isn't as powerful as newer options like the Galaxy Tab S7 (opens in new tab), but it's much more affordable. Remember, the processing power of Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming comes from the cloud, not your tablet, so it's not as important to have the latest processor inside a streaming device. As long as it supports the service, has a good screen, supports Bluetooth, and gets a solid internet connection, it'll work just fine, and the Galaxy Tab S5e checks all those boxes.

  • Is there news for if/when XBox Cloud Gaming will be coming to Windows? A bit odd I can't utilize Microsoft's Surface for Microsoft Service.
