What you need to know

  • Xbox Console Streaming allows you to play games remotely.
  • It makes your own Xbox One into the server.
  • Beforehand, you needed the service to pass all network tests.
  • Now, Xbox Insiders can test Xbox Console Streaming even if they don't pass all the network tests.

Xbox Console Streaming allows you stream games from your Xbox One to any Android device. You don't need to use Project Cloud. Basically, your Xbox One turns into a local server that you can access games from when you're away. It's just going to play those game and streaming them from your local hardware.

Xbox Console Streaming is only available to select Xbox Insiders, and it was further limited because many Xbox Insiders failed all of the network connection tests. Today, Microsoft decided to remove that restriction and any Xbox Insider can try it out. You can find more details on Reddit.

Keep in mind that you can only stream games to Android devices as of now. It's unclear when iOS will gain this functionality.
