What you need to know

  • Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android, also known as Xbox Cloud Gaming, is live now on Android.
  • In order to play, you'll need a compatible Android device, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription and a controller.

Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android, also referred to as Xbox Cloud Gaming, is now available. If you've got a compatible Android device, a controller and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can start streaming games in 22 countries.

To get started, you'll need to download the Xbox Game Pass (opens in new tab) app and sign into your account that is subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It's compatible with some different controllers, though the Xbox One Wireless Controller remains the best controller for Xbox Game Streaming. With everything set up, you can stream games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5, Ori and the Will of the Wisps or Yakuza 0.

In total, the full list of every Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android game is over 150 titles long. More will be added in the months ahead, as EA Play is joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at some point in Holiday 2020, meaning some EA titles will be available to stream.

  • I hope Rocket League joins! I'd love to take a dump on other players and on the toilet!
  • Rocket league is leaving game pass in a couple weeks.
  • Has anyone figured out how to do Console Streaming? It was in the xCloud app but isn't an option in the Game Pass app as far as I can tell.
  • I think that's coming later.
  • It looks like I can still do it from the Xcloud app, has this changed?
  • It didn't change. You can still use the Xcloud app for Xbox Console Streamong.
  • Yeah, I was just hoping it'd have been integrated into a general availability app before xCloud launched. Maybe it'll be integrated into the new Xbox app?
  • Get the onscreen controls working on Duo and we'll talk
  • 😂 They are available as of 16 Sept 2020.
