Project xCloud is Microsoft's game streaming service that's still in the preview phase. The service has dozens of games, many more than its rival Google Stadia, and uses less bandwidth to deliver a good experience.
A few days ago, Microsoft confirmed that Project xCloud was coming to Windows 10. Well, it looks like Xbox head Phil Spencer is testing out the app at the moment. A Reddit user by the name of "An Xbox Dude" captured a screenshot of Spencer using the xCloud app on PC.
It's unclear what the visual quality will be on PC, but I imagine it'll probably start off at 720p and 60 frames per second (FPS) during preview. Hopefully, Microsoft will increase the image quality to 4K by the time Xbox Series X rolls out.
