Xbox Series X | S and One: consoles test cloud games in beta via Game Pass

The Cloud Gaming feature is coming to the Xbox One, Series X and Series S consoles in beta through the Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Xbox Cloud Gaming continues to expand. Still in beta, the service is now coming to the Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox One game consoles. At least that’s the case for members of the Xbox Insider program.

In fact, those interested in the Alpha Skip Ahead channel see the cloud gaming option added to their Game Pass Ultimate subscription to play games without installing them on their consoles. However, keep in mind that even for Insiders, implementation will be gradual. This allows Microsoft to correct things more effectively if a problem is detected.

Look for the cloud in Game Pass

Microsoft highlights the fact that the cloud gaming option allows faster access to games to participate “in online multiplayer sessions with your friends by allowing you to play Xbox Game Pass games without waiting for an installation.” “Plus, you save space on your hard drive,” says the Redmond firm. For Xbox One owners, this also allows access to next-gen version games, without swapping their console for a new one.

If you are a member of the Insider program, you can search for games with a cloud icon in the Game Pass dashboard on your Xbox Series S, Series X, or Xbox One.

Let us remember in passing that the Cloud Gaming function has also landed (still in beta) on PC through the Xbox application for Windows 10 and Windows 11. It already exists on Android, Mac and via the web for iPhone.

The Xbox Insider program provides access to updates and new features ahead of Xbox One. Here’s everything you need to know.
