Microsoft will soon make it possible to play Xboxes remotely using the iPhone. The other day streaming games became available to all Android users.
About the upcoming innovation told the thematic resource TheVerge. According to the source, Microsoft will soon release the appropriate update of the Xbox application for iOS.
The main innovation will be the ability to strip games on the Apple smartphone from the Xbox One console, and in the future – and with the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.
You will be able to access the set-top box both via Wi-Fi and LTE or 5G cellular networks. The application will allow you to “take control” of your home set-top box, including turning it on remotely. Also iPhone users will be able to quickly download or share game videos and screenshots made on the console, as well as manage the space on the Xbox and delete games.
Unlike the service xCloud, where games are streamed from the cloud, the application allows you to play games that the user has downloaded to his console. To use streaming through the Xbox application does not require a subscription Xbox Game Pass.
