Microsoft has released a beta version of the Xbox app for iOS, which allows you to remotely play games from the Xbox game console on your iPhone.
A week ago, the TheVerge thematic resource reported that this feature will soon be available. And here it is. The official launch of the beta version of the Xbox application for Android and iOS was announced by the Senior Project Manager of Xbox Harrison Hoffman.
To access the beta-version of the Xbox application for iOS, you need to join the testing program TestFlight. The number of beta-testers is limited and now the set is closed, but you can register and hope for the vacant seats of inactive participants.
The application supports iPhone, iPad and iPod with installed iOS 8 and newer versions of the operating system. Xbox for iOS allows you to stream user games purchased for Xbox, which fits into existing Apple policy. You can also remotely install games on the console, participate in chat rooms, share game videos and screenshots, and much more.
Unlike the service xCloud, where games are streamed from the cloud, the application allows you to play the games that the user has downloaded to his console. To use streaming through the Xbox application does not require a subscription Xbox Game Pass.
