Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to enjoy Project xCloud beta access starting tomorrow. The game streaming service will allow Xbox Game Pass subscribers to play games from their libraries on multiple devices from home or on the road.

Starting this September, Project xCloud will allow you to enjoy over 100 games from your Xbox Game Pass library. Project xCloud has been on the minds of many gamers ever since the service was announced in October 2019. However, the service has been removed from iOS's App Store due to some policy reasons.

Microsoft is also pushing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as its primary subscription service, and it has been quite successful in doing so. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate now also includes Project xCloud. It also became very apparent that Microsoft is throwing its net far and wide, catering to the entire gaming community rather than creating a secluded ecosystem.

Project xCloud's beta app will be available on Google Play Store starting tomorrow. The beta version of the app will allow players to test a small lineup of anticipated games that will be available in the final product. The beta will be discontinued on September 11, a few days before Project xCloud's official launch.

Microsoft's game streaming service is indeed an ambitious attempt to please the portable gaming market and it is also seen as an answer to Google Stadia. Currently, Project xCloud's major competitor is Nintendo Switch, but each of these brands offers a different library of games.

Additionally, we can also assume that the initial launch will come with a bunch of issues, as was the case with similar streaming services and games. The beta access should give Microsoft the necessary data to refine the streaming experience in the final product. Sorting out major bugs and performance issues will certainly help the company to have a stronger position in the portable gaming market.
