Game streaming services are all the rage right now, and the latest to break into beta stages is Microsoft’s xCloud, which lets you stream selected Xbox games to your other devices.

With 50 or so of the best games on offer, is this the easiest way to get Xbox games on your PC?

Can you use Microsoft’s xCloud to stream games to PC?

Short answer: Yes (but not yet)

Okay, so as part of XO19 in London last year, Microsoft committed to bringing xCloud to PC at some point in 2020. That means any day (week or month) now, the floodgates will be opened and you’ll be able to stream games to your PC instead of having to download them. Sweet. Oh, and every game on Game Pass will eventually be part of the xCloud program. That’s freaking awesome.

Until then, you can still get in on the xCloud preview program which recently got expanded to iOS devices as well as Android ones.

What do you think? Plan on trying out xCloud or are you already playing in the beta? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
