Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) on Console Begins Releasing to Insiders Starting Today!

Play with cloud gaming on your console – no installs required.

With Game Pass Ultimate, you can now play games on your console without installing. 

We’re beginning to flight cloud gaming today on your console for a random subset of Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha Insiders. We will be expanding to more Insiders and additional rings over time.

Cloud gaming on your console reduces your time to the fun and allows you to quickly jump into online multiplayer sessions with your friends by letting you play Xbox Game Pass games without having to wait for an install. Plus, save space on your hard drive! To get started, navigate to Xbox Game Pass on your console and look for games with the cloud icon.

If you’re looking for a full list of supported games, go to My Games & Apps>Full Library>Xbox Game Pass and set the filter to “Cloud gaming” to explore.

Next, click the “Play” button with the cloud icon and get to gaming. It’s as simple as that!
