Microsoft has released a beta version of the Xbox app for iOS, which allows you to remotely play games on your iPhone from an Xbox game console.
Yesterday thematic resource TheVerge announced that such an opportunity will appear soon. And so, this one happened. The official launch of the beta version of the Xbox app for Android and iOS has been announced by Xbox Senior Project Manager Harrison Hoffman.
To access the beta of the Xbox iOS app, you must join the TestFlight testing program. The number of beta testers is limited and now the recruitment is closed, but you can register and hope for the vacated seats of inactive participants.
The app supports iPhone, iPad and iPod with iOS 8 or later. Xbox for iOS allows you to stream your Xbox purchased games, which is consistent with Apple’s existing policy. You can also remotely install games on a console, participate in chats, share game videos and screenshots, and much more.
Unlike the xCloud service, where games are streamed from the cloud, the application allows you to play games that the user has downloaded to their console. Streaming via the Xbox app does not require an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
