Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Now, the subscription not only unlocks access to many games but also includes the cloud service available on Android.
From September 15, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will receive integration with the cloud gaming service and will launch on Android. By downloading a separate application from the Galaxy Apps Store or the Google Play Store and subscribing, gamers will be able to run Xbox games on their Android smartphones. Microsoft is promising subscribers will receive over 100 games, including Minecraft Dungeons, Forza Horizon 4, and Destiny 2.
Of course, it all works thanks to the power of cloud computing. Dedicated servers will handle graphics and other processes, and the picture will be transmitted to the smartphone over the network. At the same time, everything will work both via Wi-Fi and LTE.
The launch is planned for 22 markets: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Great Britain, and the USA.
