Accessibility & Performance
Xbox Cloud Gaming has been designed in such a way that hundreds of games from the Xbox Game Pass library will be available to a wider range of gamers via a web browser. Xbox Series X hardware powers the service at the moment.
For faster loading times and frame rated Microsoft is working on their data centers. To offer lower latency, the company is offering streaming at 1080p and 60fps which seems suitable to play games smoothly on any platform with a decent 10 Mbps internet connection.
“To ensure the lowest latency, highest quality experience across the broadest set of devices, we will be streaming at 1080p and up to 60fps.”
Furthermore, the subscription is now available in 22 countries, and soon will be available to other regions as well.
However, the feature isn’t a free-to-play option. To use Xbox Cloud Gaming, you’ll need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. The cost will be $14.99 per month. Not to mention, new users can get a 3-months free trial for $1, says Microsoft. Check more about subscription and membership here – xbox.com/play
