Now Microsoft is announcing that the beta test is over and that the feature will be available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers in the next few weeks. Barring any other sudden policy changes from Apple, this potentially means the game streaming service’s official arrival on Apple’s mobile devices. It also means that Xbox will cover even more devices than Stadia, especially since the latter is only available on select Android phones.
Last April, Xbox announced the beta testing phase for Xbox Cloud Gaming on web browsers. To be clear, Stadia already works on Chrome, including on macOS, and compatibility is a hit or miss with other Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge and Vivaldi. What makes Microsoft’s announcement important was explicit support for Safari, the official web browser on Macs, iPhones, and iPads.
This Xbox Cloud Gaming tidbit was actually only a small part of Microsoft’s big Xbox Game Pass announcements. That included its switch to Xbox Series X consoles on the backend, promising even better performance. The more ambitious revelation, however, is its commitment to bring a new first-party game to Game Pass every quarter, which would put it way ahead of the competition, presuming it is able to keep up with that schedule.
