    Microsoft is bringing xCloud to Windows PCs through its Xbox app today. Xbox Insiders will be able to access a new updated Xbox app with Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) built in. Much like how xCloud works through the web, you’ll just need a compatible controller connected via Bluetooth or USB to access Xbox games from a Windows 10 PC.

    The updated Xbox app will include a new “cloud games” section, with access to all of the same games available on xCloud on the web. “We’ve also added some new features to help you get started, including easy-to-access information on controller and network status, social features to stay connected with friends, and the ability to invite people – even those also playing on cloud without the game installed – to join you in a game,” says Jason Beaumont, a partner director of Xbox experiences.

    Xbox Insider testers will be able to access the new Xbox app in 22 different countries through signing up to the “Windows Gaming” preview in the Xbox Insider Hub app. Cloud games will then be available in the Game Pass section of the app, allowing you to resume Xbox games that were started on a console or in the cloud.

    This new Xbox app also includes the ability to stream games from a local Xbox, allowing you to power on and off a console and play your games streamed from your own Xbox.

    If you’re not an Xbox tester, you can still access xCloud over at http://xbox.com/play, and Microsoft will likely bring this full experience to the Xbox app on Windows in the coming months.

    Smh…

    I have 300mps internet and my clips won’t even load. That wouldn’t be a problem if I didn’t get banned from downloading clips. For whatever reason, messaging someone that they are bad at a video game is a sin, so they banned me from messaging, saving clips, and joining parties. Kinda annoying the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. They should have banned me from messaging people and that’s it. No reason I can’t save a clip or join my friends party. I also am annoyed at other things. I’m very glad I can see my stats and my friends stats, but I cant see them side by side. I have to go back and fourth to see how much ahead of my friends I am. I also can’t change my name. I used to be able to change my account name in the settings, but they removed that feature and the Microsoft website doesn’t let me either. So my name is always going to be the same. Last complaint is the look of the app. It’s pretty plain. It’s not in 4K or anything. Not a huge deal but it would make me enjoy it more. My rating is gonna be 2 stars until they fix at least one of these things. 💚

    New Update...

    This app USED to be good. Key words being "used to." Before the latest update, the xbox app was really good and I had very few issues with it. Ever since the new update, I have absolutely HATED using this app. Obviously this is my opinion right now, but I hate almost every single thing that has changed (and a bunch of my friends agree.) First off, the app takes longer to load in than it used to. Second off, the whole messaging / chatting with others is awful. Sending messages can be delayed a lot and sometimes not even send. You can't send pictures anymore. And also, if you have notifications on, it'll glitch over and over and over again whenever someone messages you (meaning even if you are on a chat with someone currently texting each other, whenever they text you, a notification will buzz at the top of ur screen.) This glitch is only fixed if u reload the app, and even then, after a few minutes of texting, the notification buzzing will still show up again. Another thing I hate is the online / offline thing. I don't like how when you are on a chat with someone, it says they are offline, even if they are actually online. It only says they are online on the home screen, which is very annoying. Honestly, the only thing I do like about this update is our captures all in one area.

    Obviously this probably won't happen, but I feel like this app would be way better if the update was just taken off, and the app was reverted back to its old state.

    Good concept, but incredibly broken.

    The Xbox app is amazing the first time you see it. You can access you account on the go and do so many things. However, the app’s downfalls become apparent very soon. First of all, you need a wifi connection to access the app, it will not work with cellular data. So, the whole aspect of xbox on the go is completely thrown out of the window. Secondly, you’ll be very luck if you can actually use the app. For at least one week out of the month the app just doesn’t work. You try to launch it, but you are met with either a blank green screen or a n infinite loading wheel. I’ve tried restarting, redownloading, and even costumer support, but nothing can fix it. Over time it will just fix itself and one day you’ll try to launch the app and it will just work for no reason just as suddenly as it stopped working. My final issue it the built in keyboard. Xbox has a wonderful system that detects the keyboard on your xbox and allows you to type on your phone. This is great for multiplayer games with a chat system. However, like the app itself this feature is very spotty. Sometimes the keyboard on the app will just stop popping up and it won’t ever pop up for the next week to month. Then it will just magically fix itself again. There are also tons of little bugs that litter that app that at sometimes, makes the app completely unusable. The Xbox app definitely doesn’t deserver the 4.7 out of 5 that it currently has.

    How To Play Xbox Games On PC (2021)

    Xbox (app)

    Software

    The Xbox app is an app for Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11, Android, and iOS. It acts as a companion app for Xbox video game consoles, providing access to Xbox Live community features, remote control, as well as second screen functionality (formerly branded as SmartGlass) with selected games, applications, and content.

    On Windows 10, the app additionally serves as a launcher for PC games installed on a device (including games obtained from Microsoft Store, Bethesda.net, Steam, GOG.com, Epic Games Store, Humble Bundle, Battle.net, Origin and Ubisoft Connect), and provides access to the system's screen recording functions. During E3 2019, the existing version of the Xbox app for Windows 10 was renamed Xbox Console Companion, and a new Xbox app was introduced in beta—which is geared more specifically towards PC gaming, and serves as the client for the subscription service Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

    Features[edit]

    Through the app, users can access their activity feed, Xbox Live friends and messages, manage their party, watch saved Game DVR clips, browse OneGuide, and view their achievements. Some games and apps can provide second screen integration via the app, displaying supplemental content. The app can also be used as a remote control for the console.[3][4]

    The Windows 10 version of the app allows users to stream games from an Xbox One console over a local network, and has the ability to view and edit Game DVR recordings from an Xbox One console. It also serves as a front-end for a PC version of Game DVR on supported hardware (Game DVR settings were moved to the Settings app on Windows 10 version 1703),[5] and has a library display for games installed on the device, such as those obtained via Microsoft Store, Bethesda.net, Steam, GOG.com, Epic Games Store, Humble Bundle, Battle.net, Origin and Ubisoft Connect.[6][7][8]

    Support for Xbox Cloud Gaming as well as Remote Play from Xbox consoles was added to the app on September 14, 2021.[9]

    History[edit]

    The original logo of the Xbox One SmartGlass app

    Xbox 360 SmartGlass was originally announced at E3 2012, for Windows 8, Android and iOS. Microsoft demonstrated use cases for the new app within both games and entertainment, including a minimap for Ascend: New Gods, a second screen experience for School of Rock with supplemental content, and Game of Thrones (with interactive maps and family tree diagrams).[10] With the release of Xbox One in November 2013, Microsoft released an accompanying Xbox One SmartGlass app for Android, iOS, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone, which contained more extensive functionality for controlling the console.[11][12]

    Windows 10 introduced a revamped version of SmartGlass referred to simply as Xbox, which notably added a library display for PC games, and the ability to stream games from an Xbox One console on a local network.[13] On June 12, 2016, the mobile versions of the Xbox One Smartglass apps were updated for parity with the desktop version, and renamed "Xbox" as well.[14] Xbox 360 SmartGlass was not updated and was discontinued in May 2018.

    The mobile apps were updated alongside the Xbox One's May 2019 software update, adding cross-platform status indicators to friends.[15]

    On June 9, 2019, coinciding with Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference, Microsoft released a new Xbox app in beta exclusively for Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903), which has a redesigned interface, and serves as the client for Xbox Game Pass on PC.[16] In advance of the conference, Microsoft rebranded the existing Xbox app on Windows 10 as Xbox Console Companion.[17]

    Xbox cloud streaming is now available in the Windows app

    Microsoft announced on Monday that its cloud streaming service, Xbox Cloud Gaming, is playable in the Xbox Windows app starting today. Xbox Cloud Gaming first became available on PC in late June, but only via web browser. Now you can launch it from the same Xbox app used to browse and launch Game Pass games.

    The Cloud Gaming beta is available in the Xbox app if you're an Xbox Insider member and have a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. You also have to live in one of the 22 countries that the streaming service has launched in so far, which currently includes the US, Canada and UK, but not Australia.

    Cloud Gaming currently requires a controller connected via Bluetooth or USB, but hopefully at some point in the future it will also support mouse and keyboard. There are plenty of games on Game Pass like Grounded or Sea of Thieves well-suited to PC controls.

    The games are streamed at 1080p, 60 fps from data centers running customized Xbox Series X hardware, and the biggest draw is that they can load up your save file from whatever Microsoft device you've previously played on. If you've blasted halfway through Doom Eternal on Game Pass on your desktop, for example, you can now stream it from the cloud to a laptop in the Xbox app and pick up where you left off.

    Remember you'll need to join the Xbox Insider program to check out the new Cloud Gaming beta in Windows. Microsoft hasn't said how long its streaming service will stay in beta, but it's currently only available in about half of the countries Microsoft offers Game Pass, so it still has a ways to go. 

    Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter and Tested before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games. When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old RPG or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
