Back in 2018, Microsoft announced that they would be dipping their toes into the game streaming market with an upcoming service known as Project xCloud. This is where users can stream Xbox games onto pretty much any device. The service was later launched in preview where gamers on Android could participate in it.
If you do not own an Android device but would love to check out xCloud, you’re in luck because Microsoft has since announced that they will be extending its streaming service to iOS devices, like the iPhone and iPad, where gamers can participate in it through Apple’s TestFlight platform which is for apps that are in beta.
However, there is some bad news because due to the limitations of Apple’s TestFlight program, the preview will only be limited to 10,000 testers. We imagine that this will be far less than the number of people who want to take the service for a spin, but Microsoft does plan to rotate the beta testers, meaning that eventually some testers will be booted out of the program to make room for new ones.
According to Microsoft, “As noted earlier, there are limited spaces available, so for testing purposes we may need to cycle through registrants in order to best utilize the available testing audience. This also means that even if you miss out on the initial allocation, you might receive an invitation to participate later in the preview.” For those who are interested, you can sign up to participate here, but you might want to hurry as spaces are limited.
