But there is no concrete date yet.
Phil Spencer reveals via Twitter that Microsoft will use the xCloud wants to bring streaming service to PC and console in the long term. The streaming service has been available for Android since last month, but platforms may be added in the future.
xCloud is currently already included in the Game Pass Ultimate subscription and allows you to stream dozens of games to your smartphone or tablet. According to Spencer, that functionality will also come to PC and Xbox in the future, although that is currently ‘not the highest priority’.
Yes, we want to do this. It’s in the long list of cool things the xCloud team is working on, just a bit further down the list. But we want console and PC players to be able to browse as easily as mobile players, it’s a good gamepass feature.

Microsoft has been investing heavily in the Game Pass subscription since last year. This will be the case later this year EA Play added to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Investing further in streaming would be a logical next step to turn Game Pass into a fully-fledged ‘Netflix for games’.
