According to The Verge, Microsoft has made a preview version of the service available to its employees this week, allowing them to stream Xbox games to their PCs.
The service will work via an Xbox Game Streaming app available in the Windows Store, and requires a wireless Xbox One controller and a Microsoft account.
The PC app will also support streaming games from an Xbox One console locally or remotely, instead of using Microsoft’s xCloud server blades.
There are reportedly a variety of games available for Microsoft employees to test currently, but the app is limited to 720p for the time being, with 1080p streams said to be “just around the corner”.
Microsoft is reportedly working on a feature that will eventually allow users to stream PC games across xCloud. The feature would, in theory, allow users to stream PC games to their Xbox console and play them in the living room.
The ongoing xCloud preview in North America, UK, Korea and Canada currently allows users to stream games to Android devices. However, Xbox has said it will bring xCloud to Windows 10 PCs and “other devices” this year.
It expanded the xCloud public preview with 50 new games in November, while also confirming that DualShock 4 support is in the works.
Following the latest additions, Xbox.com now lists over 80 titles available through xCloud, which will launch in further territories later this year.
In 2020, xCloud users will be able to stream Xbox games they already own from the cloud, as well as Xbox Game Pass titles.
