The Cloud Gaming of Xbox Game Pass it is only an option on mobile devices, but for Microsoft the goal seems to be another. xCloud for now it only works on mobile devices. Even if you are an Xbox Game Pass member on PC, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X, you won’t actually be able to stream games on these devices.

However, it turns out that this was only a matter of priority for Microsoft. The Xbox boss, Phil Spencer, answered a question on Twitter from a fan, explaining that the company is trying to make xCloud possible on PC and consoles as well, but not in the short term. “Yes, we want to do that,” Spencer said, referring to the ability to stream Game Pass games to devices other than smartphones. “It’s on the long list of cool stuff that the xCloud team is working on, in the items below. But we want console and PC gamers to navigate as easily as mobile gamers, it’s a good Game Pass feature.”

It is understandable why the cell phone takes precedence in this case. Someone with an Xbox console has less need to stream games than someone who primarily uses a mobile device without access to a dedicated gaming device. Choosing to bring everything to PC, however, has the added benefit of allowing millions of laptops and other non-gaming PCs to access the Game Pass library.

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.
