Xbox Games Will Be Played on Android Phones

TEKNOKU.meĀ – Microsoft has just introduced Xbox Console Streaming for Android phones. As the name implies, through this application Xbox users will be able to play the game they have via an Android cellphone via a streaming mechanism.

But do not imagine this application will work like Google Stadia which does not require additional consoles. Because to play games via Xbox Console Streaming, users still need the Xbox One console.

The way Xbox Console Streaming works is arguably more similar to PS4 Remote Play. Users only move the game medium from the console to the cellphone.

This feature is only available for the United States and the United Kingdom (UK) only. Even then, only users who have registered on the Xbox Insider program can try it.

To play Xbox games via Xbox Console Streaming, the Android cellphone that is used must be equipped with an Android 6.0 operating system.

The required internet connection must be fast enough to be able to minimize lags or intermittent movements. The recommended minimum connection is 10 Mbps download speed and 4.75 Mbps upload speed.

It should be noted that users can turn on and play Xbox One remotely, the “instant-on” option on the Xbox console used must be on.

In addition, because this application is still in the testing phase, there are still a number of bugs such as responses that are a bit late to the error of the control function. Xbox One users who want to try can download it via the following link.

In addition to Xbox Console Streaming, Microsoft is also actually working on the xCloud game streaming service.

This service is similar to Google Stadia where users simply subscribe to the service every month and provide a fast internet connection to be able to play high-quality games on Android devices.
