How To Use Cloud Gaming On Xbox One & Series X/S | Screen Rant

Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S systems, though there are a few caveats to their use. For one thing, the player will need to have a fast Internet connection to make the most of it, especially for fast-paced games, as the slower the Internet speed, the more the game will stutter.

The Xbox Cloud Gaming service is available on smart devices, as well as on PC, and it has been added to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S today. Xbox Cloud Gaming allows the player to stream many Xbox Game Pass titles on their system. This will let Xbox One players play Xbox Series X/S exclusives on their system. It will also give players the chance to dive straight into games, without needing to wait for lengthy install times to finish. It will also be easier than ever to jump into a game and test it out, without needing to waste time downloading it.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is only available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Those with a subscription can now use the service on consoles. There are a few steps that need to be taken and some limitations that need to be known about, before Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S users can make the most of streaming on their systems.

In order to use Xbox Cloud Gaming on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S systems, a system update is required. It cannot be used until the latest firmware update has been applied. Once the update is finished, all games that can be used with Xbox Cloud Gaming will have a small cloud symbol on the bottom right of their icon. The cloud symbol won't appear if the game is installed to the player's system. Once the game is uninstalled, the cloud symbol will appear on the icon. If the game is installed, then it cannot be played through cloud gaming.

In order to use cloud gaming, the player needs to find the game they want to play on Xbox Game Pass. If they click on the game's icon, then a tab labeled "Play" with a small cloud symbol should be present next to the Install icon. Selecting Play will boot the game through Xbox Cloud Gaming and it will create a tab amongst the recently played games on the Dashboard, allowing the player to boot it up from the system menu, rather than needing to go through the Xbox Game Pass app again.

It bears mentioning that a game cannot be streamed at the same time as it's being installed, but another game can. This means the player can't play something like Hades through Xbox Cloud Gaming while it's being installed to the hard drive, but all other games can be played. Playing a game through Xbox Cloud Gaming will pause the installation, however, and it won't resume until the streaming session has ended.
