Microsoft Game Pass is official. Now you can play Xbox titles on your Android
After several months of testing, Microsoft finally decided to officially launch the final version of its cloud gaming subscription service, Game Pass. This is the service that will allow you to play Xbox and PC titles directly on your Android smartphone / tablet.
We are currently going through times of great change in the world of video games. Where new console releases have strong competition from a new generation of cloud gaming services.
Similar to what we saw happening with Google Stadia and GeForce Now, Microsoft’s service (formerly known as Project xCloud) has the main objective of being able to play console / PC titles anywhere.
For that, you only need a smartphone, tablet or even a Smart TV with Android operating system.
This is a service you should consider
Microsoft Game Pass is presented quite differently from its rivals as it is integrated into the already popular Game Pass Ultimate subscription service. With it, you will have access to more than 150 games for Xbox and PC.
Costing just € 12.99 per month, you can now play any of these games directly on your smartphone, anywhere, as long as you have a stable internet connection.
It’s also worth noting that it was recently confirmed that games included in EA Vault will also be added to the list.
How to take advantage of Microsoft Game Pass on your Android:
Install the Game Pass app via the Google Play Store (or APK if it is not yet “compatible” with your smartphone) Have an active Game Pass Ultimate subscription (know more here) Log into the app with your Microsoft account details Pair a bluetooth controller with your Android smartphone / tablet / box (for example Xbox One controller) Once you open the app, you will have access to the full list of games, in which many of them already have the option to play “through the cloud” active
In case you want to take advantage of your Android Box (for example Xiaomi Mi Box) you will actually need to install the APK as it is not available in the Google Play Store.
