Microsoft had initially planned to bring its Project xCloud streaming technology to both iOS and Android, but Apple refused to allow game streaming apps on its App Store. The service did launch on Android in September.

Microsoft announced that streaming Xbox Game Pass Ultimate games will also be available through the Xbox app and web browser on PC, and will be bringing the service to new countries such as Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers a huge library of games between Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Android for $14.99 per month, though is currently on sale at three months for $1 for new subscribers.
