Yes, you heard it correct Xbox Cloud Gaming is now part of the Xbox app on Windows. Today, Microsoft is bringing xCloud to Windows PCs through its Xbox app. Xbox Insiders will be able to approach a new updated Xbox app with Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) built-in. Just like xCloud works with the web, you’ll just require a compatible controller connected with USB or Bluetooth to enjoy Xbox games from a Windows 10 PC.

The updated and latest Xbox app will add a new “cloud games” section, with permission to all the similar games available on xCloud on the web. Jason Beaumont, a partner director of Xbox experiences said that they have also added some new and exciting features that will help users get started. It will also include easily access information on the controller and network status, now those playing on cloud without the game installed can be invited to join the existing player’s game and social features will also be added to stay connected with friends.
