Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now use the Xbox app on Windows 10 to access xCloud. Additionally, the latest update to this popular gaming platform added a remote play feature previously seen with Xbox One consoles.
The new app is an evolution of its predecessor, allowing more advanced games. Remote play capabilities mean you can stream games from the PC in 1080p at 60 fps and also access your classic Xbox 360 collection, with backward compatibility through the X | S series.

You play cloud games by connecting a compatible PC controller via USB or Bluetooth. You will also need an internet connection to take full advantage of your service, so make sure both of these qualities are available when using this feature for maximum enjoyment.
