Xbox Game Pass titles now playable on Android phones globally

It rivals Sony's PS4 Remote Play.

Microsoft’s flagship gaming console, the Xbox One is about to make streaming games possible with the rollout of the Xbox Console Streaming Preview across more countries.

Xbox, in a statement, said gamers in countries including the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and more. The service lets gamers play their Xbox Game Pass games directly on their Android phones and tablets as they stream from their home console.

It follows the release of the trial service in October in the United States.

The Xbox Console Streaming Preview program is still in beta mode to help the developers at Xbox improve the service for players around the world.

To qualify for the beta program, you have to be an Xbox Insider in a supported region and own an Xbox One console enrolled in an Xbox One Update Preview ring. You will also have to have a phone or tablet running Android 6.0 or higher, with Bluetooth 4.0, a Bluetooth-enabled Xbox One Wireless Controller and a Microsoft Account with Xbox profile, and high-speed Internet.

For a better gaming experience, Xbox recommends a controller mount for gamers testing on a phone.

The Xbox Console Streaming is somewhat similar to the offering of Sony’s PlayStation unit, called PS4 Remote Play. It lets PlayStation 4 gamers play from their computers, from iOS devices, or from Android devices.

The PS4 Remote Play on Android devices only became available back in October 2019.
