Microsoft will add support for xCloud streaming game service on Smart TV

Adding the xCloud on Smart TV from Microsoft Xbox

Xbox head Phil Spencer said in an interview that xCloud support will be made available on Smart TV next year.

Microsoft (MCRSFT) released a test version of the cloud gaming service xCloud two years ago. xCloud is designed to run Xbox video games on devices running the Android operating system. Computer processes are also processed on Microsoft servers, and the Android device is used only to transfer video game images.

The head executive of Microsoft's Xbox P. Spencer said that the company is currently working on implementing this service on iOS devices. He also added that the next step would be to support the service on Smart TV. Spencer said that Microsoft expects to implement the function with support for the Smart TV service over the next 12 months.

It should be noted that at the beginning of 2020 Microsoft worked with Samsung on xCloud. Microsoft also said that it was going to upgrade its server blades to Xbox Series X.

Phil Spencer said the same thing: "I don't think anybody can stop us from doing what we have in mind. We will definitely be able to do it".

However, as was previously known, those people who were Pass Ultimate subscribers from Xbox had early access to xCloud this summer.
