Project xCloud is the new game streaming service from Microsoft that will launch sometime in October 2019. However, before the service is officially available, the company is doing a preview of the service in the United States, United Kingdom, and South Korea.
If you want to participate, you’ll first need to meet the eligibility requirements, which include the need of a 5GHz Wi-Fi connection (or mobile connection of at least 10Mbps), Xbox controller with Bluetooth, Android phone running version 6.0 or higher of the mobile OS, . Also, you’ll need to install and set up the Xbox Game Streaming app, which will be available for download when Project xCloud preview starts.
The Project xCloud preview is invitation-only, as such, once you know that you’re eligible, you have to sign-up for a chance to receive an invitation of the gaming service.
