Review: Xbox Game Pass cloud streaming works wonders on Android

Xbox Game Pass is hands down the best game streaming service you can get on your Android phone. Microsoft made waves across the industry with Xbox Game Pass, creating an affordable subscription service that sees new select AAA titles and exclusives launch into it the day they release at retail. The value is immense, and it only got better when Xbox Game Pass Ultimate added cloud streaming for its members. Though still in beta, Xbox Game Pass cloud streaming works fantastic on Android, allowing you to play your favorite console games on the go wherever you are. I've spent some time testing it out in a variety of games that support either touch controls or dedicated controllers, and it works like a charm, even in first-person shooters. Though there are times where you'll encounter some input lag or latency as the connection buffers, these tend to be few and far between. As far as game streaming services go, this is the best you can get on Android. Xbox Game Pass for Android

Thanks to Xbox Game Pass for Android, I've ditched my consoles completely

There's a lot to be said about the current state of gaming. Whether it's the explosion of mobile gaming to go along with the best gaming phones , or if you're still trying to get your hands on the PS5 or one of those fancy, new graphics card s for your PC build. However, there's another aspect entirely that has also exploded in recent months, and that's cloud gaming. While Google seems to just be waiting around for something to happen with Stadia , others are taking advantage without really pushing the mobile platform too hard. Last year saw the exit of Project xCloud from its "project" status and its entrance into the Google Play Store in an official capacity with Xbox Game Pass . Earlier this year, Microsoft even brought a similar experience to iOS and iPadOS devices, although you'll have to use it as a web app just like Stadia. As someone who currently has more phones on his desk than he can count, along with a custom-built gaming PC, a Rasp
