    You can now jump straight into games on Xbox Game Pass from your Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One console. Cloud gaming also lets you play a few next-gen games on Xbox One.

    Game streaming, or cloud gaming, is now supported on Xbox consoles in 25 regions including Australia, Europe, and North America as well as parts of the Middle East and Asia.

    - "Today you can play Game Pass games from the cloud on your Xbox console. We’re excited that Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) is now available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. We are launching in 25 regions with Brazil coming soon. This capability will initially roll out with our November release to a subset of Xbox gamers and scale to all gamers in supported markets over the coming weeks," announced Microsoft.

    The new feature was first revealed in August and is rolling out now with Xbox's November system update. To get started you must subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Then just click 'play' to start the game instantly. More than 100 games support streaming, according to Microsoft.

    Microsoft emphasized that download "is still the flagship experience for Xbox consoles". You must download games to play in up to 4K, HDR, 120fps and Dolby Atmos, and with the lowest level of input lag. Xbox Cloud Gaming is limited to 1080p at 60fps and SDR.
