The latest version of the Xbox Beta app on iOS is here and includes one thing that xCloud can’t do – stream Xbox games to your iPhone. There is one catch though, you actually need to own an Xbox.
It's called Remote Play. Something Sony already did to allow games to be streamed to your phone. If Microsoft would have started here first with RP, would have been less problems for them than trying to go around another company's policies and cutting Apple out of their cut of the money on the platform they own. Still no Xcloud.
So has Xbox....just on Android. This is now on iDevices...That's the point here sir.
Microsoft has had remote play for years.
No, Xbox Remote Play only started on Android during the Game Streaming beta earlier in the year. But OP is still jaded - this has nothing to do with Apple's policies or Sony or even xCloud. Though he seems to fully endorse Apple's discrimination of gaming services when they don't apply those same restrictive policies onto other streaming platforms (Netflix, Hulu, etc)
@tacoboto Remote Play has existed about year and a half... Maybe more
@Tacoboto I have streamed from my XB since late 2014 to my PC.
https://www.engadget.com/xb... It only started on Android out of beta last week. The best I can find for PC is that it's officially in-home network only but there are ways to make it accessible over the internet through router changes, through the Xbox Companion App (never knew about this feature)
No thanks . Phone is too smalls and I use it for talking .

I’ve been looking for this for ages as the wife likes watching crap on the tv my Xbox is on. Wish I could get into the beta but it’s full. Hopefully full version soon
