Ever keen on making new subscription services and future-proofing its engagement strategy, Microsoft's new Project xCloud will essentially let players turn their smartphones into a portable Xbox One for on-the-go gaming. With this upcoming service, you'll be able to stream games that were previously console exclusives to PCs, phones, and tablets.
Microsoft today announced the Project xCloud game-serving service that will give gamers the ability to play console-quality games on their computer device: smartphone, laptop, PC or still on the console.
Microsoft Corp. today previewed Project xCloud, an upcoming service meant to make video games that now require a personal computer or a gaming console playable on mobile devices.
Microsoft already has increased datacenter bandwith and is working on new ways of video coding and decoding for the coming service, officials said.
Whatever the case, we will find out how it all works in 2019, when Microsoft will start public trials of Project xCloud.
It's not yet clear how fast your connection will need to be to enjoy a seamless gaming experience, but Microsoft says 4G and 5G connections will be supported.

However, there are internal tests for Project xCloud going on right now. But even then, data caps present further issues to players using phones and tablets to stream data using broadband cellular network technology.

It brashly boasts its expertise in the area in its blog post announcing xCloud, and has created a customizable blade tailored to hosting the component parts of multiple Xbox One consoles.
