Microsoft employees are testing Project xCloud for Windows 10 PCs

By Sean Carey,
Microsoft has begun testing Project xCloud for Windows 10 PCs. The PC preview is currently only available to Microsoft employees and allows you to stream Xbox games to a PC.



Exclusive screenshots of the new Windows 10 Xbox Game Streaming app have been obtained by
The Verge. Microsoft employees have a number of titles to test; however, the app is currently limited to a 720p resolution. The Verge reports that 1080p is coming to the internal preview soon.

The app will be available to download from the Microsoft Store and will require you to use a Bluetooth controller much like the current Android and iOS previews. The Windows 10 app will also support console streaming both locally and remotely.

Judging by the screenshots, it looks similar to how the xCloud preview is set up on Android devices crossed with the Xbox beta app on PC. Hopefully, we won't have to wait too much longer for Windows 10 streaming to be rolled out externally for testing.

In other Project xCloud news, Yakuza 0 was recently added to the service, and the xCloud team revealed that mobile touch controls are in development.
