Project xCloud preview is expanding into 11 countries across Western Europe

By Sean Carey,
The Project xCloud preview for Android is expanding into eleven different countries across Western Europe. The preview is coming to Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden.


Registrations for the Android preview are open now. All you have to do is head over to the Project xCloud website to sign up for a chance to get into the preview. The rollout is happening just yet, however. According to the GM of xCloud, Catherine Gluckstein, the team has recognised the strain placed on internet bandwidth due to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19. Gluckstein said via Xbox Wire, "We continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation and will begin rolling out the Project xCloud preview across 11 Western European countries when we are confident it is sensible to do so.

"We will take a measured approach to help conserve internet access, beginning the preview in each market with a limited number of people and adding more participants over time."

If you're in one of the above countries, you can register your interest now. Once the xCloud team are ready with the rollout in your country, they will email select participants with further instructions.

In other xCloud news, Ninja Theory's Bleeding Edge has been added to the preview, and Microsoft employees have begun testing the cloud streaming service on Windows 10 PCs.
