Microsoft has announced that Alpha Skip-Ahead Insiders can now play Xbox Series X|S games on their Xbox One consoles via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

It’s the news that many of us have been waiting to hear, and it comes alongside the news that Twitch streaming has been built into the Xbox Guide. Members of the Xbox Insiders Alpha Skip-Ahead preview ring can now stream Xbox Series X|S titles to their Xbox Ones, thanks to the recent update that implements Xbox Cloud Gaming.

This update is certainly a much-needed feature after so many games are now being announced as “next-gen” only, although, you’ll still need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription to take advantage of it. The game itself will also need to be part of the Xbox Game Pass library as a Cloud Gaming enabled title, so this isn’t a blanket feature to cover every title coming to the Xbox Series X|S consoles, and you still won’t be able to play Microsoft Flight Simulator. It is a promising step in the right direction, however.

As with any new advancements for Xbox Insiders, the feature should make its way to everyone sometime in the future, and you can be sure that we’ll let you know when it does.
