Australian xCloud game streaming should be coming to Australia within the next year or so, with Xbox head Phil Spencer saying Aussies can expect the service in 2021.

“Yes you can,” Spencer tweeted to Aussie YouTuber Skill Up when asked about availability. “Should be in early 2021, we are doing internal testing with our local Australia teams now. Those upgraded intertubes help a ton….”

xCloud is now live in a number of regions as part of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming initiative. More than 170 Xbox games can now be streamed from the cloud to an Android device in countries including the USA, Canada, a number of European countries, South Korea and more.
