Xbox Console Streaming is now available to any region that currently supports the Xbox One, Microsoft has today confirmed.
“Xbox Console Streaming is our new system feature that enables you to play your owned and installed Xbox One games, including Xbox Game Pass titles, on your Android phone or tablet, streamed from your home console,” Microsoft detailed. “We view the public preview as an important step in our journey to deliver game streaming to Xbox players around the world! We are learning from Xbox Insiders like you whenever you participate in these new technologies.”
As we’ve previously detailed, Xbox Console Streaming not only requires a strong 4G/5G/Wifi connection tied to the Android device you’re using, but a heavy upload speed from the home network your Xbox One of choice is located. It’s also different from Project xCloud, which uses a data connection on your phone or tablet alongside Microsoft’s Azure cloud server network.
Microsoft advises your Xbox One’s home network support the following if you’re planning on using Xbox Console Streaming:
- NAT type: Open or Moderate
- Upstream bandwidth: At least 4.75 Mbps required, 9 Mbps preferred
- Network latency: 125 ms or less required, 60 ms or less preferred
- Console settings: Power setting must be Instant-on
Supported regions include the following countries:
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
