Ever wanted to play your Xbox games on your Android phone? You can using Microsoft’s Xbox Game Streaming Service! Microsoft is now allowing Xbox One beta testers to stream any games from their console to an Android phone or tablet.

While this might sound like Project xCloud, Microsoft’s preview of cloud-based game streaming, it’s a separate option that’s designed to turn your own Xbox One console into a streaming server.

Much like xCloud, Xbox Game Streaming uses the same Android app to access your Xbox One console. It’s limited to Android, and Microsoft has still not revealed any plans for iOS devices yet. Setup is a breeze for Xbox Game Streaming, and it simply involves enabling a new setting on your Xbox One console and testing your network to ensure it’s ready to stream games. Microsoft recommends the following:

– An open or moderate NAT type
– Upload bandwidth of at least 4.75 Mbps (9 Mbps preferred)
– Network latency of 125 ms or less required (60 ms or less preferred)
– The Xbox One console to be set to instant-on in the power options

Once the Xbox One console is ready, you download the Xbox Game Streaming app on your phone and sign in with your Microsoft Account. You’ll need to pair an Xbox One controller to your Android phone or tablet, and then it’s ready to connect. This Game Streaming feature lets you access your full console and all of its games.

As this takes control of your home Xbox, you can remotely start it away from home. The Xbox will start up without a sound or the Xbox light at the front, and when you disconnect, it goes back into standby after a brief period of inactivity.

You’re not going to want to use the Xbox Game Streaming service for competitive PvP games or fast-paced shooters, but for single-player titles or something a little slower paced, it will work well on the go. One thing you’ll need to consider is bandwidth. The system has been noticed to use around 800MB of data per hour during streaming.
