Just the other day, a new 4K dashboard for the Xbox was being tested to improve user experience.

New Features

Users should expect to stream games from the Xbox Series X/S and any other console titles in the cloud. This is the first time Microsoft has done such a thing for its users.

According to the company, users can now stream games at a better quality of 1080p for 60 frames per second. If you are a game fanatic, then you know how important game stability is.

A Twitter user seemed to have rushed their heels to try out the feature, and from the look of things, he was thoroughly impressed!

Provided you have a membership, stable internet connection, and a compatible controller, you are good to go. You can easily stream from your Cloud Gaming in the Xbox application.

More compatible devices

The new feature brings Microsoft a step closer to its goal of making as many devices as possible for cloud gaming. At present, there are 294 console games on the cloud. Android and iOs users have not been left behind as they too can take advantage of the feature.
