Yesterday we got the news that Xbox Cloud Gaming will be available on PC and iOS starting today, April 20, in a trial period for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users. A feature that users have been waiting for a long time and which is finally starting to take off. Although, yes, in a different way from Android, as it is not done from an app, if not from a browser.
For this, as we have known today, Microsoft has partnered with Rainway to provide the best service and the best quality of live transmission through browsers.

This post from Kevin LaChapelle, vice president of Xbox Cloud Gaming Platform, makes it clear what the team’s goal is: to achieve the highest quality of service available through the browser. And from this intention is born the union with Rainway, one of the best rated and highest quality companies in the transmission of live content via browsers.
