Xbox Console Streaming Preview for Android Goes Global

Xbox Games and Apps

Xbox One owners can now stream games from their consoles to their Android smartphones and tablets. Now, the company has announced that all Xbox One supported countries have access to the trial. The feature first launched back in October of past year as a preview, though it was only limited to Xbox Insiders in the United States and the United Kingdom. Therefore, you can stream your own games to a mobile device and play them in another room or even when out and about. PC and PlayStation players have had similar streaming options available for a while now but, until today, Microsoft limited Xbox One streaming to Windows PCs.

Download the Xbox Game Streaming app from the Google Play Store.

However, Xbox Console Streaming only requires participation, not any specific rank.

Following a pretty successful trial run in the U.S. and U.K., Microsoft is now opening up its Xbox One Console Streaming Preview to the world, or at the very least, every country where Microsoft supports Xbox Live.

Be an Xbox Insider in the U.S. or United Kingdom with a console enrolled in the Alpha or Alpha-Skip-Ahead rings.


You will also need an Xbox One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, and a Microsoft Account with an Xbox Profile.

You will need a modernish Android device (sorry iPhone and iPad people) with support for Bluetooth 4, running at least Android 6.0 or higher.

You can then enrol from within that app. Network latency must be below 125ms, but lower than 60ms ensures a great experience.

"The Xbox Elite Series 2 improves the expanded feature-set of the Elite in many ways, giving you more ways to remake your controller to run in a way that feels natural to you and you alone".

The Xbox Console Streaming is an answer to the PS4 Remote Play, which is Sony's implementation for streaming PS4 games to an Android device.
