The Project xCloud public preview is currently available in the US, the UK, Canada, and South Korea, and the cloud gaming service works over Wi-Fi or a cellular connection. You’ll need a device running Android 6.0 or newer, and Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, as well ad the Xbox Game Streaming Android. The public preview is currently invite-only, and you can register this page.
Microsoft recently expanded the Project xCloud public preview to iOS devices, but Halo: The Master Chief Collection is currently the only playable game on iPhones and iPads. The Xbox team announced last year that Project xCloud would soon be available on Windows 10 PCs as well, but Microsoft didn’t gave an ETA. It’s worth noting that Stadia, Google’s competing cloud gaming service is currently available on PCs, phones, TVs, and select Android phones, but not iPhones and iPads.
