Microsoft has enjoyed considerable success with its Game Pass service, and it also offers a cloud gaming service so you can play Xbox titles through your PC, smartphone, or tablet.
Now, the Redmond Company has announced That it’s making its own streaming devices for Xbox cloud gaming. Microsoft says it will let you stream Xbox games to your TV or monitor.
There’s no word on what to expect in terms of form factor and price, but we’re guessing it could take the form of a streaming stick like the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

This wouldn’t be the first time Microsoft has dabbled with this form factor, as the firm apparently canceled a so-called Project Hobart Streaming stick back in 2016. It was set to be available for $99 as per the reports at the time. Presumably the new streaming devices will also offer support for other apps like Netflix.
Microsoft also announced that it is working with TV makers to “embed the Xbox experience” in smart TVs. That way, you’ll only need one controller to play Xbox titles (possibly even via streaming).
The company also said that it is in the “final stages” of updating its data centers with Xbox Series X consoles. This should result in faster loading times, better visuals, and more.
