This is Microsoft’s latest attempt to win over more gamers with the promise of cutting ties to the living room and as competition with Sony heats up.
Subscribers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, priced at $14.99 monthly, will be able to play more than 150 games via the cloud on Xbox consoles, Android devices and PCs.
Microsoft has made it even easier by removing the need for a console to play the games. An Android device and a supporter controller will suffice.
The launch in 22 countries, including the United States and 19 European countries, marks a shift for Microsoft into cloud gaming, which removes the need for bulky hardware but requires a fast internet connection.
New entrants include Google, which has struggled to build a fanbase for its Stadia service.
"We built this experience so that it requires as little bandwidth as possible," said Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft's Head of Cloud Gaming.
"We're also working with ISPs (internet service providers) around the world to ensure a strong connection between gamers and our Azure datacenters."
