New game streaming service – Project xCloud

123132-microsoft-project-xcloud

Microsoft introduced Project xCloud, its own streaming service. It will allow you to stream games to any device, regardless of whether you have a powerful console or PC. It promises that the games will be broadcasted to match the level of quality and speed of projects on consoles / PC. Microsoft plans to achieve this with its own equipment hosted on Azure servers around the world. The company is currently testing the service on smartphones and tablets, which can use both touch controls and Bluetooth-enabled Xbox controllers. A public test is scheduled for next year.

However, Microsoft does not say how it will cope with such widespread problems of streaming, such as high latency and inaccurate transmission of input data.
