Epay to manage transactions between Microsoft and retailers for Xbox-related subscriptions

Microsoft's Microsoft xCloud game streaming service goes live with 150 games

Microsoft announced that it will eventually be adding EA Play to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, though that won't be happening till later this year.

Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) game streaming feature, formerly known as xCode, launches today for Android devices. Apple cracked open the door last week for game streaming services to run on its phones and tablets, but with some major caveats.

The list of titles includes Gears 5, Destiny 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Grounded, Sea of Thieves, Darksiders III, Ark: Survival Evolved, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. And players don't have to worry about leaving left behind when cross-play is finally added to the game; since Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox Cloud Gaming is just the Xbox version of the game, cross-play will work perfectly even with touch controls enabled. That means, if you want to stream games on your smartphone, you will have to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Because members have access to a common library, members immediately have dozens of multiplayer games at their disposal that they can play together.

With the arrival of the second half of this month of September, Microsoft takes the opportunity to announce the next titles that will join Xbox Game Pass, its on-demand video game service for PC Windows 10 and Xbox One and that with the arrival of xCloud service, some of them also land on Android devices.

You'll need to download the Xbox Game Pass (Beta) app in order to play, we've included a link to the Google Play Store page, here. From tomorrow, you'll be able to play a huge selection of titles through the Xbox Game Pass app on any Android phone or tablet, using the same save files across console and cloud.

Game Pass Ultimate also includes your Xbox Live Gold subscription, access to hundreds of games on your Xbox consoles and your PC.
