Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud have been actively attracting players’ attention in recent times. To clear the way for the launch, Microsoft wants to do more preview testing of xCloud. By methodically advancing Alpha Preview, Microsoft also hopes that xCloud will complement anti-cheat, low server latency, and creative collaborative solutions.

In a recent update, Catherine Gluckstein, project director at xCloud, said, “For very special reasons, we’re going to open xCloud previews in three markets and a dedicated community section on Reddit.”
The most important thing for them is that they are open to every step of the way. The Xbox market in the U.S. and the U.S. is more mature, and that’s what it wants to see changes in extended play.
In addition, they are working with SK Telecom in Korea to explore the possibilities and unlimited potential of 5G. There are also markets in Canada, Western Europe, Japan and India , the latter being largely large enough.
It is reported that the number of games in India has exceeded the population of the United States (about 300 million), Microsoft obviously does not want to let go of this huge market.
Through early testing, the xCloud team was able to learn a lot about things, including how to improve anti-cheat technology to accommodate ultra-low response latency data streams. In fact, the ping time between xCloud and the server is already quite close to 0 ms.
Microsoft, meanwhile, hopes the platform will bring the “couch co-op” cooperation option that was originally overlooked by game developers. Parents can also be online on Surface Book 2 when your child is playing on Xbox One X.
