Microsoft’s Phil Spencer is working on an alternative that would allow gamers to access their Xbox Game Pass streaming games from Apple devices, according to business Insider. At Wednesday’s plenary meeting, Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s executive vice president of gaming, discussed potential plans and solutions for bringing its cloud gaming services to iPads and iPhones.
As reported, Microsoft plans to potentially release a “browser-based direct solution” in 2021.
This isn’t the first time Phil Spencer has expressed plans for Microsoft’s game streaming service to enter Apple devices. In a September 22 interview, he continued to shift the focus to Microsoft’s desire to use Xbox Game Pass on as many devices as possible.
Apple recently announced that cloud gaming services such as Google Stadia and Xbox Game Pass are not available in its device ecosystem because developers need to submit each game on the service separately for review.
Sony can circumvent this limitation with the PS4 Remote Play because the app only provides input and video display for games that are already running on its console, rather than streaming through a separate server.
Similarly, Amazon’s upcoming Luna gaming service will allow gamers to access Luna from their iOS web browser (and leave bookmarks as app icons on their home screen), bypassing Apple’s restrictions.
