With Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming available on Android devices and tablets, and testing happening on web browsers and iOS, we now have confirmation that a couple of the next big logical steps for the service are happening. And that is bringing Xbox Game Pass to Smart TVs everywhere, where all you’ll need is a controller. And bringing streaming to the Windows 10 Xbox App -- and even Xbox consoles too.

A console streaming a game over the cloud played on another console? Yeah, that’s some Xbox Inception stuff right there. Though it does bring up the very cool option of being able to try before you buy download for titles on Game Pass. And for those with a Smart TV there’s a ChromeCast-like streaming device also coming.

With most TVs running some version of Android, no doubt Microsoft has been testing this for quite some time. And with Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming heading to Australia later this year (which is now official), it’s great that Aussies will be getting the best version of the service to date. With the combination of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Cloud Gaming, it’s all about bringing Xbox games to a wide audience.

Smart TV and native PC support for Cloud Gaming and Xbox Game Pass is, again, a logical step to take.

“We believe that games, that interactive entertainment, aren’t really about hardware and software,” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox. “It’s not about pixels. It’s about people. Games bring people together. Games build bridges and forge bonds, generating mutual empathy among people all over the world. Joy and community - that’s why we’re here.”

“As a company, Microsoft is all-in on gaming,” added Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. “Gaming is the most dynamic category in the entertainment industry. Three billion consumers look to gaming for entertainment, community, creation, as well as a real sense of achievement, and our ambition is to empower each of them, wherever they play.”

Although we don’t know what TV models or brands will be adding Xbox Game Pass apps, Microsoft is currently working with TV manufacturers to make it happen. That integration and the PC stuff is expected later this year. When it comes to the Chrome, Edge, and Safari browser side -- Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming access is expected to open up to all Ultimate subscribers in the coming weeks. Very cool news for Apple fans.
