The launch of Xbox Project xCloud on Android devices is almost here. It releases on September 15, 2020 and all details will be noted here within the news piece. This has a special promotional inclusion on the Samsung Galaxy Store.

It’s a partnership that will grow over time, and the Note 20 has a special extra bonus too with a bundled package offering as well. It is also available on the Google Play Store. It has a base requirement to run of Android 6.0 for phone or tablet options.

It will require a 5Ghz Wifi signal, or a mobile data connection of 10mbs down. There are also extra peripheral options that will expand the input capabilities. You can use a Xbox Wireless Controller that has Bluetooth support as the best case option aside from those extra peripherals.
