Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available for Quest headsets.
Last year’s Connect conference saw Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella confirm that the Xbox Game Pass library is coming to Quest through Xbox Cloud Gaming. Letting you stream flatscreen games from the cloud, your Quest headset creates a larger screen while playing games through an Xbox controller. At this year’s Meta Connect 2023, the company confirmed that it’s coming to Quest 3 this December.
Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) is now available here, as of December 13, for those with Game Pass Ultimate. Meta says supported controllers include “Xbox controllers, PlayStation 4 controllers, and Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers” while “support for PlayStation 5 controllers” is planned in the future.
Xbox Cloud Gaming is already available on other platforms. Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is the highest tier for Microsoft’s popular subscription service priced at $16.99/month and offering a rotating but wide selection of flatscreen games like Halo Infinite, Starfield, Forza Horizon 5 and more.
