    Microsoft has started testing Xbox Cloud Gaming on consoles

    The functionality, which will allow Xbox One users to play "several" Xbox Series X/S exclusive titles like Microsoft Flight Simulator, is presently being tested by "a random fraction of Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha [Xbox] Insiders."

    It enables gamers to access Xbox Game Pass titles without having to download them and to participate in multiplayer sessions with friends for games that are not installed on the hardware console.

    To get a comprehensive list of supported titles, go to My Games & Apps > Full Library > Xbox Game Pass and set the filter to ‘Cloud Games.’

    Titles that support the feature are shown by a cloud symbol when browsing the Xbox Game Pass on the console (pictured, top).

    Microsoft has identified a number of current issues affecting cloud gaming on the platform.

    Among them, users may be unable to release basic included games (such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection), and in-game transactions are not supported, requiring purchases through the Store from the console or the Xbox online.
