Microsoft's Project xCloud will now show you trailers for games to play

Microsoft's Project xCloud game streaming service has been in public testing since October, and it's already come a long way. The preview has expanded significantly as far as the amount of users that can play, and the number of games offered. In fact, there are now more than 50 games on the xCloud preview.

Today, the company announced that it's adding trailers to the app. Upon launching the service, you'll get trailers for five games that you can swipe through. While it's playing, the game will start to load in the background, so you can easily jump in and start playing if you want to. Microsoft says that it's going to continue to swap out this area with new trailers.

Naturally, this feature is only available on Android. The reason for this is because Project xCloud on iOS still only has one game: Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The Redmond firm blamed Apple's App Store policies for this limitation, and it's unclear how it's going to get around them. But for now, it surely wouldn't make sense to include trailers for five games in an app where only one game is available.

The feature is rolling out today to the app on Android, and of course, Microsoft hopes that you'll provide feedback on it.
