Microsoft's Xbox chief Phil Spencer is testing Project xCloud for Windows 10

Project xCloud is Microsoft's game streaming service, which has been in testing with Android users since October and with iOS users for the past month. The service lets you play console games on your phone or tablet by pairing a Bluetooth Xbox Wireless Controller and streaming the game.

Project xCloud won't be limited to mobile devices though, and Microsoft announced back in November that it's coming to Windows 10 this year. One savvy Reddit user, called An Xbox Dude, spotted Xbox chief Phil Spencer using an internal version of the PC app.

Of course, it's no surprise that Microsoft is internally testing out the service on Windows 10. It should, after all, be the next platform that the game streaming service launches on. Hopefully, this means that xCloud is coming to Windows 10 sooner rather than later.

After that, the service should still be coming to more platforms. The whole idea behind game streaming is that it can work on whatever device that you're using, no matter the platform or even how powerful the hardware is. All that should matter is that you have fast enough connectivity to stream a game. And with 5G around the corner, this is likely to be a market that's going to grow, a reason that many companies like Google and Nvidia are getting on-board.
