Microsoft’s Project xCloud Preview comes to Canada on January 29th [Update: Now available]

After launching in public preview in October 2019, Microsoft has announced that Project xCloud will be expanding to Canada starting January 29th.

Project xCloud was first announced back in October 2018 as its take on game streaming. The service allows players to play console-quality games from their Android phone or tablet.

The company says there are more than 50 titles available to try on Project xCloud including Destiny 2, Devil May Cry 5, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4 and more. A complete list of all the games on xCloud is available here.

This news just comes a week after Microsoft expanded support for more countries (including Canada) to the Xbox Console Streaming feature currently in preview. The feature basically allows you to stream games installed on your console to your phone as your own mini xCloud server.

For those wanting to sign-up to get an invite to Project xCloud, register here.

To use xCloud, you’ll need an Android phone or tablet with Android 6.0 or higher, Bluetooth-enabled Xbox One controller, a Microsoft account and the Xbox Game Streaming (Preview) app from the Google Play Store.

Project xCloud is currently available in the US, UK and Korea and then Canadian support launches on January 29th.

Update – January 29th, 2020: The Project xCloud Preview is now available in Canada. You can sign up for an invite here.
