Microsoft has finally brought Project xCloud into the Game Pass Ultimate, thus making it possible to access many games from the Xbox library even from a wide selection of Android smartphones and tablets.
During the presentation phase, the Redmond company has however reported some exceptions: not all Android devices are the same and not everyone can access xCloud. Among the unavailable terminals we find those based on Chrome OS (not really Android, but able to access Android apps), Fire OS, Android TV, Android Auto (Thank god!) and even OxygenOS, as well as any other form of Android emulated or modified.
Cloud gaming is not currently supported on iOS devices. Also, devices that run modified, alternate, or emulated versions of Android OS (including, but not limited to: Chrome OS, Fire OS, OxygenOS, Android TV, Android Auto, or BlueStacks) will not support cloud gaming.

Nothing strange for most of the exceptions reported, while the inclusion of OxygenOS, the interface used by OnePlus on its smartphones, is particularly out of place. It's unclear why Microsoft put it on the list of unsupported Android versions, however it appears that there is no real limitation.
OnePlus has in fact intervened on the affair and, through a statement released to the colleagues of Android Central, has confirmed that its smartphones are fully compatible with xCloud, so subscribers to the Game Pass do not have to worry: the company's smartphones are ready to immerse them. in the Xbox world.
While waiting to understand if Microsoft's communication is the result of a simple mistake, we remind you that we have analyzed all the main streaming services to help you understand which is the best for you.
