Despite Apple dragging its heels on Cloud Gaming.
The Verge reports Microsoft’s updated iOS app will also include remote game streaming to iPhone or iPad – despite Apple continuing to drag its heels over cloud gaming, it permits other Remote Desktop Client apps, such as the similar PlayStation 4 Remote Play – enabling iOS users to stream from their Xbox over Wi-Fi or phone connection.
Both the incoming Xbox app for iOS and the now-available Android version introduce a range of new and updated features, including a fresh look that reflects Microsoft’s recent Xbox UI redesign, a new notification system, the ability to share game clips and screenshots captured on Xbox, and more, as outlined on Xbox Wire.
Although Microsoft says the iOS version of its refreshed Xbox app is available “now”, it doesn’t yet appear to have made its way to the App Store. Hopefully it’ll surface soon.
