xCloud already runs in browsers
Microsoft has officially launched its xCloud service in many countries, and in the coming months it plans to expand the list with many more. But at the moment the service is only available on Android, so the next task was to cover more platforms with which to attract more users.
And the first step was obviously the browsers. With xCloud running in any C browser, there would be many more users interested in the service, especially those who do not have Xbox and are interested in trying games on the system.
Well then, The Verge has had access to a series of captures in which the interface of the service is shown running in an Edge browser. Apparently it is a preliminary version of a new update that should not take long to appear, so we would be talking about that xCloud will be able to be played from browsers very soon.
xCloud for iOS
One of the reasons for launching xCloud in a hurry in browsers is to be able to offer a solution for iOS users. With Apple's ban on taking the xCloud application to the App Store (for legal reasons set out in the terms of service), Microsoft had no choice but to reinvent itself, running from the browser sounded like the simplest and most feasible solution to to get it.

In this way, players who want to access the service from iOS will be able to do so from their device's browser without problems, thus achieving a possible new source of users.
An imminent launch
The images allow us to see an interface identical to the one we can see in the Android application, being able to launch the games in full screen with total ease. At the moment it is unknown what resolution the interface will handle, so the performance that the service will offer at full capacity remains to be known.
It is important to remember that current servers offer a performance equivalent to that of an Xbox One S, and although Microsoft plans to update the components this year, at the moment it is unknown when the migration to the platform based on Xbox Series X will occur. now everything runs on Xbox One S, for the moment we will have to forget to play in 4K, so until Microsoft changes its servers we will not be able to enjoy the maximum resolution from the browser.
This change of servers will also serve to take the next step, which is none other than reaching Smart TVs. Given the well-known relationship between Microsoft and Samsung, it would be pretty obvious to see an app for Samsung's Smart TVs, but with the absence of 4K resolution, this would be somewhat unworkable for now. For now, we will have to wait for the arrival of the function for the browsers, and we will see what happens next.
