Microsoft’s upcoming streaming service, Project xCloud, has officially launched in its public preview program, after having opened up registrations in the UK, US, and Korea last month. Currently, the service allows you to stream games on your Android phones and tablets.

The games currently available as part of the service’s public preview progam are Halo 5: Guardians, Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, and Killer Instinct, which should be more than sufficient as a litmus test for how well the streaming service can run the highest-end Xbox One games on essentially any device. Microsoft has high hopes for xCloud as a service, while many others have also spoken of its potential, so let’s hope to hear some positive impressions in the coming weeks.

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, recently took to Twitter, saying, “We’re excited for all of you to help shape the future of game streaming.”

Meanwhile, this isn’t the only major streaming service launch we’ll be seeing this year. Google’s Stadia launches later this month- it should be interesting to see how they both perform in the coming weeks.
