Many tech giants are pitching against each other in the battle of game streaming.

Google has Stadia, Sony has Remote Play and PlayStation Now and Microsoft has been quietly working on its Xbox Console Streaming. It allows Xbox owners to play any owned and installed Xbox One game, or Game Pass title on their Android phones or tablet easily.

Although the feature has been available for program testers for a while now, Microsoft has finally decided to reveal more about it.

Currently, if you are living in any of these countries, you will be able to take advantage of Xbox Console Streaming. All you need to do is sign up for the Xbox insider program and join the Xbox One Update Preview ring.

Once you are done with enrolling, open up the Google Play Store on your Android device, and download the Xbox Game Streaming app(Preview). You will keep receiving more instructions through the app.

Additionally, you will need a Bluetooth 4.0 supported Xbox controller, a Microsoft Account, an Android device running version 6.0 or higher of the OS, and a high-speed internet connection. A controller mount would help as well but that’s not strictly necessary.
