- xCloud is available to users who have signed up for the service in the US, UK, and Korea

- Microsoft says the demand will exceed the capacity for the test program
- To use the service you need an Android phone or tablet and an Xbox controller
Microsoft is now giving some people the chance to test its budding game streaming service xCloud.
Gamers in the US, UK, and Korea have all been invited by Microsoft to participate in a beta for xCloud, the company's upcoming streaming platform that allows users to stream console games anywhere.
Those who opted for xCloud & # 39; s preview last month can now stream a select number of Xbox titles, including Gears 5, Halo 5: Guardians, Killer Instinct and Sea of Thieves.
Microsoft & # 39; s xCloud is the company's first ever game streaming service and has begun a test phase in the US, UK and Korea
& # 39; Public preview is a critical phase in our multi-year ambition to deliver gaming streaming globally on the scale and quality of the gaming community's deserved and expected experience, "said Microsoft & # 39; s chief gaming gaming Kareem Choudhry in a statement.
& # 39; It's time to test Project xCloud in a wider capacity, with a range of gamers, devices, network environments, and real-world use-case scenarios & # 39; s. & # 39;
While Microsoft started registering users for the service last month, those who missed the login can still register here.
The company said the demand is likely to exceed capacity for the first test phase, so those who are interested and have not yet signed up are advised to jump on ASAP registration.
To test the service, however, you must already have an Android phone or tablet, a Microsoft login, and a Bluetooth compatible phone and Xbox controller.
As for any data-intensive task on the tablet or phone, users must also have access to a relatively fast internet connection.
The Verge reports that Microsoft has already entered into partnerships with 5G telecom companies in South Korea and technical partnerships with T-Mobile in the US and Vodafone in the UK to help deliver the service.
During a major event in November, Microsoft probably has more news on its burgeoning streaming platform
Microsoft says it plans to expand the number of games as the service grows and will offer more details at the Marquis, even in London in November.
& # 39; This is just the beginning. We will continue to improve, innovate, invite more of you, add more content and do this with the community in an open and transparent way & # 39 ;, wrote Choudhry.
