    Can you play fortnite on cloud ? I’m looking to buy the newest Samsung 📲 but, fortnite is the only game I’m interested in playing via mobile.

  2. GR.Motorsports016 on April 3, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I own and I love my PS Vita. So itd be cool that Xbox does something similar. Im curious though as Im military so deployments and such would be perfect with these things if they can stand alone. PS Vita I have the games on a disk. This sounds like I require streaming abilities and Im not able to download and keep the games? So… not much of a win there if Im in BFE no signal and down time.

    Do you just need game pass or ultimate if you need one or the other its okay

  4. AZ ZA on April 3, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    I travel alot internationally and I think along with better internet this is way more affordable than buying a gaming pc/console overseas for most non-westerners. It’s pretty exciting!

  5. Mark Tomeh on April 3, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Stadia latency is better. I’ve tested both recently.

    Did he say Verizon suckz!🤔 Verizon has the best mobile data an Hotspot there is, but they do suck with their high prices tho.🤣

  7. Noble 007 on April 3, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    It should be like GeForce now

  8. Richard Sousa on April 3, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Question: Will this sync with my save files from my console? Will my skyrim SE mods carry over?

  9. memebee on April 3, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Pov you don’t have a controller……

  10. Candy’s Channel on April 3, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    You didn’t even touch upon those of us in the pandemic situation, can NOT afford a new console or simply don’t want to buy a console and want to enjoy gaming without worrying about storage space or play it on mobile. I’m an older gamer and have not one single ounce of interest in buying another console, so cloud gaming is what I’m interested in besides mobile gaming.

    I have a 100mbps free internet night time so goodbye sleeping

  12. /Lucas —H— Rowett on April 3, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Its good if you want to go your grandmas

    Corona: well lets see about that

  13. Yaron Charles on April 3, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    "When stadia works" sent me rolling 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  14. sonny on April 3, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    I’m on mint mobile with truly unlimited. I got a moga for free with Samsung s20 fe. I will say I agree, its a good side console, I was playing monster sanctuary on it and its great! But the screens on phone are too small for bigger games with small text like black desert. I dont see this as a replacement for traditional games, ever. Period. Some games will require more testing. And I wish I could stream it from my laptop without hassle as I dont think it plays very well with every controller… also while it is responsive it hiccups randomly in. Sometimes A huge way. Like to the point were its unplayable, my biggest concern is battery drain. I use my phone for work and texting people, kind of a waste to have your main device occupied by video games…

  15. Wayne Payne98 on April 3, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Its coming to Australia in a week I’m so happy. I get 80mbps down on cellular data so hopefully itll work, I will definitely be playing xbox on my break at work.

  16. Ydal Eeks on April 3, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    If I dont have XBox I can use this app to play xbox games?

  17. Zoltán Kovács on April 3, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    can i use a ps5 controller for it?

  18. Alan Hewlett on April 3, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Due to financial situation, cannot afford a xbox one or ps4 let alone a gaming pc, so xcloud gaming is the only way have been able to play eso, nms, halo 5 etc….

  19. monir hoque on April 3, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    can i use with hands? because i dont know to use controller

  20. Michael Suezo on April 3, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Thanks for this. Heads up the ultimate game pass is 1$ for 3 months right now

  21. Edg3crusher41 on April 3, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    A little choppy main complaint is it feels like Input lag constantly on the brand new revvl 5g maybe it’s my phone.. unplayable but no complaints it’s free

  22. Emmanuel De Arcos on April 3, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    A very bad option if you only play a couple of games. Since it’s streaming, games will be only available time until the library refreshes. Where are you going to install the games? How much will you pay for them?

  23. TheMuffinMan on April 3, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I just bought game pass 100% worth it

  24. Sajal Shrestha on April 3, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    I subscribed but can’t play a single thing in Australia. Wth???

  25. Spaceinvader2.0 on April 3, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    And I thought PlayStation was going to succeed in this since the psp days they’ve been talking about it.

  26. FoundGamer on April 3, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Xcloud coming to iOS and pc confirmed

  27. Peely #1 on April 4, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Just buy ps5 or Nintendo switch they got more exclusives

  28. Leon M. on April 4, 2021 at 12:02 am

    I only own a switch and don’t really want to buy another console, though want to play some of the other „non switch“ games. I don’t own a PC but a Macbook and an IPad so I’m technically looking forward to xCloud on IOS. But you said that you wouldn’t recommend it for it alone. In my case that would be the case though. Do you think it’s worth it for me to play some games I wouldn’t have access to otherwise?

  29. Pete Orzech on April 4, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I’m currently playing Cyberpunk on Stadia and love both the game and Stadia, streams directly to my big screen tv and I love it. Long term problem is content, as they say, content is King.
    XCloud does not sound like something I can play on my big screen unless I have the console.

  30. Matt Betta on April 4, 2021 at 12:05 am

    PlayStation needs to keep up

  31. aarvee on April 4, 2021 at 12:05 am

    That dude at 0:24 spooked me out

  32. Mitchell Lee on April 4, 2021 at 12:07 am

    I love it when I’m at work and it’s slow 💪

  33. Alan Hazard on April 4, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Does your home Xbox need to be on to play ?

  34. Ibrahim Akinola on April 4, 2021 at 12:09 am

    You need the xbox game pass for xcloud?

  35. Fnord on April 4, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Love to hear more about your zfold regret!

  36. 1 Video Game Dude on April 4, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Almost unplayable for me. My internet is 5G, playing a note 20 ultra but At&t is terrible in my area. Not sure how well it works for other providers

  37. Vergil mp4 on April 4, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Who need xbox series X if we have Xcloud

  38. Rotty T on April 4, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Do I have to have an Xbox or PC or can I just be mobile?

  39. Soroush Heidary on April 4, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I hope they implement much higher graphical fidelity in xcloud games because you can’t play the games with 4k displays around I think it actually supports 720p or 1080p right now so it’s a good move to use pc ultra quality assets instead of console version also there’s no need for 60fps on phones for single player games and so much data can be saved with these optimizations instead of making games run on higher resolution on cloud

  40. Brakamar, or else! on April 4, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I have to say this service is dangerous!

    As they keep adding touch controls to games iv found my toilet sessions have grown rapidly outof control!

    Like the other day wheb siting on my throne a business that would usually take 5-10 minutes took 2h 5m

    Touch controls, game straming and jrpg is a deadly combination i now have to leave my phone to other room so i dont waste hours at the toilet playing dragon quest!

    And read *gasps in horror* the text in shampoo botles…

  41. Luke Lee on April 4, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Maybe in 5 years when 5g is 5 bars in the middle of nowhere.

  42. Ovan TriEdge on April 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I love Black Desert Online

  43. AmriSleepy on April 4, 2021 at 12:15 am

    im curious on something, if i get it, im able to play every game thats included from pc game to xbox games on pc itself right? like i dont need to get an xbox at all? help.

  44. Sam Sung on April 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    it isnt on ios because apple wants a huge cut

  45. Muscle Gaining on April 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Hella people gon do this in school

  46. thelast gambler on April 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    I have a Sx and I still use this service at work daily

  47. Naudia Kitty Dragon on April 4, 2021 at 12:17 am

    No matter what happens this is still better then Stadia cuz if its servers shut down for good you still have your games because they are through Microsoft store and you still have a Xbox.

  48. Creeper Freak on April 4, 2021 at 12:17 am

    You don’t need game pass

  49. Mardge Sampson on April 4, 2021 at 12:22 am

    i’d much rather xbox made a 1080P handheld with ssd storage for buying 360 games. two joysticks, amoled.

  50. jive turkey on April 4, 2021 at 12:23 am

    As of December, this is running pretty well. There’s a little bit of input lag and small graphical issues, but still a great performance and 100% playable
