What is Xbox Game Pass for Android?

Now that it's leaving beta soon, cloud streaming is another feature within Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the company's game subscription service that also bundles Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, EA Play. Cloud streaming within Xbox Game Pass for Android supports a couple of hundred games at the moment, including popular EA titles and some of Bethesda's greatest hits like Fallout 4, Skyrim, and more.

Xbox Game Pass itself is a bit similar to Netflix. For one low monthly cost, members are treated to a rotating catalog of hundreds of games, including Xbox Game Studios exclusives that launch into the service the day they release for everyone else.

Every first-party Xbox title from across Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks is made available in Xbox Game Pass day one of launch, so you can start streaming it as soon as it's available. This including upcoming games like Arkane Austin's vampire-hunting immersive shooter Redfall and Bethesda Game Studios' role-playing game Starfield, both games that are set to launch in 2022.
