Microsoft Xbox has a new update for iOS and iPadOS app and it will allow Xbox One owners to stream games to their devices. The app is available on App Store and it has a remote play feature, which will allow Xbox One console owners stream directly to an iPhone or iPad.
The remote play feature is quite different from Microsoft’s xCloud service. The difference being xCloud allows you to stream games directly from servers as opposed to your own Xbox One console. However, the Xbox remote play feature will connect to your Xbox console, and not to xCloud.
The feature is very similar to Sony’s PS4 Remote Play feature that is also available on Android and iOS. Only Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S games can support the feature. The older Xbox 360 and original Xbox games will not support it and cannot be streamed remotely to Android or iOS/iPadOS devices.

The Xbox app can also give access to the Xbox console over Wi-Fi, LTE, and 5G connection. It will let you control your home Xbox and also allow you remotely start your console outside of your home.
Remotely starting your Xbox will make it come on without a sound or the Xbox light in the front. Then, once disconnected, the console goes back into standby after a brief period of inactivity.
The Xbox app update also came with some improvements. It is a lot faster than its previous versions and it gives the user more control over its storage, meaning they manage console space and delete games from the app.
