Game Pass has been available in those countries, but in beta. This is the official launch

Also, it may have been accidentally revealed that Game Pass has reached 30 million active subscribers

Since they're now in Game Pass, these games can be played on your mobile - that's why it's announced in Tokyo

the official list of support countries supposedly includes Canada. Can confirm that as of September 2021, Xbox Cloud Gaming for PC is NOT AVAILABLE. SIgned up for game pass ultimate,

the literaly instructions are to navigate to the cloud gaming tab in the xbox app on pc.

NO TAB EXISTS.

PSNow has been allowing you to stream ps1, ps2 , ps3 and ps4 games on pc for almost 8 years..

What the heck is taking microsoft so long is beyond me.

Well for starters psnows game streaming has been considered pretty bad to mediocre so there's that. Microsoft is building up their server infrastructure to make sure its being done the right way.

i doubt your comment is factual considering I have the worst internet in the world and yet can play psnow with literally 0 issues. On top of that..PSNOW streaming exists on pc.. xbox console streaming does not despite claims to the contrary.

According to the instructions, it's the "Game Pass" tab, and then "Cloud Gaming"





(Make sure it's the latest Xbox App, and not the Xbox Console Companion App)

Hope that helps
