    Playing on Xbox and through browser using XCloud


    Hi all,

    I would have thought this was possible?

    My son is playing a game on our xbox using his kid account linked to my main xbox account, and then I use my xbox account to log into xbox game pass ultimate and then want to play an xcloud game through Microsoft Edge browser, but every-time my game starts up it displays a message on the xbox saying that my user has started a game somewhere else and my son then has to decide who can play. On the browser it displays this

    You’re playing somewhere else

    You’re allowed to play one game at a time. To play here instead, launch your game again.

    Is this correct or what do I have todo to get this to work? I have made my xbox the home xbox.

    Surely we should be able to play two games, one on xbox and one of xcloud using Xbox Ultimate?

    :)

    Cheers,

    I got it to work by signing myself out of the actual xbox and then using xcloud, so my son is signed into the xbox and playing a seperate game, and it works now! Also assigned my xbox as the home console.

    your account can only be used in one place at a time, cloud gaming cannot be shared with other accounts, that is a perk for the subscriber only.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    No, you will need a Windows PC to run Game Pass games. You can use games that are on xCloud in your browser but you will need the Game Pass Ultimate subscription, it's in a region that xCloud supports and a controller. But unfortunately, so far, Minecraft is not on xCloud but it has great games there that you can enjoy. You can play cloud games in your browser at xbox.com/play.

    Hello, how are you? My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    First, welcome to the Xbox community. Microsoft has the Xcloud service that is included as a benefit for people who subscribe to the ultimate game pass. As a subscriber to the service, you could play Xbox games via streaming, through your PC Xbox app, or browsers.

    Learn more about xcloud through the link below:

    - In order to use xcloud, your country must support the service, check the list of countries at the link below.

    *Thank you in advance for contacting, I hope this can help you.

    Is Microsoft aware that we cannot play xCloud over 5G on iOS due to overheating and device throttling?

    But you don't use any code in your phone to run Xcloud games, it's like streaming a video, as Xcloud runs trough the browser
