Microsoft’s beta app works on Quest 2, 3, or Pro headsets to stream Xbox cloud games.
Xbox Cloud Gaming is arriving on Meta’s range of VR headsets today. A beta version of the cloud gaming app is now available for the Meta Quest 2, 3, or Pro headsets, allowing you to stream hundreds of Xbox games with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, a controller, and a Quest headset.
The beta app is available from the Meta Quest Store, and you’ll simply need to pair a supported Bluetooth controller to start playing. You can use an Xbox controller (that supports Bluetooth), a PS4 one, or even Nintendo’s Switch Pro controllers. Support for PS5 controllers is “coming in the future,” according to Meta.
There are a variety of display sizes for an immersive VR environment to stream Xbox games in or even an Xbox-themed virtual space on the latest Quest 3 and Pro headsets that takes advantage of full-color passthrough.
The Xbox Cloud Gaming app on Meta headsets is part of a broader partnership between Microsoft and Meta to bring Microsoft Teams, Office, and Windows experiences to VR. Microsoft Teams is about to go 3D in January, with the release of a Mesh-powered VR meeting experience that will be available on Meta’s Quest headsets.
