As Warren states in his tweet, the PC version of Xbox Cloud Gaming looks set to support 1080p streams, which is a nice boost over the Android version, currently locked at 720p. It’ll also support ARM devices such as the Surface Pro X.
As for when we can expect to see it? Microsoft hasn’t provided an estimated window of when it’ll arrive, but Warren says he believes the beta “should be coming out real soon”, so hopefully we’ll be testing it in the near future.
