“Have a look around the new app. More awesomeness is on the way!”, explains Microsoft.

You will be able to use Xbox remote play over Wi-Fi and cellular connections. This means you’ll be able to play your Xbox at home no matter where you are, right on your iPhone or iPad. The release of this updated Xbox app comes ahead of the highly anticipated Xbox Series X and Series S launch on November 10.

This feature connects to your Xbox console and not xCloud, essentially mirroring a similar feature from Sony’s PS4 Remote Play feature, notes The Verge.
