Here’s How You Can Enjoy XBox Game Pass on M1 Mac [VIDEO]

Microsoft’s Xbox chief Phil Spencer revealed last year that the company is having “ongoing discussions” about how to overcome the restrictions put in place by Apple’s updated App Store rules and bring its new xCloud video-game streaming service to iPhone and iPad users.


While there’s still time before iOS users will finally be able to join in on the fun, looks like M1 Mac users can already enjoy xCloud games using the Android emulator.

For those who aren’t familiar, Microsoft’s xCloud is a cloud gaming service, which allows subscribers of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to play more than 150 games on Android devices over a data connection at no additional cost.

For now, there is no Bluetooth, keyboard, mouse or touch screen support. Check out the video below to see what you need to do to get started.
