Microsoft is excited to bring this service to India later this year, and learn from the Indian gaming community. According to the report, Project xCloud was first introduced in India at the future Decoded event which was held at the end of February in Mumbai. At the event, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Reliance Jio chairman, managing director Mukesh Ambani were also there, and they spoke about the gaming culture in India.
For the uninitiated, ProjectxCloud is an online game streaming service that is created to make games more accessible. Some people feel it’s more like Google Stadia, but this service will allow you to stream games from any device without even installing the game.
Now, that’s truly exciting, isn’t it?
