As if you were watching Netflix, well. Although playing xCloud with your Game Pass app is simple, in this guide we will explain how to play xCloud in Mexico with Game Pass and your cell phone.

How to play xCloud in Mexico with Game Pass and your cell phone
To play xCloud in Mexico with Game Pass you must update your Android app.
On Android, you must update it from the Google Play Store. Once you have your application updated, open it and follow the instructions below:
Step 1: On the main screen of your Game Pass app, make sure you have the option selected Cloud. That will make you only see the games compatible with xCloud and that you can play, either with a controller connected by Bluetooth, or with touch controls. If you want to play with a Blueeoth controller, skip to Step 4.
Step 2: If you want to play with touch controls, select a game with the icon with one hand and the index pointing. We select Streets of Rage 4. Click on the game and select Play.
Step 3: The game will start to load. At the end, you will see the game screen with touch controls superimposed on the game. Enjoy, maybe it is not a perfect experience (remember that you will play better with a faster internet), but hey, these are console games on your mobile!
The following steps apply only if you play on your cell phone with a wireless controller:
Step 4: Prepare your Bluetooth control and go to the section Settings from your cell phone. Look for the connections section and go to the Bluetooth menu to pair your control. We use an Xbox One controller, so it appears as Xbox Wireless Controller, select Link.
Step 5: Reopen your Game Pass app and select a game, although still selecting the tab Cloud. If your controller was successfully paired, you can use it to navigate Game Pass. We test it with Forza Horizon 4, so enjoy.
The iPhone and iPad also have the Game Pass app, however at the time of editing this guide (Oct 30, 2021) the cloud play option was not yet available on iOS. We will update this guide as soon as the option is enabled.
Playing Game Pass from the cloud on your PC is even easier, since the process is done from the Xbox application for PC. Also, make sure you have it updated. Then follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Xbox app and select the tab that says Cloud games. If you have a controller, you can connect it wirelessly (here we explain how) or through a USB cable.
Step 2: If your internet works well and your control is connected you will see a check mark on the boxes Control and Net. You are ready to play, so select a game. We choose Man Eater. Enjoy!
Remember that if you want to quit the game, simply move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner and click on the three horizontally aligned dots. Several options will appear, including exiting the game.
xCloud: requirements for playing in the cloud
Microsoft notes that to play in the cloud with Game Pass and xCloud an internet connection of at least 10 Mbps is required and, preferably, 5 GHz WiFi or mobile data.
We tested xCloud with a 30 Mbps connection, but with 2.4 GHz WiFi technology. While our experience was satisfactory, we could not say that it was entirely optimal and we constantly saw a message saying that the game would be better with a 5 GHz WiFi connection .
And just in case…
xCloud is the service of streaming from Microsoft that allows you to play a selection of Xbox titles on multiple devices. This not only allows you to play from anywhere, but also eliminates the need for a powerful console. And is that lately Microsoft is more concerned about its audience playing in all possible ways than selling consoles.
The company wants you to subscribe to its service streaming which hosts a large number of games, many of which are available through xCloud. This includes new Xbox Series X titles, as well as older Xbox One and earlier titles.
Without a doubt, this service is beneficial for everyone. Gamers can access the newest games at an affordable price, while Microsoft makes a profit without creating expensive hardware. Of course, while the company is still in the console business, from a business perspective having monthly subscribers is ideal, more predictable, and in many cases more profitable than selling hardware. For all this, xCloud is an attractive service that probably marks the beginning of what will be the future of video games.
