We already knew that Microsoft was planning to release its cloud gaming service onto Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox One this holiday season if you are subscribed to Game Pass Ultimate. Now, select Xbox Insiders can test the feature out on their Xbox consoles.

Starting today, Xbox Insiders with the Alpha and Alpha Skip-Ahead rings will be able to access Xbox Cloud Gaming right from their Xbox hardware. The inclusion of Xbox Cloud Gaming on consoles will allow users the chance to play a game through the cloud before committing to taking up storage on their Xbox console to install a new game.

The move comes as part of the many steps Microsoft is taking to make Xbox games available on almost any device. Earlier this year, the company announced that it would extend the Xbox One lifespan by using Xbox Cloud Gaming to bring Series X/S titles to the eighth-generation console.

Microsoft is also planning to build a global ecosystem that would see the Xbox experience on devices including smart TVs and streaming sticks, so you can experience these games without even owning Xbox hardware, though Microsoft insists that playing its games on its hardware will remain a flagship experience.
