Play with Project xCloud and an Xbox controller on your Galaxy phone

Microsoft is coming out with a new gaming service this fall, and it will be compatible with Galaxy phones. The new Project xCloud will offer console-quality games that you can enjoy right on your mobile device. Choose from over 100 Xbox titles that will stream directly to your phone, and connect an Xbox controller so you can play anytime, anywhere (internet connection and subscription are required). The service will feature improved latency when using an Xbox controller and will stream at 720p at 60 frames per second. Just make sure you have the Xbox Game Streaming app. Once you do, you’ll be able to start that new RPG or adventure game whenever you like.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries. Project xCloud preview is currently only available to select Xbox Insiders. Microsoft has announced that Project xCloud will launch September 15, 2020.

Get ready for xCloud by pairing your controller

In order to fully enjoy your games, you can connect an Xbox or Xbox-compatible Bluetooth controller to your phone. If you prefer to dock your phone when using a controller, you can attach a controller clip accessory.

1 Before connecting your Xbox controller, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone.
2 Turn on your Xbox controller, and then press and hold the Bind button (located on the top of the controller). Hold the button for 3 seconds and then release it.
3 On your phone, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick settings panel, and then tap Bluetooth. Wait for your controller to appear in the list, and then select it. Tap Done.
4 If your controller doesn’t appear, tap Scan to search for it.
