UPDATE: Xbox has advised us that the memo sent by Telstra was outdated and has since been updated. Xbox Console Streaming has in-fact not been confirmed for Australia at this stage.
“At this time, the Xbox Console Streaming preview is available to Xbox Insiders in the United States and the United Kingdom. We look forward to expanding the preview to new markets in the months to come to continue testing the new technology and learning from Xbox Insiders. We have nothing more to share about additional preview markets at this time.”
In an internal document obtained by Stevivor, Michael Ackland (Group Executive of Consumer and Small Business At Telstra) confirmed the news: “also supporting Xbox Console Streaming, offering customers the ability to stream these games from their Xbox console in and out of the home to compatible Android and iOS devices.”
This service will allow you to play your Xbox games on your mobile phone/tablets both in and out of your home by streaming from your Xbox One console. This is similar to the Remote Play for PlayStation users.
This feature was available starting today to US and UK based Xbox gamers that are in the Alpha testing service. It’s unclear when it will come to Australia and whether it’ll be exclusive to Telstra users.
