An Xbox game streaming app for your smart TV might be on the horizon

For some time now, Microsoft has been focusing some of its gaming efforts on game streaming. At the moment, game streaming is only available on Android as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but Microsoft has indicated a number of times in the past that platform-agnostic game streaming is a potential end goal for the company.

Microsoft Edge improved copy and paste will cause headaches

Despite the many innovations in the computing industry, a few things have remained the same throughout the decades.

PS5 could get an Xbox Game Pass rival after all

PS5 could get an Xbox Game Pass rival after all

It isn't exactly a secret that the PlayStation 4 took the crown in the previous generation, with the Xbox One playing second fiddle to it throughout. Microsoft had a hard time pulling together the sales to compete with Sony in the previous generation, but the fact that the Xbox One lagged behind the PlayStation 4 led to the launch of Xbox Game Pass, a subscription-based gaming service that has been warmly received by gamers across Xbox One and PC.
