Brought Microsoft has 16 original games from Xbox and Xbox 360 to the company’s Xbox cloud game service called xCloud.

And fun for preserving gaming history being able to take a trip in memory to either relive flashbacks or create new ones with a classic.

Microsoft enabled this experience through the backward compatibility program, which was launched in 2015, and the company has been committed since then to making cross-generational games available to you, regardless of hardware.

Games like Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Banjo-Kazooie, and Fallout: New Vegas are now available for streaming on Android devices.

The software giant is also enabling touch controls for Jetpac Refueled, Viva Pinata and Viva Pinata TIP games.

The 16 games are supposed to be available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members and can be streamed on Android phones and tablets.

Microsoft says: We have heard the comments, including going back to the oldest preview of cloud games, and the issue of making games from previous generations available via mobile devices was one of the most requested features of the community.

Microsoft also still plans to expand the broadcast of xCloud games to iOS this spring, and the company hasn’t revealed exactly when its iOS preview will start, but it has previously promised to bring xCloud to iOS and the web browser in the spring of 2021.

Streaming games will also be available on the Xbox app for Windows 10 computers.

Microsoft is also testing the 1080p broadcast for xCloud, and it is likely that this resolution will appear for the first time with the Windows version of the application.

The company has enabled touch controls for Jetpac Refueled, Viva Pinata and Viva Pinata TIP games, allowing you to easily take care of your garden.
