Download Xbox One titles remotely with the new Xbox Game Pass app
- Microsoft has introduced an Xbox Game Pass app to the Google Play Store.
- The app allows subscribers to view the store, their library, and remotely download games to their Xbox One.
- Microsoft has also discounted the subscription price until the end of the month.
The Microsoft subscription service gives Xbox One owners unlimited access to a carousel of 100 games — including classics and brand new titles — for a $9.99 monthly fee. The service also includes bonuses like discounts on titles and in-game items.
The app doesn’t allow any of these titles to be played on Android — much like Valve’s Steam app — but it does allow for purchases. What’s more, you’ll be able to queue downloads while you’re away from your console (providing you enable ‘Instant-On’ in the settings), meaning you could be ready to go by the time you get home. You’ll also receive notifications about upcoming games (this is a mobile app, after all).
Here’s how the app looks in action:
In addition to the new app launch, Microsoft has also rolled out a deal on the Xbox Game Pass service itself. Until the end of the month, you can subscribe for just $2 (instead of the regular $9.99 fee) for a month’s access, and pick up one month free.
You can download the new app below and find the subscription promotion details here, just be aware that the app may be region restricted until it leaves beta. We’ll let you know when that happens.
