While we await the arrival of Google Stay and Project xCloud, users have several options for playing their games for consoles and PC in the mobile. PlayStation has your app, Valve has its own and for Xbox there is also another, OneCast, until today only for iOS. However, you say “until today” because the app has come to Android in the form of beta.
OneCast is not an official mobile app, everything is said. It merely serves to do streaming of video games from Xbox One to mobile. It is important to emphasize the fact that it only supports Xbox One. Earlier consoles are not supported, so if you have an Xbox 360 you will not be able to use it.
Free during the process of beta –
OneCast must be downloaded from the official website of the project, at least for now. The developers say that once it is polished and all errors are corrected, will be displayed in the Google Play Store. You can access it from this link.
There are a couple of considerations to take into account, as it is advisable to have the console, connected to the Internet using a network cable. Being connected to the WiFi, it is possible that the connection is not entirely stable and, therefore, that the game experience is not at all smooth. It is also recommended that you connect the mobile to the 5 GHz band of the router.
it is Worth noting that it is possible to use the command console to play on mobile, as long as you’re close enough to the Xbox. Why? Because the control is not connected to the mobile, but rather to the console so that the commands are sent to the Xbox. That being said, the application will guide you through the process to complete the initial setup.
OneCast is able to make streaming up to full hd (1080p) and, theoretically, it is compatible with any game. However, it is still a beta, so it may be unstable. It is completely free for now, but when it launches in Google Play will be a test of seven days with the option to buy it complete, if we stick to the price on iOS, 12.99 a € via in-app.
