While all eyes may be on what's in store from the next Xbox, the so-called Project Scarlett, it's not the only hand Microsoft has in the next-gen gaming space. It's also pushing its Project xCloud game streaming service – which is set to get considerably better in the coming months.

Currently in a limited preview mode, Project xCloud lets you stream full Xbox One games to mobile devices from the cloud. In 2020, it's going to expand beyond its current mobile constraints to serve games up to Windows 10 PC users, too.  Currently available to select users in the UK, US and Korea, it's also going to expand to support play in Canada, Japan and Western Europe.

And while it's not yet being given a launch date for all gamers to try, it is also expanding accessory support for the service too – you'll soon be able to pair up PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 pads with the service, as well as gamepads from Razer.

And that's not all. According to the press release accompanying the news:

"In 2020 we will enable gamers to stream from the cloud Xbox games that they already own or will purchase. We will also add game streaming from the cloud to Xbox Game Pass. Gamers will be free to discover, choose, and play their favorite games anywhere and everywhere."

Rounding off the Project xCloud announcements is the news that more than 50 new titles will become available to stream through the service, too.
