Xbox Cloud Gaming on Meta Quest

Xbox Cloud Gaming Now Available on Quest VR

Xbox Cloud Gaming is finally available for the Meta Quest line of VR headsets. While Cloud Gaming is still in beta, users can download the app from the Meta Quest Store. No TV or console is required, but users will need to sign up for a Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Cloud Gaming is now on Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro

The Cloud Gaming app is available now for Meta’s Quest 2, 3, and Pro headsets. Players will need to provide their own wireless Bluetooth controller, though it doesn’t need to be one made for Xbox consoles. In addition to Xbox controllers, Quest’s Xbox Cloud Gaming app supports PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers. Meta’s announcement also promised to add support for PS5 controllers in the future.

Meta’s Cloud Gaming app gives players access to Game Pass’s complete library of over 300 Xbox and PC games. However, it does not add VR functionality to games that don’t already have it. Instead, the headset displays the games on a virtual 2D screen inside an Xbox-themed virtual environment. Meta Quest 3 and Quest Pro users can instead choose to see their real-life surroundings through the headset’s Passthrough feature. Meta’s announcement is unclear whether the Cloud Gaming app supports the more limited Quest 2 version of Passthrough.

Quest’s new Game Pass app is part of an ongoing partnership between Microsoft and Meta. In October 2022, Microsoft announced plans to bring several of its apps to VR. Microsoft Mesh already allows users to conference in augmented reality with a full VR option coming in January. The company also plans to bring the full suite of Microsoft 365 applications to Quest devices.
