xCloud service still has room for improvements, as users share their experience

After several months of testing that generated favourable feedback, Microsoft launched its xCloud gaming streaming service in September bundled with its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. This allowed consumers and gaming industry journalists enough time to fully test its performance and capabilities without restrictions. So far, it seems to generate a mixed bag of feedback from those who have played it for close to a month now.

For now, a major gripe that gamers have with the cloud-gaming platform is its limited device compatibility. Although it is considered to be no longer in beta, there are still some missing features that will be eventually added down the line. In its current state, many agree that it still has the potential to beat its rivals such as Google’s Stadia, Amazon’s Luna, Sony’s PlayStation Now, and NVIDIA’s GeForce Now, reports The Verge.

However, it is difficult for reviewers to make a solid conclusion when it is only accessible on Android devices. Microsoft plans to make it available for iOS hardware soon via a web-based portal in order to circumvent certain restrictions Apple has established for game streaming apps on its App Store. xCloud was originally envisioned to bridge the gap between mobile devices, game consoles, and PC.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently replied to a Twitter post by @Vyyyper asking when users can expect to have the game streaming service on PC and supported game systems. “Yes, we want to do this. It’s in the long list of cool things the xCloud team is working on, just a bit further down the list. But we want console and PC players to be able to browse as easily as mobile players, it’s a good gamepass feature,” he wrote.

Globe gains momentum on data and video experience improvements, well-ahead of aggressive builds

Globe gains momentum on data and video experience improvements, well-ahead of aggressive builds

Globe has been consistently upgrading its network and accelerating infra builds as part of its efforts to provide better data experience and connectivity to its subscribers. Prior to the pandemic in 2019, Globe spent P51 billion in capex to increase its builds, putting up 139% more cell sites compared to 2018.  As a result, 4G base stations of the company increased, putting up 28% more than 2018, doubling the deployment of massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) sites, thus considerably adding more data capacity.

For 2020, the company committed to spend Php 50.3 billion in capex, a large portion of which is allotted for its network upgrade initiatives.  This year there is a lot of optimism to do more infrastructure builds with the implementation of the Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) No. 01 s. 2020 signed by the Department of Information and Communications Technology, Department of Interior and Local Government, Anti-Red Tape Authority and other government agencies and the recent signing of the Bayanihan 2  We Recover As One Act, which aim to shorten the process of issuing permits to build. For the 2-month period from August to September, Globe was able to secure a total of 715 permits, this would enable builds in areas from Bangued in Northern Luzon to Butuan City in the Caraga Administrative Region in Northeastern Mindanao. Despite the pandemic, Globe’s critical skeletal workforce composed of engineers, installers, repairmen and other personnel has continued to work on network improvements and site builds to ensure unhampered connectivity for subscribers.

For 2021, Globe undertakes an even more aggressive network upgrade and expansion by focusing on 4G/LTE for a
