Microsoft finally unveiled the Surface Phone called ‘Surface
Duo’ but it runs Android and comes in the form of dual-screen
Surface Duo, which runs Android and supports Google Play Store
applications, will also come with an innovative gaming
experience that would be based on Microsoft’s Project xCloud.
With Project xCloud, Microsoft plans to make the idea of the
streaming console and PC-quality games to mobile devices or
computing devices a reality. In theory, Project xCloud will let
you stream any Xbox One and PC games to smartphones and
tablets. That means you will be able to play your Xbox game
Microsoft can pull off the dream of gaming on dual-screen
hardware as well. Surface Duo is also an Android device with
two displays and it will apparently support the xCloud gaming.
At the Surface event, Microsoft teased the game streaming
experience on Surface Duo where the dual-screen phone is
running Forza Horizon 4 via Xbox Game Streaming.
In the demo, the game is using the new “Cloud Aware” SDK
commands to display customized controls for the game. For
example, you can see a Y button and the Rewind symbol on a
portion of the device.
