XBOX cloud gaming now runs on Linux!
mcphail Apr 29, 2021
I received an invite to try the new xbox cloud gaming (beta) service on "your Apple mobile device or Windows 10 PC". Naturally, I tried it on Ubuntu Mate 20.04, using the chromium snap and the sc-controller snap. Worked like a charm!

That's a surprise, would have thought they would put some limiting in place like Amazon did with Luna.

It wouldn't surprise me if they lock it down after the closed beta. I think it is fair to say there's no technological reason for them to do that; it works well enough on Linux.

If they can turn a profit on Game Pass subscriptions I don't see what they would gain by locking out Linux users. And for the near future the aim of the game is to pump up subscriber numbers regardless of whether they make a profit.
