Xbox says its streaming device for cloud gaming is now “years away”

Last year, Microsoft announced that it was working on a new Xbox streaming device for cloud gaming. Earlier this month, the prototype Xbox streamer leaked out in a tweet from Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, seen in the image above. Now, during an interview at The Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live conference, Phil Spencer said the project is “years away.” When asked about the streaming device, Spencer said “Keystone was the codename of something we were incubating internally, which was … a streaming console, so there’s no local gameplay, low-cost, plug it into a TV, and you’d be able to stream Xbox games. In the late spring, we pivoted to working with Samsung. We put an app on Samsung TVs that let you play Xbox games, and I still have the prototype; it sits on the shelf behind my computer.” He then later said “Will we do a streaming device at some point? I suspect we will, but I think it’s years away.”

    Anyone knows how to use xCloud in Fire TV? I can through Amazon Silk, but I wonder if is any way with an app. Officially Android TV is not supported, but the same app of Android works perfectly on Android TV, but if you install in Fire OS TV, it warns you that Google Play Services is needed.
