Tapping on a game will open and launch the game. A new screen showing a racing green rocket will appear, which means that the service is loading the game. After that, the game should be playable. Depending on the game you’ve chosen, you might need to connect a Bluetooth controller to your device. PC owners can, alternatively, use a wired controller, too.
To close a game while using Xbox Cloud Gaming, make sure to save the game before you are ready to exit. Some games will autosave for you while others require a manual save. After saving, look for the … button located in the top-left corner. Press this button to bring up the Quit Game button.
Press Quit Game to close your Xbox game. You will be asked one more time to press Quit Game as confirmation that you wish to close out your Xbox game. Once pressed, you will instantly return to the Xbox Cloud Gaming page.
