“Microsoft is working on streaming apps and games’




Microsoft is working on a service, Arcadia, which apps and games from the cloud can be streamed, reports ZDnet. It is not clear when the service comes; Microsoft is currently looking for staff for the team that is working on.

Microsoft The technology is currently being developed in a new team, writes Microsoft expert Mary Jo Foley at ZDnet. Microsoft is currently looking for the team for new employees. In one of the vacancies Microsoft calls the project “the next big thing for Microsoft.” Also calls Microsoft experience with iOS and Android a plus, what may suggest that the service is also available for other platforms.

Initially, Microsoft have been planning to stream Android apps and games for Windows devices, but that idea would be pushed into the refrigerator. What Microsoft or intended precisely with the platform, it is not yet clear. Microsoft may want heavy software running on thin clients, something that is already happening with complete desktops. Streaming games is also done for some time, including through OnLive. However, while gamers complain about input lag that cause the services.

Microsoft connoisseur Foley does not expect Microsoft that nothing about the existence of the project has brought out, will soon come up with an official announcement. Foley thinks the service will only appear after the introduction of Windows 10 in the fall of next year.
