Rainway PC game streaming app pulled from Xbox One

Spread the love

Towards the beginning of last year, a service called Rainway made headlines by announcing that it would allow you to stream your existing PC games to Xbox One. There are already ways to stream PC games to Xbox One — like through Miracast — but that results in a lot of lag. Rainway is much better judging from the beta.

While Rainway isn’t a traditional subscription-based streaming service like PlayStation Now, it still allows you to play all of your existing PC games on a number of devices as long as they’re connected to the internet. You have to download a Rainway client on your PC and then can access your games even from a browser.

A few days ago, the Rainway beta became available on Xbox One. Unfortunately, it was pulled yesterday at the request of Microsoft. Luckily, the team is working with Microsoft to bring the beta back to Xbox One. We don’t know anything about that at the moment.

Hopefully, Rainway will prevail where other services have failed. The main problem with game streaming is the input lag. If your internet connection isn’t strong enough or there’s an issue with the servers, games can become unplayable.

Huge shoutout to Kylerose7298 for the tip.
