Microsoft has rolled out the Public Preview for Project xCloud, which allows participants to see what the Xbox Team has in store for gamers regarding service speed, games, and streaming across different devices.
Although Google Stadia is releasing next month, the Xbox Team is trying to get ahead of the anti-consumer service with one of their own: Project xCloud.
I’m not sure why you would want to get in on this, but folks interested in Project xCloud and the Public Preview can only join through invites. Additionally, Microsft only welcomes players with an eligible mobile device or controller to sign up.
Proud of the #ProjectxCloud team for launching the public preview – it’s an exciting time at Xbox. Invitations are rolling out now and will continue over the coming weeks. We’re excited for all of you to help shape the future of game streaming.

Nevertheless, the company anticipates many people coming over to register, but a limited number of spots are available, and invites may not go out until several months after registration.
If you happen to be one of the many chosen to begin the technical preview, you should receive an email.
