Any unused credit that you have prior to signing up with Telstra Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be carried forward and added to your monthly subscription, up to a maximum of 36 months.
Cloud Gaming (Beta) and remote play both let you play Xbox games on your phone or other mobile device.
The difference, is remote play lets you play games currently installed on your broadband-connected Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One consoles - while Cloud gaming lets you play any game currently available on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: no console required, but you will need a compatible device and a controller for most games (sold separately).
Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) is technology that lets you play games directly from the cloud on compatible devices, like a phone or PC. This means you don't need a traditional gaming console to play your favourite console games.
As part of your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription you can enjoy the console games you love and play them with the people you want on the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate app or Xbox.com.
All you need to play is a compatible device and compatible controller (recommended). Device and controller sold separately.
You can log into multiple devices with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but only one game on one device can be played at any one time. If your family often game at the same time, we recommend separate subscriptions. You may receive a signed out elsewhere notification when you sign in.
You have ongoing access to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Library until your subscription is cancelled or expires. If you cancel your subscription, you’ll continue to have access up to the renewal date.
It depends, at HD streaming of a game, you can expect to use up to 3GB per hour.
You’ll get a better gaming experience with a compatible controller but if that’s not an option, touch controls are available on selected games.
Some games have customised touch controls built into them. When browsing cloud games, look for ‘Play with touch’ games which have customised touch controls. To find out more, visit the Xbox Support page Use touch controls for cloud gaming.
When you play through the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate app or a web browser, we recommend an Xbox Wireless Controller connected via Bluetooth or USB cable. Controller sold separately. Many other types of wired and Bluetooth controllers can also work for cloud gaming.

Playing on Wi-Fi
If you’re playing in a fixed location inside a building where Wi-Fi is available, the signal will be more stable and reliable optimising your gaming experience.
Cloud Gaming (Beta) is optimised for 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks. Some dual band routers automatically switch the connection between 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz networks.
To enable Wi-Fi only gameplay, visit the Xbox Support page How to use cloud gaming.
Playing on the mobile network
If you’re gaming on the go on the mobile network, the signal may become less stable or intermittent, resulting in signal drops when changing towers.
Telstra 5G provides faster speeds and more capacity than our 3G and 4G networks, so you are less likely to have bandwidth issues impact your gameplay while on 5G.
Data usage can be high while gaming and may have an impact on your mobile data plan.
To enable gameplay via the mobile network, visit the Xbox Support page How to use cloud gaming.
