First of all, sorry for bad english lol
The question is simple... Is possible to do a porting of XCloud (Microsoft Cloud Service of game) like someone had done with GeForce Now? How can work if Gamepass App will launch from "Android OS" for Switch?
Thank you to everyone reply to this.

You have 2 options:

1. Use android on the switch and download the game pass app.
2. Use moonlight to stream your desktop and stream Xbox from there. Can't tell about game pass but streaming my xbox one to pc to switch worked surprisingly well. (Xbox and pc are both wired connected.)

Issue is that geforce now exists for quite some time, enough to check how it works and make open source client - Moonlight.

xcloud doesn't have open source client because is not long enough on the market (beside if anyone will do it).

Moonlight connects to Geforce Now? I thought it could only imitate a Shield device for streaming from your own computer.

Point being that Moonlight and Chiaki are open source implementations of what are basically RDP applications, not something more robust like a cloud gaming ecosystem.

I was thinking about that and found only this single thread.

Since the XCloud runs on web browsers, nobody had a magical idea about a homebrew app to run it also on the NS? 👀
