Reliance’s New Cloud Gaming Service “JioGamesCloud” Now Available in Beta to Everyone

JioGamesCloud is now available for beta early access to everyone. As it announce three years ago at a Reliance AGM event, the Indian cloud gaming service attempts to bring high-quality titles to its platform, including Saints Row IV, Kingdom Come Deliverance, and many more.

Interested users can sign up for the JioGamesCloud beta programme and test out games from its catalogue, across the JioGames Android app, their web browsers, and the JioFiber set-top box.

Games are available to play instantly without the requirement for any downloads, installations, or updates.

Same as other cloud gaming service, load times and performance are entirely dependent on your internet connection.

As per gamers it ran fairly smooth at 16mbps with full-HD 1080p graphics. 

JioGamesCloud is currently available for free, even those with an Airtel or Vi phone number, as discover.

But later on, it would expect to be lock behind a subscription.

It might function on a recurring monthly subscription akin to Xbox Game Pass, which comes package with Cloud Gaming albeit not in India.

Back in 2020, Reliance Jio confirm that it was working with Microsoft to bring its Project xCloud gaming service to India, but not a single word heard on the matter ever since.

Controller support for JioGamesCloud

On an Android device, JioGamesCloud functions similarly to most phone-based titles, featuring on-screen controls that can be expand via a Bluetooth controller.

On a desktop version of JioGamesCloud relies on a keyboard-mouse setup, with additional support for controllers.

And on both PS5’s DualSense and the Xbox Wireless Controller comes with an Xbox Series X work though the D-pad didn’t function on either, and the DualSense’s controls setup was unusual and couldn’t be change.

The JioGamesCloud FAQ section on the official website notes that you “would need a gaming controller (Bluetooth or Wire) connected to your Set-Top-Box [and the JioGamesNow app to play on your television].”

How to Play Games on JioGamesCloud?

When you Log into the platform requires a phone number, and there’s no need for it to be a Jio SIM card.

Hardware specifications are limited as well, simply demanding a “stable internet connection,” though it does recommend running titles on Google Chrome for the “best gaming experience.”

Games on Android would run on a 5G connection or Wi-Fi, with support running on devices ranging between versions Android 5.0 to Android 12.0.

On mobile, JioGamesCloud is include as a new tab on the JioGames app, listing its limited library, sort by genres.

However, this only seems to be the case with heavier AAA titles, as I found less intensive games such as Ben 10 running buttery smooth.

It’s also worth noting that JioGamesCloud is currently in beta.

While on PC performance was far better, though not considerably.

JioGamesCloud to bring Nvidia GeForce

Atleast for now, the games library on JioGamesCloud is quite limited, though it plans to “keep on enriching” over time. Reliance has also apparently tied up with Nvidia to bring GeForce Now via JioGamesCloud, as confirm by a support team member in the official Discord channel.
