  1. Why is the 'play' button greyed out on Xbox Cloud Gaming


    I've tried it on both mine and my husband's accounts, on about 8 different devices in total. All games on all devices and all accounts, the 'play' button is greyed out.

    Pc- Cloud gaming play button greyed out

    You are not alone. I am having the same issue. There must be another outage at M$. It's funny how a TV maker's game streaming service works flawlessly with very, very few outages but the biggest Software company in the world, struggles. Makes you wonder.
