Well, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that GTA V is possibly the most popular game of all time. Even after 8 years since its launch, the game is regularly played by millions of people. Even the developers are treating the game any way they can until they release the next big blockbuster, GTA 6. GTA 5’s online mode is endless, and you can literally do it all there. Streamers stream different types of content in GTA 5 Online, such as custom competitions or modified versions of the game.
In order to attract more players, Rockstar Games has played a masterstroke in this pandemic by creating GTA 5 free for all during Epic Games Free Games Month. You might think that an eight-year free-to-play isn’t a big deal, but when the game is GTA 5, it’s a big deal. They earn significant income from the people who got the game for free but willingly spend in the game on upgrades and stuff in the online mode. Now get ready for another big move as you’ll be able to play GTA 5 on Android, and here’s how.
The Play with Friends channel is exactly what it sounds like (a brand new console channel that makes it much easier to play Xbox Game Pass with your friends)

GTA V with Xbox Game Pass
If you continued to follow gaming and tech news, it would probably have occurred to you that a game like GTA 5 would only be playable on mobile phones through cloud play. And yes, that is the correct answer. Microsoft offers cloud gaming on select Xbox Game Pass games. Cloud gaming means playing games on the servers of the company providing this service to you. All you need is a good internet connection, Google Chrome on top of a specific version, and around 2-3 gigabytes of RAM. The device does not matter in cloud games. This can be your laptop, PC, Xbox Gaming console, or Android device.
Xbox Game Pass is having a good time lately, and April has probably been one of the best months of their lives. They announced some great games that will be added to the library, like Major League Baseball The Show 2021 and NFL 2021. 3 days ago Xbox made another announcement on Twitter where they posted a list of all the games that are added to the library in the month of April, and GTA 5 was there too. Not all games have cloud support, but due to the popularity of GTA 5, it’s a very good decision to add it to the list of cloud games.
How to access my mobile
Now answer your biggest question. To play GTA 5 on your mobile devices, the first thing you will need is an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. With this subscription you have access to all games and you have access to cloud play. There is another cheaper pass, where you don’t have access to any cloud games. Once you have purchased the subscription, you can view the list of cloud games in the library by downloading the Xbox app on your mobile device and playing any of the games on your mobile devices. GTA 5 is on this list.
Requirements like internet and all are already mentioned above. Along with this, you will also need a bluetooth game controller. Over 50 games on xCloud support touch control. So you can play them without any controller on your mobile devices. We have seen so many hoax videos since 2013 on Youtube where people show “LEGIT WAYS TO PLAY GTA 5 ON ANY MOBILE”, but they are all bogus and dangerous. It’s the only way out.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will set you back $ 9.99 per month. In India it will cost you Rs 700 per month. If you have never created an Xbox account, you can enjoy the first month for just Rs 50. You will have a clear idea of how cloud gaming works and what kind of internet you need to ensure a smooth gaming experience. . One month is enough to complete as many small games as you will get in the subscription. So you can try cloud gaming and try out your other favorite games, all for Rs 50. After the month expires, it’s up to you to continue or not.
If you are a problem gambler (if there is a term like that) then Rs 700 per month on a gambling service that offers you so much is a steal, in fact. If you are a casual gamer then there are other plans, or maybe you can just enjoy free games by keeping an eye out for games coming out for free in the pandemic.
