It looks like both Google Stadia and Project xCloud will not be released on iOS, due to the strict policies of the Apple App Store. Google has been silent on the matter to date, and Microsoft recently chose to withdraw the trial version of its game streaming service from the app store.

Google Stadia and xCloud not to iOS

There have been some rumors as to why both game streaming services are not actually being promoted for iOS and now it is clear why. An Apple representative has told Business Insider that no game streaming service, not just those of Google and Microsoft, is welcome in the App Store. Apple wants to be able to check every game that can be played for Google Stadia and Project xCloud. And because that is not possible, the applications of the services may not be published.

The App Store was created to be a safe and trusted place for customers to discover and download apps, and a great business opportunity for all developers. Before they go on our store, all apps are reviewed against the same set of guidelines that are intended to protect customers and provide a fair and level playing field to developers.

Our customers enjoy great apps and games from millions of developers, and gaming services can absolutely launch on the App Store as long as they follow the same set of guidelines applicable to all developers, including submitting games individually for review, and appearing in charts and search . In addition to the App Store, developers can choose to reach all iPhone and iPad users over the web through Safari and other browsers on the App Store.

Until Apple adjusts the strict rules, you can therefore not go for both Google Stadia and Project xCloud on iOS and only on Android.
