Last year, Microsoft confirmed that there was an Xbox streaming device as well as a TV app in the works. However, they didn’t give any further information on when they would hit general availability. This comes years after Microsoft tried to launch a streaming stick in 2016 dubbed Project Hobart, but then canceled it.
That said, it looks like we’ll still have to hold on a little longer. But as spotted by Tom Warren on Twitterthe streaming device and TV app may finally be available soon. VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb reiterated the same sentiments shared by Tom and indicated that we will still have to be patient.
Xbox Everywhere includes devices like a TV puck for Xbox Cloud Gaming, apps for TVs, and even Microsoft’s original plan to let you play all the Xbox games you own through the cloud

Remember, the original arrangement was to have them both out, but it’s already been 11 months since the announcement was made. There is no clear indication why they pushed the release to a later date and what prevented them from going ahead with the launch as previously reported. Jeff and Tom’s positive remarks about the Xbox Everywhere initiative might indicate that the release is on track this time around.
