Farming Simulator 22 on Chromebook – Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming

Farming Simulator 22 was released on the 21st November 2021. Different cloud gaming platforms have since come and gone. But in 2023 the best way to play Farming Simulator 22 on Chromebook is by using Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming.

All you need to do is head to the Google Play Store, install the Xbox Game Pass app, and search for Farming Simulator 22 (FS22). This is the only version of Farming Simulator available on Xbox Game Pass. And as this is cloud gaming, all you need is a decent Internet connection and controller, as all game processing is done on the Xbox servers.

Another way you can play Farming Simulator on a Chromebook is by using Steam Link. The Steam Link app brings desktop gaming to your Chromebook. Basically, you run your games on a computer or laptop that is powerful enough, and stream it to your Chromebook using Steam Link.

So if you have the equipment at home, this can be an easy alternative to a monthly subscription to Xbox Game Pass. However, it does mean having multiple devices running at the same time in your home, so not the ideal solution.
