Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in an earnings call with investors today announced there are over 10 million Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
Nadella said there were "record levels of engagement" as the number of monthly active users on Xbox Live nears 90 million. Microsoft's xCloud streaming service has "hundreds of thousands" of active users in the beta.
Microsoft announced Xbox hardware revenue was down 20 percent for the quarter ending March 31, 2020. The lower revenue was due to the price drops and sales on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
Overall, gaming revenue decreased one percent year-over-year, while Xbox content and services revenue was up by $33 million or two percent.
Revenue for the entire company increased 15 percent year-over-year to $35 billion. Microsoft reported the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had a minimal impact on the company.
