Xbox Game Pass for Android is here, and though the service supports hundreds of games, just over 100 of those support touch controls. The preferred method for playing these games may be to grab one of the best game controllers for Android, but you have the choice to go the old school mobile gaming route and just use the screen of your phone or tablet if you want to.

Microsoft is working with developers to add touch controls to more titles after launch, and more titles are being added all the time. So be sure to keep checking back to see how this list expands over the coming months.

Aside from cloud streaming, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate also brings players a library of several hundred titles available to download to their Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S consoles, with Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks games releasing into the subscription service the same day they launch at retail. In addition, members have access to Xbox Live Gold and EA Play. The value on offer is kind of insane.

Because all new titles from Xbox first-party launch day and date into Xbox Game Pass, we should expect to see more games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks support touch controls as time goes on and the service grows. You can also take a look at the full list of every Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android game available right now.

  • That's sad. PS4 Remote Play and Stadia have built-in touch controls for every game, so I wonder why Microsoft can't implement the same thing?
  • I guess because they chose the route of providing more games if you have a controller rather.
  • Microsoft implements custom controllers for each game individually. It does not just show all buttons. They show only the ones used by the game with custom names.
  • Note that Hellblade touch controls are not available right now in the GamePass app like it was on the xCloud beta app. So best to update this article with (in testing) for Hellblade.
  • Are any of these games actually fun with touch controls? An article on the games that play best with touch controls would be great. It doesn't seem like any tech or gaming sites have created anything like this yet.
  • wish they would let the fold 3 have controller buttons on bottom screen while playing on the top screen. or at least allow you to resize the viewport of the game and move the controller buttons off the game screen.
