Xbox Game Pass for Android is here, and though the service supports hundreds of games, only some of those support touch controls. The preferred method for playing these games may be to grab a controller, but you have the choice to go the old-school mobile gaming route and just use the screen of your phone or tablet. Luckily, support for touch controls is growing, with an increasing number of titles becoming available to play this way.

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.

Play with touch controls

Xbox Game Pass for Android offers the ability to play many games using touch controls on your mobile device, removing the need for a controller if you want a convenient way to pick up and play. Of course, not all games are supported, and picking up one of the best game controllers for Android might be a better way to experience these games on your phone, but it's great to have the option. 

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 ridiculous.

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 the service grows. You can also take a look at the complete list of every Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android game available right now.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a phenomenal deal, available in 22 and supporting cloud streaming with over 150 titles. Only a handful support touch controls right now, but more are to come. With Xbox Live Gold, EA Play, and access to the entire Xbox Game Pass catalog, it's easily one of the best-valued packages in gaming.
