Xbox Game Pass for Android is a service that allows you to play games on your phone and your console through streaming. If you're a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, you can download the Game Pass app from the Play Store, pair up a compatible controller, and get gaming! You can even pick up your save where you left off on your console.

Not all games on the service are created equal, though. Some games allow touch controls, meaning you can bypass the controller altogether if you like. Many of the games available on Game Pass can be played on your phone, but not all. That being said, here's what you need to know about the games on Xbox Game Pass for Android.

Like with Game Pass for Xbox One and PC, games will come and go, but this is the current, up-to-date list of games available right now. And be sure to check out our roundup of the best games from this list if you're having trouble deciding what to play first through Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Do I have to wait to play first-party games?

Nope! Microsoft said that Game Pass subscribers would get access to most Xbox Game Studios and ID@Xbox titles on launch day, the same as everyone else. This includes titles from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks, the publishers that together compose Xbox first-party studios. However, it's worth noting that not all games will come to the console and cloud gaming versions of Game Pass since some are limited to PC (such as Microsoft Flight Simulator).

How do I get started?

It's pretty simple. Once you've signed up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you'll need to get the Xbox Game Pass app for Android from either the Play Store (opens in new tab) or Galaxy Store (opens in new tab), depending on your preference and availability. Then, sign in to the account you used to sign up for Game Pass Ultimate, and you'll be good to go on that front.

You can also play in your browser on the Xbox.com/play website.

What do I need to play Game Pass games on my phone?

Microsoft says that you will need a few things to get started. First up, you need an Android device running Marshmallow (Android 6.0+) or above, with at least Bluetooth 4. The good news is that it encompasses a ton of modern devices. So if you're thinking about an upgrade, be sure to check out our best Android phones for Game Pass.

Next, you'll want an external controller of some kind since most available games won't have a touch input layer applied. You can check our recommendations for the best controllers to get started. Basically, you can use a lot of different accessories, including a PlayStation DualShock 4 or the PS5's DualSense!

Finally, let's talk about internet connection real quick. If you're on your home Wi-Fi, make sure to connect to the 5Ghz band for maximum bandwidth. You can also use mobile data too, but whatever you're using, be sure it's at least a download speed of 10Mbps.

What countries is Xbox cloud gaming available in?

Microsoft has detailed 26 countries for the launch of Xbox cloud gaming for Android. More countries will be added in the future as the program continues to expand. Here's the current list:

  • Argentina
  • Austria
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Slovakia
  • Spain
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Thailand
  • United Kingdom
  • United States
  • Vietnam

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on your phone

With Xbox Cloud Streaming now well established, everyone who subscribes to Game Pass Ultimate can benefit from a vast library of games ready to be played on their mobile device. These games are constantly updated, with new additions every month alongside some that leave the service to keep things fresh. The list of countries in which Xbox Cloud Streaming is available has also increased over time. We'll keep this article updated, so you never miss new games or countries to play them in. 

If you have Game Pass Ultimate but have yet to try out Xbox Cloud Streaming, there are many benefits of playing games in this way. You can pick up from where you left off with robust and stable streaming, while the ability to easily play with a controller means you don't lose much from the experience compared to playing at home. If you fancy gaming on your phone but don't have a controller in hand, many of the games on the above list are playable with touch controls

Xbox Core wireless controller

You're going to need a controller to play Game Pass games on your phone. One of the best recommendations we can make is the official Xbox Core controller. Not only is it one of the best ergonomic experiences for gaming, but it pairs right up with your phone.

Razer Kishi

If you want something incredibly mobile and easier to carry around than an Xbox controller and clip, then be sure to check out the Razer Kishi. It turns your phone into a Switch to play Game Pass games. It folds up small, so it's easy to take with you anywhere.
