After the latest batch of new additions to Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft has comfortably brought the total of touch-enabled games for Xbox Cloud Gaming to over 100. Xbox has been steadily adding touch controls to more and more games, and now there's a sizeable library for players to peruse.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, Microsoft appears to have delivered the goods in a big way at their recent Surface event. Zac and Daniel check out everything that was announced, including Surface Duo 2, Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop Studio, and more!
It's a battle of the foldables with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 going head to head with the Surface Duo. Sure, the Duo is a bit older now, but the implementation of the form factor is what we're interested in today. Let's discuss.
Xbox Cloud Gaming is getting several major enhancements today, with the service now officially powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware across the board for improved load times, latency, and performance. Access through the web on iOS devices and PCs is also expanded to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
I finally pulled the trigger on a Surface Duo of my own, just to see whether Microsoft's experimental return to smartphones could persuade me away from the best modern devices. Nine months after launch, has purchasing a new Surface Duo really changed?
Xbox Cloud Gaming recently added beta support for the Surface Duo and its dual screens. I tried it out to see if the pair could compare to the dream of an "Xbox handheld" and came away pleasantly surprised.
Folding smartphones and other devices are gaining interest, according to a new poll by YouGov. Samsung also notes exceptionally high user satisfaction with its Galaxy Z Fold2, with many users interested in buying another. But the folding/dual-screen market still has a long way to go as pricing and durability are still significant factors preventing adoption, for a good reason.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, Zac and Daniel talk about Microsoft's lead in mixed reality computing and their massive $22 billion contract with the US Army. They also look ahead to the Spring Surface lineup and the $499 B&O headphones for Xbox. Plus, the Xbox mini fridge is a reality!
The February 5th Android security update is now rolling out for Surface Duo. The update is likely timed with Surface Duo going on sale in more markets today. The update is only 66 MB in size, and as of now, it is unclear if there is anything new or fixed.
The Surface Duo has been on the market for almost five months now, and as a customer since day one, I've been thoroughly displeased at the pace in which things have been moving in regard to software. The product launched in an incredibly buggy state, and while things have improved since day one, things still aren't where I think they should be for a shipping product.
