Cloud streaming is coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and while it has over 150 titles in its library at launch, only a handful of those support touch controls. A controller may be the preferred method to play these games, 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.
Every game with touch controls on Xbox Game Pass (xCloud) for Android
- Dead Cells
- Gear 5 (in testing)
- Guacamelee! 2
- Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
- Hotshot Racing
- Killer Instinct
- Minecraft Dungeons
- New Super Lucky's Tale
- Slay The Spire
- Streets of Rage 4
- Tell Me Why
...That's it, unfortunately. Microsoft is working with developers to add touch controls to more titles after launch, but as of right now, you only have about a dozen games, with Gears 5 to look forward to in the future.
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 games releasing into the subscription service the same day they launch at retail. In addition, members have access to Xbox Live Gold and soon EA Play, which is expected to join the service this year.
Your key to game streaming
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.

Slay the spire is perfect for touch controls.
Does the xCloud app have a filter for these games?
Do touch controls support second screen on duo? If you that seems the perfect argument for it.
I'm a little confused, last I tried touch didn't work on the home screen for remote play. How can you remote play a game with touch when to home Xbox interface doesn't let you use touch?
You can't. Remote play is like it was on the old Windows 10 streaming. You have to have a controller. The screen controls are actually put into the Game Pass app for cloud streaming, thats why there are only a few so far.
I would love to have the app on my Nintendo Switch. It's already set up for gaming on the go!
