For just over a year, Microsoft has been betting on and has greatly improved the way of playing through the cloud, becoming a mainstay for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate today. According to new reports, it looks like xCloud gamers will be getting a long-awaited feature soon.
As reported by the Klobrille account on Twitter, it seems that Microsoft is preparing to add the option of play with mouse and keyboard on PC when we play titles from the cloud, since previously it was only possible to play in the cloud using a console control or touch controls on compatible devices.

The Xbox Game Pass app for Windows PC has just been updated, and among its new features is the option to filter Xbox Cloud Gaming games that are compatible with mouse and keyboard. A search bar has also been added to xCloud so you can find your favorite cloud games faster.
While there are currently no mouse and keyboard compatible games on Xbox Game Pass with xCloud, Microsoft will likely announce this new feature soon, possibly during Gamescom next week starting on August 24.
For some time now, Microsoft has been updating the games in the Xbox Game Pass catalog in the cloud to be compatible with touch controls on mobile devices, so it is clear that the company’s intention is that its users can access the Xbox catalog Game Pass from any device.
