Xbox Cloud Gaming Will Soon Support Mouse and Keyboard

Xbox Cloud Gaming service recently added Flight Simulator allows players to play the game on Xbox One, phones, tablets, and web browsers via the cloud, but players can't use a keyboard and mouse for control. That, however, will change according to Flight Simulator Head, Jorg Neumann.

Spotted by Windows Central, Neumman said in a developer Q&A that Microsoft is working on adding platform-level support for the feature, suggesting most games on Xbox Cloud Gaming could eventually include the input method.

"So the platform team is working on this. I know I can't give a date because it's the platform team. I don't know their dates, but it's coming," he said. "I’m hoping it will be done by June or so, but I can’t ever tell."

The support of a keyboard and mouse would mean that players can play games like Halo Infinite without a gamepad. It would also mean that PC exclusive titles can be more easily made available for the service.
