Xbox Cloud Gaming, nee Project xCloud, lets you play a subset of Xbox Game Pass games on a device other than the console, streaming from the cloud, a la Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now. However, to use it, you must be an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, which costs $15 per month or $160 annually (Four with three month subscription code) For Windows PC, it lets you play games otherwise your system may not have the power or space to play them locally via Game Pass for PC.

I am not here to review Xbox Cloud Gaming, which requires a fast internet connection for smooth gameplay. Instead, I’m highlighting the best controllers and accessories to use with supported devices. As you might expect, the various iterations of Xbox controllers are your primary options, but there are plenty of other controllers and accessories to choose from and some designed specifically for Android smartphones and iPhones.


According to Microsoft, it is Official list of supported controllers, but you will find other people who work. Microsoft says that if you’re using a web browser to play cloud games, the Xbox Wireless Controller is “the only controller currently officially supported.” However, “other controllers may or may not work for cloud gaming on the browser.”

I will update this list as more new controllers and accessories are released and we test additional products.
