Microsoft started to preview mouse and keyboard support for Xbox Cloud Gaming in March, and it’s now rolling out to everyone as a beta today. You’ll be able to start streaming and playing Xbox games with a mouse or keyboard in Edge or Chrome over at

In total, 26 games will be supported at the launch of this beta, including Fortnite, Sea of Thieves, and Halo Infinite. Microsoft is also planning to let PC owners use the Xbox app later this month to select a game that has a mouse and keyboard badge in the cloud gaming section.

I tried the mouse and keyboard support earlier this year on Xbox Cloud Gaming, and it’s exactly what you’d expect. You can easily switch between using a mouse and keyboard or a controller during the middle of games, just like you would on a PC or an Xbox that supports mouse and keyboard input. It’s a great addition for gaming on the go, especially as you no longer have to bring an Xbox controller with you to access some games.

  • ARK: Survival Evolved
  • Atomic Heart
  • Cities: Skylines – Mayor’s Edition
  • Cities: Skylines – Remastered
  • Deep Rock Galactic
