Like with Game Pass for Xbox One and PC, games will come and go, but this is the current, up-to-date list of games available right now. And be sure to check out our roundup of the best games from this list if you’re having trouble deciding what to play first through Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Do I have to wait to play first-party games?

Nope! Microsoft said that Game Pass subscribers would get access to most Xbox Game Studios and ID@Xbox titles on launch day, the same as everyone else. This includes titles from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks, the publishers that together compose Xbox first-party studios. It’s worth bearing in mind that not all games will come to the console and cloud gaming versions of Game Pass since some are limited to PC (such as Microsoft Flight Simulator).

How do I get started?

It’s pretty simple. Once you’ve signed up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you’ll need to get the Xbox Game Pass app for Android from either the Play Store or Galaxy Store, depending on your preference and availability. Then, sign into the account you used to sign up for Game Pass Ultimate, and you’ll be good to go on that front.

You can also play in your browser via the website.

What do I need to play Game Pass games on my phone?

Microsoft says that you will need a few things to get started. First up, you need an Android device running Marshmallow (Android 6.0+) or above, with at least Bluetooth 4. The good news there is that it encompasses a ton of modern devices. So if you’re thinking about an upgrade, be sure to check out our best Android phones for Game Pass.

Next, you’ll want an external controller of some kind since most of the available games won’t have a touch input layer applied. You can check our recommendations for the best controllers to get started with that requirement. Basically, you can use a lot of different accessories, including a PlayStation DualShock 4!

Finally, let’s talk internet connection really quick. If you’re on your home Wifi, you’ll want to make sure that you’re connected to the 5Ghz band for maximum bandwidth. You can also use mobile data too, but whatever you’re using, be sure it’s at least a download speed of 10Mbps.

What countries is Xbox cloud gaming available in?

Microsoft has detailed 22 countries for the launch of Xbox cloud gaming for Android. More countries will be added in the future as the program continues to expand. Here’s the current list:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Slovakia
  • Spain
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Getting started

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

$1 for first month, $15/mo after at Microsoft

This is what you’ll need to get started with streaming games to your phone via Game Pass. The Ultimate subscription starts at $1 for the first month, then goes to $14.99 per month after that. It’s the best deal in gaming right now, and you get a ton with your Ultimate sub.

Grab a controller

Xbox One controller

$60 at Amazon

You’re going to need a controller to play Game Pass games on your phone. One of the best recommendations we can make is the official Xbox One controller. Not only is it one of the best ergonomic experiences for gaming, but it pairs right up with your phone.

Clip on your phone

PowerA MOGA Mobile Gaming Clip

If you’re rocking an Xbox One controller or another gamepad that doesn’t include a clip, then you’re going to want some way to hook up your phone to the controller, trust us. This clip is awesome, and it’s quite customizable to find the perfect angle and fit for your phone.

Ultimate mobile gaming solution

Razer Kishi

$100 at Amazon

If you want something incredibly mobile and easier to carry around than an Xbox controller and clip, then be sure to check out the Razer Kishi. It basically turns your phone into a Switch to play Game Pass games. It folds up really small, so it’s easy to take with you anywhere.
