How Microsoft Just Transformed Surface Duo Into A Killer Xbox Cloud Gaming Device
The update, which goes live today, brings the touch controls for any Xbox game down to the second screen on the Surface Duo, rather than being overlaid on the game. It makes console gaming on the go much easier and less claustrophobic-feeling than on a regular mobile device. This change also makes the Surface Duo look more like a Nintendo DS, but we digress as it is neat no matter what.
Microsoft also made some tweaks in the Xbox Cloud Gaming app to make life a little better for Surface Duo owners. These changes include making navigation easier, adding columned layouts, and simply making it easier to view content overall. If you own a Surface Duo and want to try this out, the app is now updated on the Google Play Store for download. Also, let us know what you think of this update and the inclusion of dual-screen devices in the comments below.
