Update to Xbox Game Pass turns Surface Duo into a portable Xbox

Microsoft has now released a new update to the Xbox Game Pass app on Android that turns the Surface Duo into a portable Xbox, reports The Verge.

The update makes it possible to use the Surface Duo in its laptop-like “Compose” mode for Xbox Game Pass, so that one screen only shows the game while the other is used for dedicated touch controls.

Xbox Game Pass currently has over 50 games that support touch controls. Among these are titles like Grand Theft Auto 5, Sea of ​​Thieves and Gears 5.

In connection with the update, Microsoft has also improved the streaming experience via Xbox Cloud Gaming for Surface Duo.
