Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming service, xCloud, is getting a few upgrades in the near future. The company has started encouraging developers to add mouse and keyboard support to more of their xCloud compatible games and to reduce latency on the service, Microsoft said during its Xbox Game Streaming discussion at xFest.

The mouse and keyboard support feature hasn’t made it to xCloud’s PC users yet. But Microsoft says that developers can begin adding support to their games now, that way the feature will turn on on Xbox Cloud Gaming as soon as it’s available.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is included as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions, and allows players to stream Xbox games on mobile devices, PCs, and some TVs.

While not every title in the Game Pass library is compatible with xCloud, there are dozens of titles on the list that players can stream both from Microsoft and from third-party developers.
