The team at Project xCloud have released a March preview update showcasing some of the new features coming to the cloud streaming service in the near (and distant) future. And if you're fan of Yakuza 0, you'll be pleased to know you can start playing it with xCloud right now.
You can see the video above, in which Platform GM Kevin LaChapelle and Product and Strategy GM Catherine Gluckstein discuss the service's current status. Interestingly, they also mention that in the past few weeks, some games have been played more on Project xCloud than on Xbox for the first time ever.
Another noteworthy point relates to touch controls. Later in the video, Gluckstein showcases a very brief look at touch controls working with Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice on xCloud, and also notes that they're working with teams at Rare and The Coalition to make games work better on the service. No details on when touch controls will be available just yet, but they're definitely on the way.

Keep in mind that you'll require a 6.0+ Android phone with 4.0+ Bluetooth support, a compatible Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, and a 5GHz Wi-Fi or mobile data connection with 10Mbps down.
