The second screen of Surface Duo can be used as a touch controls

Microsoft Surface Duo recently received an update that allows users to use the second screen as a virtual controller to play games. Xbox Cloud Gaming, a cloud gaming service owned by Microsoft, has some new games that support touch operations with mapped handle keys.

This update allows Surface Duo to play more than 50 Xbox Cloud Gaming games. Users only need to have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Panos Pany, Microsoft’s chief product manager, said on Twitter

In the past few months, Xbox has been secretly adding touch control functions to a number of games in the Xbox Game Pass library. Currently, as many as 66 games support such operations. Microsoft chose to equip it with two separate screens instead of a whole foldable screen, which has made it easier for the Surface Duo to display images on a single screen while the other screen is used for touch controls.
