    There is a browser form and a Test app . MS introduces stuff as Dogfood

    This is where its at now
    "
    The PC Game Streaming Preview Client is available from the Show in Store link after joining the "Xbox Game Streaming (Preview)" flight.
    The Mobile clients for the MS Internal Xbox Game Streaming Preview can be found at the links below. On your device navigate to the following pages and follow instructions to download and install the Xbox Game Streaming Preview app. You will need to use your MS Corporate e-mail alias when you sign-in to MS App Center."

    Previously it was just an executable on aka.ms . But I'm talking almost 2 years ago now from when it first was available.

    I hope, MS isn`t waiting for the iOS 14.5 release. (Only iOS/iPadOS/tvOS 14.5 support Xbox Series controllers.)

    I posted how to try it yourself in the PC forum, courtesy of an Ars Technica article detailing how. You end up downloading the beta app from a MS server by teasing out a link with a third-party site. I tried it back on April 4th and it worked (it’s predictably not perfect via wifi, but it’s still cool and probably good enough with non-twitch games).

    That's had touch controls for a while. It was one of the first titles.

    It's still touch controller overlay. The only game with native touch elements I've played is Minecraft dungeons. Hope we see more of that.
