Microsoft’s Xbox gaming console has supported mouse and keyboard input variants for quite some time now, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the controller. With Xbox Cloud Gaming, a gaming service has been launched that is supposed to keep up with NVIDIA’s GeForce Now, Stadia and Co. So far, Stadia has had the advantage of supporting keyboard and mouse, which has not been the case with Microsoft’s service so far. However, during a session at XFest 2022, it was mentioned that PC and Xbox gamers will soon be able to play with mouse and keyboard in the cloud and that developers can build in the support.
Microsoft is adding keyboard and mouse support to Xbox Cloud Gaming soon. Xbox devs are being encouraged to add support to games now so they light up in xCloud once the integration is ready https://t.co/nBlgat5voJ pic.twitter.com/aYc5HftCia

Will certainly please many, as some games are better controlled with a keyboard and mouse than with a controller. You can watch the full session on YouTube.
