I've not had any problems with button mappings or anything like that, but I guess it could be a device specific problem?

I picked up a cheap micro to USB C lead from Amazon for a couple of quid which has done the job nicely and is the perfect length to go between the phone and controller with no excess which is nice!

Just in case anyone was on the edge of their seats waiting for an update, my PS4 pad paried up no problem with no button assignment issues and no discernible lag. The share and options buttons are even mapped to the corresponding (erm) rectangles and .... lines buttons on the Xbox One pad.

Have found latency to be close to non existent on most occasions, although i did have one session where it just never cleared up and was continually lagging. Ran a speed test and everything was ok on my end so i'm guessing it was server side.

Biggest issue is that my Pixel 2 screen is just too small to play a came with any level of comfort. I don't see it being something i will use unless it makes it over to iOS, where i can use my larger iPhone screen or my iPad.

Which controller is he using for his phone? It looks pretty good.

If it’s the one in the thumbnail, the Razr Kishi. USB C connection so no latency issues that some notice on Bluetooth.

Tempted to get a Chromebook for this, but maybe I'll just wait until they bring it to Windows and try it on my laptop instead...

Either way it would be nice to have it on a larger screen.

Thanks. I got one from Amazon and it fits my phone perfectly. Playing Sea of Thieves on my phone in the park with no noticeable lag was like magic!

I really need to dig into my router settings or something because I still find the lag makes anything even remotely fast paced essentially unplayable with xCloud

Nice. I love the concept, i just think my screen is a bit too small. Its amazing just how small typical console text is when scaled down to a circa 5" display. Will definitely look in to it again if it makes it over to Apple (though frustratingly the Kishi controller would not fit it because it is USB-C).
