How do I play Minecraft Dungeons through cloud gaming (beta)?
As of September 15, 2020, you can play Minecraft Dungeons on Android mobile devices via the Xbox Game Pass app, available on the Google Play Store and the Samsung Galaxy Store (Samsung devices only). A Game Pass Ultimate subscription is also required to play games from the cloud through the Xbox Game Pass app.
Please see How to Use Cloud Gaming on the Xbox support site for an in-depth guide to using cloud gaming.
What input methods can I use to play?
Minecraft Dungeons is fully optimized with native touch controls and has a redesigned interface to make it easy to navigate the inventory and in-game menu on a smaller screen. We’ve also created new overlays and custom layouts to optimize the game for touch.
You can also use standard controllers, such as the Xbox wireless controller, to play Minecraft Dungeons on cloud gaming. Check the Xbox Support site for a list of supported/tested controllers and how to connect them to your mobile device.
How does multiplayer work with cloud gaming?
You can jump on your mobile device and play online co-op mode with your friends playing on Xbox One. In November 2020, when Minecraft Dungeons enabled cross-platform play, mobile players were able to join forces with friends on Windows PCs and other consoles.
How do save files work with cloud gaming?
Character save data in Minecraft Dungeons on cloud gaming is the same as those used with Xbox One cloud game saves. Be sure to see the Xbox Cloud Game Saves FAQ for more details.
Does my existing downloadable content (DLC) carry over to cloud gaming?
Any DLC or add-ons you previously purchased for Minecraft Dungeons, specifically on Xbox One, are also available on cloud gaming. If you can’t use game content while cloud gaming that you normally use on your Xbox console, check to make sure you purchased the content through the same account you use to sign in to the Game Pass app.
