The Razer Kishi is a recently-launched smartphone accessory that snaps around a phone to give it physical in-game controls. Its controls include analog mechanical thumbsticks, which might be handy in the course, of, say, using Xbox Game Pass. Conveniently, the Kishi now works with this new cloud-gaming solution for Android.

Xbox Game Pass for Android is a cloud-gaming service introduced by Microsoft in conjunction with Samsung's Galaxy Note 20-series launch. It allows for about a hundred titles on the console platform to be streamed to a mobile device. Therefore, this may be a good use-case for a Bluetooth controller with all the buttons.

Accordingly, Razer has announced that the latest variant of its own latest snap-on smartphone accessory has been redesigned to work with Game Pass. Its convincing array of controls, pressable thumbsticks included, remain in the same place, and it also offers the "ultra-low latency" of the original Bluetooth device.

Nevertheless, the OEM asserts that it is the ideal accompaniment to this new service (even though it does also closely resembles the Nintendo Switch interface).

This latest batch of the product is called the Kishi for Android (Xbox), and also comes with a 14-day free trial of the service. It is priced at US$99.99, although it is also currently out of stock on Razer's website.
