Xbox One keyboard & mouse support heading to Insiders

Xbox One keyboard & mouse support will head to Xbox Insiders soon, Microsoft has advised.

“Today we’re announcing a new way to play games on Xbox: we’re enabling mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One for select Xbox Insiders in the coming weeks,” a new post on Xbox Wire reads.

“With this new input support at the platform level, developers can now build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose. It’s important to note that mouse and keyboard support for games is added on a title-by-title basis, entirely at developers’ discretion,” Microsoft said.

“For all other titles, nothing changes. Mouse and keyboard input is not enabled by default for games. Each development team knows their titles best and we support them in creating the right experience for their games as they see fit, to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience.”

One of the first games to test out keyboard & mouse input on Xbox One is the free-to-play Warframe.

Microsoft advised it will also partner with Razer for official peripherals.

We’ll let you know when Xbox One keyboard & mouse support heads to retail builds.
