Would steeping oats add mouthfeel to any beer?

I'm not sure, I know you can add it to porters and stouts but that's the extent of my knowledge. It gives a creamier feel to it so I'm I would be choosy with what styles you'd want to add it too.

I'm thinking something along the lines of a Boddington's. Most of my experience drinking it is from the widgeted cans, so I'm thinking a smoother mouthfeel might get that feeling a little? I'm a straight kit and kilo extract brewer at this point, I don't want to get too far away from that, at this point anyway.

I could see that from a boddingtons. Though I find them to be on the malty side. At least their cream ale is.
