Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles will soon be getting a new upgraded Microsoft Edge Chromium-powered browser that is capable of playing Google Stadia.As reported The Verge, testers in Xbox’s Alpha Skip-Ahead group can now access this new version of Edge, and while it still doesn’t have full mouse and keyboard support and is a bit buggy, it appears much better than the current solution.One benefit of a Chromium browser on Xbox is allowing it to work with browser-based streaming services like Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. Additionally, even though Xbox consoles have native access to Xbox Game Pass, this could theoretically also allow for Xbox’s Cloud Gaming through a browser once Microsoft adds support for it in Spring 2021.

Furthermore, this should allow for improved compatibility with browser-based games and services like Skype and Discord through the web.

YESNO

This early version also includes the same or a similar sync engine used on Edge, which allows for extensions, vertical tabs, Collections, and most other featured found on Edge’s desktop version.

While Google may have shut down Stadia’s internal studios, the streaming service is still running and is set to get “more than 100 games” in 2021.
