Xbox Gains New Features With Updated Edge Browser, Telecom News, ET Telecom

San Francisco: With its September Xbox Update, Microsoft introduced the new Chromium-based Edge browser to the Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One consoles.

It supports keyboard and mouse and will introduce new features like access to Google Stadia, Discord, web apps, and more, Engadget reports.

Microsoft started testing the Edge update on Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S earlier this year, but now it’s for everyone.

Edge has been the default browser on Xbox One, but not the latest version of Chromium that enables features like Google Stadia gameplay, according to the report.

It promises a “fast, secure, and modern browsing experience right from your console,” Microsoft wrote.

It’s almost identical to the desktop version, with features like vertical tabs, collections, and syncing settings, favorites, history, tabs, and more with other connected devices.

As Reddit users have noted, however, extensions are missing – so you won’t be able to use an ad blocker at this time.

With mouse and keyboard support, gamers will find it much easier to use productivity apps, according to the report.

Most importantly, you will be able to play Google Stadia or Steam PC games with a mouse and / or the Xbox controller. At this time, there is no microphone support for live chats on Discord or other apps, according to The Verge.

The new features are now available on all Xbox consoles.
