Xbox’s Edge browser will soon support GeForce Now
Death Stranding and more will be playble on Xbox consoles
Nvidia’s GeForce now service will soon be playable on Xbox consoles, thanks to a new update.
The latest GeForce Now client, which rolled out to users on October 21, includes beta support for the Microsoft Edge browser, meaning Xbox players will be able to stream their PC games to their consoles, using Edge.
The service, which Nvidia claims can outperform an Xbox Series X, allows players to stream a selection of their PC library with extremely low latency.
This could potentially offer another avenue for Xbox players to play games that have yet to arrive on the platform, such as Death Stranding.

This follows the substantial leak of titles speculated to come to the GeForce now platform, including a Steam port of God of War, which was later confirmed.
The Edge browser was previously blocked from accessing GeForce now, but with this update, Microsoft has allowed a competitor to its own Xbox Cloud Gaming to be accessible for the first time.
The previous update to Edge, which arrived in September 2021, saw users able to play games via Google’s Stadia platform through the Edge browser on Xbox consoles.
September’s Xbox update also introduces two new ways for PC users to play Xbox games remotely.
Following the latest updates to the Xbox app, Windows 10 PC users can stream Xbox Game Pass titles from the cloud and stream games from their home consoles.
Xbox Cloud Gaming on Windows PCs through the Xbox app was first made available in August for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers signed up to the Xbox Insider programme before opening up to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 22 countries this month.
Microsoft has also enabled remote play in the Xbox app, enabling users to stream Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles to PCs.
