Xbox Consoles New Browser Can Stream Steam Games, Including Death Stranding

And yes some Xbox users are now able to stream PC games to their consoles, via a test version of Microsoft’s Edge Chromium-powered browser and GeForce Now.

As reported lately, Xbox testers in the Alpha Skip-Ahead group can now access the updated Microsoft Edge web browser on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X consoles.

Thanks to the improved compatibility support with Chromium, the browser will run web browser apps such as those for Google Stadia, Discord and more.

Crucially, GeForce Now’s compatibility means that Xbox players can stream many of their Steam games to their console, including PlayStation console exclusive Death Stranding, and ray-traced enabled versions of Cybperunk 2077, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and more.

GeForce Now also supports the Epic Games Store, which means users can stream its store exclusives including Hitman 3, Fortnite and Rogue Company.

Sony’s other former console exclusives Horizon Zero Dawn and Detroit: Become Human are not currently supported by the streaming service.

According to Joe Chip (in a video below), because the Edge browser does not currently support a mouse on Xbox, some games which require mouse and keyboard, such as Quake 2 RTX, do not play well via the browser.

GeForce Now is available for free, as well as via a subscription for faster access and RTX support.

The service differs from other services such as Google’s Stadia by allowing players to stream their existing Steam and Epic Game Store libraries onto a number of devices such as smartphones or laptops.

It was confirmed on Sunday that the new Edge Chromium-powered browser can run Google Stadia, allowing console users to stream its library of games.

As noted in a video by Thurrott’s Brad Sams, the new Xbox browser could allow console players to stream games to their console via Microsoft’s own xCloud in the future, once Microsoft publicly adds web browser support.

The new Xbox Edge browser should also improve compatibility with services like Skype or Discord through the web, as well as browser-based games.
