Steam PC games available to Xbox owners (video)

NVIDIA has opened access to streamingthe GeForce NOW service on Microsoft Edge, which will allow Xbox users to run Steam PC gaming applications on Xbox consoles. Support for the Microsoft Edge browser, which is part of the Xbox ecosystem, gives users access to over 1,000 PC games on GeForce NOW.

Thus, the long-standing desire of usersXbox to get access to PC games is slowly becoming a reality. Previously, popular PC games were available to Xbox owners using Parsec, which was essentially a remote desktop client that allowed PC data to be transferred to the Xbox browser. Using GeForce NOW is the best solution as it doesn't require a computer to run games. The Xbox user will now be able to connect to the service directly through the browser and launch game applications.

Basic GeForce Now service is free andwill allow users to play for an hour at 1080p in such popular computer games as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2 and League of Legends.

Browser in Microsoft Edge on Xbox alsoSupports mouse and keyboard input, which empowers users to launch individual games that do not support a gamepad. However, this is not ideal for Xbox gamers, as the virtual keyboard only appears after keystrokes, which increases latency and decreases the quality of gameplay in multiplayer applications.
