September 2021 Xbox Update

New ways to access console games with the Xbox app

Microsoft have announced that they are opening up new ways for everyone to remotely access their games with updates to the Xbox app. This includes support for:

Play Xbox Game Pass games from the cloud. Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) is now available through the Xbox app on Windows PCs for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 22 countries. Cloud gaming lets you quickly jump into games on your Windows 10 PC, iOS, and Android devices – no downloads required.

Play games directly from your home console on your PC with Xbox remote play: If you own Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One, you can access your console gaming experiences on Windows 10 PCs via Xbox remote play with the Xbox app. Remote play lets you play games from your Xbox Series X|S or any generation of Xbox One on your Windows PC over the internet. It’s essentially a way to mirror your full console experience on another screen – Browse and play your full gaming catalog, change settings, interact with friends, and more.

If you're not an Xbox Game Pass member yet, sign up and get your first month for just $1.

Save your Play Later list

With Play Later discovery, you can curate your own list of titles from over 100 high-quality games in the Xbox Game Pass library. See a game that looks interesting? Just save it to your list and play it later. If there’s nothing on your list yet, we’ll show you how to use it and provide some personalized recommendations for games to add your list.

Updates to Microsoft Edge on your Xbox

Starting today, the latest version of Microsoft Edge will be available on all Xbox consoles. This update will bring you the best of the web, with improved web standards and a fast, secure, and modern browsing experience right from your console. You’ll also enjoy a more streamlined gaming experience across your signed-in devices. If a game opens a new window on Microsoft Edge for hints or guides, send that tab to another signed-in device so you can continue gaming on your console seamlessly. This update also comes with mouse and sync support, so you can manage your profile settings easily within Microsoft Edge on your Xbox console.

Help shape the future of Xbox

If you’d like to help create the future of Xbox and get access to early features such as Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta), download the Xbox Insider Hub on your Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or Windows 10 PC today.
