You can play your Steam games on Xbox, a bit

The Xbox library has grown, especially when your Steam library is large.

That’s because Xbox consoles can now technically play Steam games, although you shouldn’t be too excited-this can best be described as a fun thing to check in action, rather than a legal and feasible way to play Steam games.

According to reports Computer world, Marginal Tom Warren It was discovered that because Microsoft’s Edge browser runs on Xbox game consoles, Nvidia’s GeForce Now streaming service allows you to log in to the PC store database (such as Steam) to play games you already own, which can technically run on these consoles. Basically, what happened is that you can use the Edge browser to access the GeForce Now streaming service online. You can then stream your Steam games via GeForce Now via the Edge browser on Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One.

Reading this sentence alone should show you how effective or not very good streaming Steam games this way is. The game must be streamed through multiple interfaces, and as you might expect, there is a lot of latency and delay involved. You can see Warren playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive below, and as he pointed out, this is not an ideal experience.

However, turn-based RPGs and other types of games that do not require fast action based on reflections may be worth checking out with this strange streaming method.

If you want to try it yourself, use the Edge browser on the Xbox console to go to Play.GeForceNow.com. There, log in and select the game you want to try. You can use this method to play games with an Xbox controller or keyboard and mouse. It is worth noting that Warren tried this on his Xbox One X-maybe Xbox Series X can handle this workaround better.

As pointed out Computer world, This is not the method that Xbox or Nvidia emphasizes or even recommends. This is just a solution found, and currently, we don’t expect Xbox or Nvidia to use this as a viable way to play games. Maybe the two will collaborate to create an application to do this on the Xbox console. Currently, the Edge browser is your entrance to play Steam games on Xbox.
