Xbox has done it again, and this time, the Windows PC app has received a few updates. The update comes along with a few more features that will enhance users’ gaming experience.

This comes months after the Redmond giant made a few updates to improve the resolution by introducing the 4k dashboard.

The new update has now introduced easy access to custom install folders through the app, making it easier for you to mod your games.

Personalized experience

With this update, Xbox is more focused on giving users a more personalized experience. The update, which is currently only available to Xbox Insiders, includes features such as Cloud Gaming, custom install locations, and faster download times, among others.

You can now choose the drive in which a game installs and select the default folder within the drive where the file will be located.

This gives the users more control of the game files and mod their games with a little more ease since they can now access local files via the app.

 The Xbox app will also have a marker on the game’s page that will indicate whether the game is moddable or not. 

Your PC’s power is not an issue

With the Cloud Gaming feature now baked into the Xbox app on your PC, the power of your PC is not an issue because you can play any of the titles.

You and your friends will definitely enjoy this feature and discover a whole new way of playing, just make sure it is within the Cloud Gaming library.

So that you don’t have to go back and forth, the app has added a new tab that displays the games available on the console.

Other features that will definitely enhance your experience include faster downloads with reliable speeds. We all hate the lag, and this comes in handy.

The Xbox Game Pass for PC interface has also been made to display the games coming and leaving soon, just like the mobile app. 

Windows 11 users can also now switch off the Auto HDR feature within the Game bar if they don’t like it. Alternatively, you can use the slider to adjust its intensity.

So far, only the Xbox Insiders can access these features, but they are expected to roll out soon to everyone.
