Xbox consoles get a browser capable of Stadia streaming

Testing of the Chromium-based Edge browser is underway.

Xbox consoles now have an Edge browser capable of Google Stadia streaming, with testing underway with Alpha Skip-Ahead ring insiders.

Available on both Xbox One and Xbox Series platforms, the Chromium-based Edge browser is more inline with modern browser standards and could support a number of feature-rich offerings.

The Edge app is (unsurprisingly) buggy, and doesn’t support keyboard and mouse input as yet. When all the bugs are ironed out, the browser could support Stadia streaming, browser-based games, browser-based Discord and Skype interfaces and more. The browser also provides a sync with desktop versions of Edge (if you use Edge on your desktop, that is), meaning you’ll be able to access extensions, Collections, vertical tabs and other features.

We’ll let you know when the new Edge browser will be available to all Xbox users.
