Microsoft has yet to announce details about the new features of the Xbox app, but some users in the Xbox Insider program are now able to experience it first.
Xbox Insider users who select a game to play in the Xbox app will see the words “Should play great on this PC”. Games that include the above feature include Doom Eternal, Forza Horizon 5, or Yakuza Zero. Many other games currently have the words “performance check not available yet”.
To experience the new capabilities in Insider, users need to install the Xbox Insider Hub from the Windows Store, agree to participate in the beta program, and new features in beta will appear with the keyword “previews.” .
However, the phrase “Will play well on this computer” is also relatively vague. Good is a very broad concept. It is not yet known if this means that gamers will be able to experience the game at 60 frames per second at 1080p or other graphics settings.
The Windows Store games page and the Xbox app both state minimum system requirements. The Windows Store also uses its own testing system to see if the hardware meets the needs of the game. The weak points of the computer will be identified and noted for users to upgrade.
Anyway, the new feature will be very useful for inexperienced users who don’t know where to check hardware requirements. The Xbox app will help gamers see how good their PC gaming experience is.
