Google Stadia, a cloud gaming service, is now available on the Xbox Series X game console with the latest Edge Chromium update. The development, which is currently in the testing phase, is expected to be made available to a wide audience soon.
The development is a big step for Google Stadia
Users with access to the Alpha Skip Ahead version of Xbox had the opportunity to upgrade to chromium version of Microsoft Edge on their console. This allowed users to run Google Stadia on Xbox X Series X. A video posted on Twitter by Tom Warren showed Google Stadia working on an Xbox Series X.
In the video, Warren uploads Destiny 2 via Stadia to his console. While everything seemed fine in the video, no content for any game moments was shared. Warren also tweeted that “Google Stadia working on Xbox Series X thanks to the new Microsoft Edge Chromium browser.”
Microsoft replaced the Edge browser with a new version of Chromium last year. It has also begun to integrate this new and modified version into Xbox consoles. The privilege, which has so far been available to people in the Xbox Insider program, is expected to be available to a wider audience when the test is completed.
In addition, both Google Stadia and Xbox Series X share a vastly similar library pool. Also, if you already have a game on Stadia and don’t want to buy it again, Xbox will give you this convenience. The effective operation of Google’s cloud gaming service on Xbox will be a major development for Stadia. It will also create significant value for future projects.
