Microsoft teases gaming improvements for Windows 10

In related news, Microsoft has announced that it is working on a new desktop experience for the Xbox app on Windows 10.

There have been no details revealed as to what the experience would be but we expect Microsoft to provide better gaming experience on Windows 10. The Redmond Giant has recently updated the Game Bar on Windows 10 with a full overlay functionality.

A number of widgets have also been added to access the Xbox features like LFG, messages, and more making the Xbox app redundant. Microsoft is planning to expand app functionality by letting the PC users control the elements remotely as well.

Microsoft’s Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hyrb has announced on his official Twitter account that users with Windows 10 May 2019 Update will be able to access the gaming experience.

There has been no specific date announced as to when the company plans to push the latest gaming related update on Windows 10 but it looks like the Redmond Giant is keen on improving the PC gaming experience.

The tech giant had last week announced that they are working on bringing a new version of its on-demand Xbox Game Pass subscription service to Windows 10 users.
