Nvidia now lets you play more than 1,000 Steam PC games on the Xbox via the Edge browser, using Nvidia’s GeForce Now service.
As of Monday, it’s possible to play PC games on your Xbox One, Series X, or Series S, thanks to Nvidia GeForce Now’s support for the Microsoft Edge browser, which appeared in a recent Geforce Now beta update.
GeForce Now includes access to more than 1,000 PC games, so if you’re an Xbox owner, you can now stream them directly to your console.
With free access to the GeForce Now service, gamers can stream popular PC games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, and League of Legends at 1080p, without the need to own and connect a PC capable of running these games.
They can connect to the service to play the games by navigating the Edge browser on their console. Since Edge for Xbox supports mouse and keyboard input, players can even stream and access those games that run without gamepad support.
Gaming sessions on the free membership tier are limited to one hour in length, so it might be worth checking higher membership tiers for those looking to play for a longer period of time. In addition to expanding GeForce Now’s access to Edge, Nvidia is also adding an RTX 3080 tier for gamers.

The move is part of a broader initiative to bring PC games to the Xbox console. Microsoft’s head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, recently tweeted that the company intends to integrate the Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) experience. Although he does not specify a timeline for this, access to GeForce Now on the Edge browser is a good step in this direction.
