New Xbox app for PC

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/xb...3Aoverviewtab#

Will be revealed today at E3, also confirms game pass coming to PC

Features

• Explore what’s new and browse the library of Xbox Game Pass games on PC. You can browse by genre, see recommended and featured games, search for a game, and subscribe to Game Pass.

• Game detail pages display gameplay trailers, screenshots, system requirements, ratings and reviews; you’ll also see add-on content and suggestions of similar games that other players also like.

• Manage your installed games with the sidebar. Most recent games are at the top, or you can reorder them as you see fit. You can view download progress and launch an installed game with one click.

• Chat with your friends using voice or text across PC, Xbox One, and mobile, either 1:1 with another friend, or in a group.

• The new Xbox app and Xbox Game Bar work together seamlessly, so players can keep up the conversation from the social tab as they play.

With game pass likely going live for PC later it's worth being aware of this bargain.

Basically if you can get hold of cheap Xbox Live Gold subscription you can convert it to Xbox Game Pass ultimate for a euro.

So you could buy a year's XBL off cdkeys for 45 euro or so then pay a euro at the above link and you will have access to game pass on pc for a year.

You can stack up to 3 years before converting if you wanted to.

Installing a big windows update now. Last time I had the pc game pass it was almost impossible to find which games were available. I hope they have sorted that out.

You need version 1903 of Windows 10 for the app to install I think.

Same here, had to manually download it as i was showing no compliant devices. Doing that now.

There are a lot of good games on there, so well worth it.

Yeah I had to manually pulled down the update last night too. I think roughly a quarter of the games in there were on my steam wish list so I'm delighted and the catalog is only going to grow from here on.

Be sure to avail of the game pass ultimate offer I posted earlier, I'm paid up for two years now thanks to that so should be covered for Gears 5 and Halo infinite when they launch.

How long did you sign up for?

There's kind of a work around if you have only signed up for a month or so: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/com...91234995194821
