According to Tech Radar‘s latest report, Microsoft announced that its Cloud Gaming feature offers exciting advanced capabilities. The company added that the users can soon use their old laptops to play popular Xbox titles via their web browsers. These include Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Safari.


Microsoft Windows laptops are not the only ones expected to access the playable Xbox Series X games. Some rumors and speculations that the new Cloud Gaming service could also allow Apple laptops, specifically the popular MacBooks.

If this is true, Apple users can expect a new level of gaming experience, especially since most of the company’s laptops are now using the high-end M1 chipset.

Using Microsoft Laptop To Play Xbox Titles

CNET reported that using the new Xbox Cloud Gaming service is pretty easy, especially since some Xbox Series X games already offer gamepad control overlays displayed on the screen.

To access this feature, all you need to do is open your preferred games via the Cloud Gaming service. Once you open it, the title will automatically provide you the digital controls, which correspond to specific keys on your laptop.
