Xbox app on PC


Last month, we released a major update to game installation and management that allows you to choose a specific folder for game installation, better game management options, and the ability to mod more games. We continue to make updates based on your feedback. The next wave of updates is available for all Xbox Insiders to test and provide feedback, and will be available to everyone in late March.

  • App navigation updates: This is the first of an upcoming wave of changes to improve the way you move around the app and access your games. For this initial release, all of your navigation is in the sidebar, and we’ve made Xbox Cloud Gaming easier to find.
  • Performance Tuning Indicators– There is a new performance tuning indicator to check and see if a game will run on your PC before installing it

Later this month, you will be able to install and play Rainbow Six: Siege and Rainbow Six: Extraction directly from the Xbox app.

To get early access to these new features and more, join the Xbox Insider Program.
