Xbox Cloud Gaming ‘performance improvements’ to ChromeOS
In a recent Reddit post, CohenJordan – a verified Xbox employee – unveiled that Xbox recently rolled out a series of cloud updates in order to improve performance on both ChromeOS and Linux devices. These fixes are set to improve in-browser play for users gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Users should see higher gameplay resolution as well as a “smoother streaming experience.”
