New Xbox app feature shows your PC game performance


Check to see whether games are compatible with your PC before purchasing them.

Using the Xbox PC software, you can check out which games operate smoothly on your computer before you buy them. Tila Nguyen, Senior Product Manager Lead at Xbox Experiences, describes the workings of Game Performance Fit Indicator in an Xbox Wire(opens in new tab) post.

A label will appear when you click on a game’s details to tell you if it plays well on PCs with similar specs to your own. It’s a good idea to check out a game’s system requirements if you don’t know if your PC can handle it.


It’s possible that some games, particularly those that were just added to the Xbox PC app, will not have a performance check, according to Nguyen. According to Nguyen, “You may not see a performance check for every game until we have enough information to share a recommendation.”

On the other hand, determining whether a game will run on your computer has never been a mystery. As far as I’m aware, there has never been an occasion where a game developer didn’t list its recommended system requirements. That being said, you’ll need to put in some extra effort to find it. This new function will make things easier for everyone involved..

In addition, Microsoft is enhancing the Xbox app’s navigation so that more games can be found. You may now hop immediately into your next game because to the new queue, which Nguyen claims appears in the bottom left of the app and notifies you when your game has completed the installation process.


Microsoft has included a new feature to Windows 11 called the Game Performance Fit Indicator. More and more games are coming to Xbox Game Pass on PC, so it’s encouraging to see the firm improving the user experience even further.

It’s possible that you won’t be able to use the feature straight away due to the gradual deployment. However, you shouldn’t have to wait long to give it a shot.
