The New Internet Browser On Xbox Is Adding Keyboard & Mouse Support

The Microsoft Edge internet browser for Xbox has infamously never supported mouse and keyboard throughout the entire Xbox One generation, but it looks like that's all about to change with the new version.

As highlighted by The Verge's Tom Warren on Twitter, Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring are now able to use mouse and keyboard near-flawlessly with the new Microsoft Edge app:

It's fantastic news, as this opens up the possibilities for Microsoft Edge on Xbox considerably. The web version of Microsoft Office, for example, now works via the app, and even Google Stadia games can utilise mouse & keyboard.

There's no official date for when we can expect the new version of Microsoft Edge to roll out publicly yet, but it looks like the Xbox team is making some really good progress with it. Hopefully it's just a few weeks (rather than months) away!
