Xbox Announces New 'Clarity Boost' Feature For Cloud Gaming

It was reported earlier today that Xbox had some "intriguing" news to share about Cloud Gaming this week, and it looks like it's been revealed in the form of a new Clarity Boost feature on the Microsoft Edge browser.

This feature allows you to improve the visual quality of the stream when playing through a browser, and will be available to all Microsoft Edge users by next year. You can also try it today with the following instructions:


  • To confirm you are in Microsoft Edge Canary, navigate to edge://settings/help to make sure you are on version 96.0.1033.0 or later.
  • Open the more actions (…) menu
  • Select Enable Clarity Boost option.

Here's what Microsoft has to say about Clarity Boost and how it works:

"Today, we are excited to invite you to experience Clarity Boost, one of the latest cloud gaming optimizations available on Microsoft Edge Canary. This feature uses a set of client-side scaling improvements to improve the visual quality of the video stream."
