Microsoft has unveiled its latest update for the Xbox App for PC, and it brings a pretty major feature in the form of a 'Performance Indicator'. This addition basically predicts how well a game will run on your PC, based on its performance on similar setups.
"Now the app compares the game’s performance on PCs with similar specs to yours, to show a prediction of how well we expect the game to run. If your PC isn’t up to the task of running a graphically demanding game, you’ll be able to view the game’s system requirements to get more details on what you need to run the game."
Elsewhere in the update, Xbox has made it a little easier to find new games to install, by adding more 'Game Collections'. These collections group together recommended games based on search terms and genres, with new tags such as "games to play together", "side scrollers", and "point and click". Basically, it'll be easier to decide on a new Game Pass title when there's too much choice (which there always is)!
"You can find all the games you care about in “Search” with improved accuracy, and it now includes games from EA Play and Ubisoft Connect in search results. “Home” is where we’ve added more collections for you to explore. [...] Whatever mood you’re in, you’ll be sure to find a game to play!"
