Microsoft Edge Chromium-based browser is now available for testing on Xbox consoles.

The test build of the browser will be available for Xbox testers in the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring.

The Alpha beta-testers who will install the new Chromium-based Edge browser will be able to find the browser right from their apps section of the console.

The browser will be available for testers using Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.

Having said that keyboard and mouse support from the test build is still missing, according to a report by The Verge.

The report also says that the controller works fine with the test build, however, the overall experience feels buggy.

The new Microsoft Edge browser on Xbox also comes with an end-of-support date for the legacy version of the desktop app.

The company is planning to shut down the legacy version by March 9, 2021. This date will mark the end of all the security updates for the browser.

Microsoft has recently improved the compatibility support with Chromium and it is also likely to make online gaming experiences better.

Services like Google Stadia and other browser-based games will also be supported with the browser.

In addition to that, browser-based services like Discord, Skype or other video conferencing services will likely be supported as well.
