You can now play Counter Strike, LOL and other PC games from your Xbox through GeForce Now

Starting today, the streaming game service GeForce Now already works in the browser Microsoft Edge. And since the browser on Xbox consoles was recently updated to a much more optimized version of Edge, that means now you can play your Steam games from Xbox consoles through the cloud.

GeForce Now is a cloud gaming service similar to Stadia, PS Now or Xbox Cloud Gaming, but with the particularity that you do not buy the games or have a catalog, but you use the ones you already have on platforms such as Steam,, Ubisoft Plus, EA Play or Epic Games Store.

Exclusive PC games like DOTA 2, League of Legends or Counter Strike: Global Offensive they can be played on your Xbox, even using a keyboard and mouse, although keep in mind that when streaming through GeForce Now, you may notice latency issues, as tested in The Verge.

GeForce Now includes a free subscription, which allows you to play 1080p in one-hour sessions. Also, on Steam there is a huge amount of free to play games that are exclusive to PC.

Additionally, NVIDIA recently updated the service allowing run games at 1440p and 120fps by streaming, a feat powered by its new supercomputer.

GeForce Now is not designed to be used on Xbox, but if many users try it this way, maybe NVIDIA decides to officially launch GeForce Now support from Xbox, although that would compete with Xbox Game Pass itself and its streaming services.

By the end of this year, we will be able to play by the cloud, with Xbox Cloud Gaming, from the Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles themselves, something that until now was reserved for PCs and Android and iOS mobiles.
