Xbox App on PC gets HowLongtoBeat tracker, more in new update

Xbox App

The Xbox App on PC has gotten a fantastic new feature for people looking to play games through the Xbox Game Pass.

Microsoft announced they partnered with the website HowLongToBeat to show players different levels of game length.

Players can now see the community driven aggregates for Main Story, Main Story and Additional Quests, Completionist, and a overall aggregate for all kinds of playthroughs. You can even click on ‘view details’ to submit your own times, manage your library of games, and help other players take on their backlogs together.

For more information on this new partnership, you can check out the website for more info.

On top of the partnership with HowLongtoBeat, Microsoft also says that the update will improve launch times and overall app performance by up to 15%. They also claim that crash-free sessions have improved to 99.9% with their recent updates. Search results on the app have also improved by up to 20%.

Microsoft and Xbox continue to pave the way with their consumer-friendly services on PC and their push to create an easy-to-use application that serves to complement platforms like Steam and Epic Games Store while not locking content behind their platform outright.

Over the years the Xbox App, which had launched in a rough state, has improved dramatically as more users are becoming acquainted with the amazing Xbox Game Pass program.
