You can use cloud gaming services, chat on Discord, and access Steam from your Xbox.
With Microsoft’s software update in September, the Xbox will become a much more open platform. The console comes with the latest version of Microsoft Edge, which means you can play Stadia games, chat on your Discord server, and access Steam.

The latest version of Edge makes it easier to open web pages, search for news or tips, and unlock web versions of many gaming apps, including Google Starda (if you don’t like Microsoft’s own Xbox cloud gaming service). For some reason, it appears that Nvidia is still blocking access to GeForce Now gaming streams on Edge, but so far this seems to be more of an exception than the rule, according to the Verge.

Microsoft is also extending Xbox Cloud Gaming support to PCS in 22 countries through the Windows Xbox app for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users. With Xbox Cloud gaming now supported on PC, anyone with an Android phone, the latest Xbox or laptop/desktop can easily play over 100 different games without worrying about how powerful the device is. All you need is a fast Internet connection — Microsoft recommends speeds of at least 7Mbps, and a 5GHz wifi or 5G cellular connection, if you have one.

If you’d rather Play games you already own on another device, Microsoft’s Remote Play now lets you download games from an Xbox One or Xbox Series S/X to a nearby PC. This means that if someone in your house hogs the TV, you still have other game options. Best of all, Remote Play even works over the Internet, so you’re not limited to your local network.
For Xbox Game Pass users, Microsoft has added a new “Play later” list that makes it easier to bookmark any interesting games you see and come back to watch later. If you don’t have any games saved on your Play Later list, Microsoft will recommend some new games for you to try.
