Microsoft Edge's new Chromium overhaul has expanded its Xbox gaming console, with testers on its functionality. It is said that Xbox One and S/X series are receiving a Chromium-based Edge Build. The tech giant has stated that it is testing the browser with its innovative Alpha Skip-Ahead group, and the implementation of it will be done soon. The new series has no keyboard and mouse support; it reportedly works well with the Xbox controller.

The new test build of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser is exclusively available for Xbox testers in the Alpha Skip-Ahead group. The recent reports said that the new browser currently works best with the Xbox controller, while complete mouse and keyboard support is expected to come sometime. It is said to be having the same sync engine as the desktop build, offering the same gaming expansions and vertical tabs.

Xbox's Alpha Skip-Ahead group, one of Microsoft's beta testing groups, has already launched the Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows and macOS. It has also recently partnered with Google to add features that are innovative, robust, and exceptional. Microsoft is also ending support for the Edge browser's legacy version for Windows PCs on March 9.
