If you are using a Windows PC running on an ARM processor and are interested in running the Microsoft Xbox app on it, here is some good news for you. Microsoft has rolled out a new ARM64 version of its Xbox app for Windows today. The new Xbox app will run natively on the ARM-powered PCs, like the Microsoft Surface Pro X. The company has confirmed the same via a blog post recently.
Xbox App Will Now Run Natively On ARM-Powered Windows PCs
Microsoft confirmed that the new Xbox app will run natively on the ARM-powered devices, which allows for a smoother experience. Readers must be made aware that while there is a native Xbox app available for the Windows devices, games are a totally different matter, as there are not too many Windows games that are natively compiled for ARM. Therefore, we might have to wait for more updates in this regard.
Nonetheless, it is a welcome move, and one can expect that more games will be added to the roster, which will natively support the hardware. As for now, you will either need to rely upon the built-in emulation or stream games from some other platform.
