Shortly after the leak, Zac Bowden from Windows Central turned to Twitter to reveal that the upcoming app will consume pretty significant amount of resources. He said, “The new Xbox app is a heavy boi. And it wants to set itself to auto-start with your PC. PLEASE.”
Given that the app is just beta at the moment, it’s more than likely that the required resources will go down as we move forward. With these upcoming changes, Microsoft is planning on pushing its Xbox Game Pass to gamers. Moreover, the company is likely to say goodbye to older version of Xbox app due to their design.
At the moment however, we haven’t heard anything from Microsoft. With E3 just around the corner, don’t expect to hear anything from the company as it is set to announce a number of new products during its press conference.
