Microsoft Edge is a browser whose maintenance is a priority. The software giant brings patches, improvements, and novelties.
One of the most recent “tested” ideas relates to video games. Redmond is working on a module that adds a gamepad to the browser. It allows access to some pre-loaded games with just one click.
A new button is added to the main interface toolbar. Its goal is to provide one-click access to some games like Solitaire, Microsoft Jewel, Chess, and others. All titles are hosted on MSN Games. These are online games. Suddenly, this gamepad has become a solution for compiling simple shortcuts to play games through the browser.
Microsoft Edge and Gamepad
At the moment, this novelty is still in its infancy. It is offered for testing on a limited number of registered users of Microsoft Edge’s Canary Channel. This means that not everyone can try it. According to a post on reddit This gamepad is disabled by default. It is necessary to activate it through the Settings, Appearance section.
We find different tabs to easily choose the type of game you want.
Microsoft has not released any official statements or announcements at this time. Logically, this novelty should be available to more users in the coming weeks. Note that given that the titles shown are all online games, all browser versions will usually be served. The public release will obviously be related to Windows, Linux, or even macOS versions.
