Xbox App for PC Now Tells You How Long it Takes to Beat a Game

Microsoft has released a new update for its Xbox app on Windows, which includes faster launch times and will now tell you how long it takes to beat a game.

As part of a partnership with IGN’s sister site, HowLongToBeat, the Xbox app for Windows computers includes some information on most of the games available on PC Game Pass, such as how long it takes to beat a game or get 100 percent completion.

HowLongToBeat is a community-driven based site, so you will be able to submit your own times, as well as check things like forums and community reviews.

The Xbox Wire post also notes that Microsoft has made some improvements to the Game Details pages, allowing PC users to now view things like trailers, screenshots, and game descriptions, all of which are available at the top of a game’s page.

Additionally, Microsoft also confirmed the latest update for the Xbox app for PC now launches 15 percent faster. “We’re committed to continuing to improve the performance and reliability of the app,” Xbox’s Partner Director of Product Management, Player Experiences, and Platform notes in the latest XboxWire post.
