Xbox Game Pass: Widget for Windows 11 is on trial

Microsoft’s first new widget for Windows 11 should make it easier to find upcoming games on PC Game Pass. The widget is currently only available to testers and is supposed to provide the widget in the service’s game library, allowing you to check out the latest additions and games that are coming soon.

Microsoft currently has a fairly limited selection of widgets in Windows 11, but the Game Pass widget indicates that Microsoft is trying other apps (that aren’t as boring as weather, calendar, and news). Windows 11 is supposed to eventually support third-party widgets, but the addition of Game Pass could be a good way to shake up the widget board for now and could even help push the subscription service forward.

In addition to being able to see which games are coming and going, the new Game Pass widget shows games from specific categories and provides a portal to the Xbox app. Microsoft says it’s working on adding more features to the widget, including personalized recommendations and a way to sign in to your Xbox account and launch a recently played game.

If you’re testing Windows 11, you can add the Game Pass widget by opening the widget table on your PC and clicking the plus sign next to your user profile. From there, click the plus sign next to Game Pass and the widget should appear on your board.
