In its most recent Canary channel update for the Edge browser, Microsoft is putting a new feature for PC gamers named “Edge for Gamers” through its internal testing programme. The company is also quietly expanding this feature. This new feature is located in the appearance option in Edge Settings. Also, the description of the feature includes
- Improve your appearance in and out of the game with the game home page
- Sidebar apps for gamers
- PC game efficiency mode
- Dark mode
- Custom game theme
- More experience
What does Edge for Gamers offer
The Edge dark mode and the Twitch and Discord Windows apps are both automatically loaded in the sidebar when this switch is set on. This is a fantastic option for gamers who want to rapidly stream their PC gameplay or interact with other players without having to load other apps. When the feature is turned on, Edge users are also redirected to the add-ons store’s themes section. Of course, this will make it easier to buy and download game-related themes. Another toggle with the title “Improve your PC gaming experience with Productivity Mode” also appears. When this mode is used, Edge’s CPU usage will be reduced, resulting in improved CPU performance for games.
