If you go through the PCs’ Xbox app when it comes to playing something, something interesting might be to be able to estimate how long the game will be completed.

Microsoft has partnered with HowLongtoBeat for the forecast that they know how long it will normally take a player to complete each game. The estimation is at the bottom of the screen so that one can predict how long the main game will take to complete, and what content could be added. It is possible to estimate the duration of the game, which is what HowLongtoBeat uses.

This feature is a part of the Xbox App for Windows, not the Xbox console.

Microsoft said that it also updated the speed and reliability of the Xbox app itself.

We were committed to improving the quality and reliability of the app, said a blog post of Jason Beaumont, director of product management, player experience and platform partner. The latest update can now be used to start up to 15 percent faster. We also repaired the latest fixes to a better ability to respond to key information in the app. We had seen crash-free sessions improve to 99.9%, and player reports of games that weren’t successful in downloading or installing were reduced to nearly half. We had an emphasis on increased relevance for search results, and it is now up to 20 percent faster than getting results back.
