Microsoft Starts New ‘Because You Liked…’ Game Recommendation Feature For Xbox Game Pass [Laurent Giret @ OnMSFT]
March 17, 2021
Microsoft has started testing a new Xbox feature that will help gamers find new Xbox Game Pass games to play based on their previous gaming activity. The feature was introduced in a recent preview update for Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha rings, and it could be released as soon as next month with the next system update for Xbox consoles.
After installing the update, Xbox Insiders will notice a new “Because you played” category in the Xbox Game Pass app alongside other categories highlighting new games to discover in the catalog. With Xbox Game Pass getting new games all the time, it can be quite difficult for subscribers to find new games to play, and it’s nice to see Microsoft trying to do more on that front.
