Intel launches its first XBox Game Bar widget alongside latest Graphics Command Center update
As we wait twiddling our thumbs until the day Intel finally launches its full-fledged Xe graphics card, the chipmaker has been slowly developing the software package surrounding the eventual hardware. The Intel Graphics Command Center (IGCC), for example, was created to replace the aging Intel HD Graphics Control Panel software that's still shipping on a lot of Intel-based PCs today.
The latest beta update to IGCC includes a widget for the XBox Game Bar that's already pre-installed on most Windows 10 PCs. After installing the IGCC beta update here on Windows 1903 or later, the widget can be accessed when launching the XBox Game Bar (Windows key + G).
For now, the Intel widget is limited in features as shown by our screenshots below as many of its functions can already be accessed elsewhere on the PC. Gamers don't need yet another application to perform something that can already be done with existing programs. However, Intel says this is just a first step before launching a larger graphics toolkit later in the year.
