Microsoft is now testing a new component of the Xbox app, whereby performance labels are added to certain games that indicate how well a PC game will perform on the user's system. The feature has the potential to help players make more informed decisions before purchasing and downloading games. Xbox Insiders can preview the feature for themselves via the Xbox Insider app.

According to The Verge, Microsoft is implementing a new feature to the Xbox app on PC where gamers will be informed on how well a game will run on their system. The performance check is now being tested and hopefully all players will be able to access the nifty feature soon.

The performance check will be beneficial to players especially on lower-end systems who can decide whether to purchase or download a game based on the performance label. The label will also be more convenient and easier to understand for many gamers who are not familiar with the particulars of the PC hardware of their computer or the system requirements of PC games.

Microsoft is testing some titles with the new label while PC games without a label are designated with the message, ‘performance check not available yet’. However, official details of the feature have not yet been released. Therefore, it is not certain how Microsoft determines the performance label of a particular title based on the system requirements or the user’s PC.

Xbox Insiders can try out the performance label now via the Xbox Insider app.
