Microsoft Edge browser now offering Clarity Boost feature for Xbox Cloud Gaming

Clarity Boost, a feature specific to Xbox Cloud Gaming on the Microsoft Edge browser that “uses a series of client-side scaling adjustments to improve the visual clarity of the video stream,” has arrived, according to a new blog post from Microsoft. Clarity Boost improves image sharpness and overall degree of detail, as shown in the sample image below, which Microsoft shared in the blog post.

Clarity Boost is now only available through the (free) Microsoft Edge Canary browser, which is a version of Edge used by Microsoft to test new features, improvements, and modifications. However, Microsoft has promised that Clarity Boost will be accessible to all Microsoft Edge users by 2022, so if you don’t like Microsoft Edge Canary, you won’t have to wait long to try it out.

Microsoft claims you’ll need to perform the following to attempt Clarity Boost:

  • To make sure you’re using Microsoft Edge Canary, go to edge:/settings/help and make sure you’re running version 96.0.1033.0 or above.
  • Go to, login, and start a game to enable Clarity Boost.
  • Activate the More Actions (…) option.
  • Choose Enable Clarity Boost from the drop-down menu.

To use Xbox Cloud Gaming, you must have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate memberships are generally $15 per month, while Microsoft occasionally offers subscriptions for as little as $1.
