    The Xbox Insider Program

    So, some of you may know that Microsoft has the Windows (10) Insider Program. It's a program where ppl can test and report on bugs/glitches and the like before a new version of Windows 10 hits the general public.

    It's almost the same as the Xbox Preview Program. Except that the Xbox one is for xbox only and it's called 'preview program'. Well Microsoft narrowed the gap.

    Starting from yesterday (monday the 7th of november 2016) Microsoft launched the Xbox Insider Program. It's the same as the preview program. They just changed the name and created a new hub in which you can report of bugs and give feedback.

    Cool thing tho... Everyone is eligable again. So no more turning ppl down who want in on the program or ppl asking for referral. Now everyone can join.

    Rollout of the Insider Program has started and is being rolled out to frequent feedback suppliers first and the rest of the Program peeps will come in the upcoming weeks.

    So what do you think of this?

    I don't really mind being a part of the preview program or not but I think this will benefit Microsoft tremendously because of the more feedback they will have. It will be their entire audience and not just a select group. Good move MS.

    @Xbox 4 Life , true, but now it's also alot more nagging, whining and betching about features they want on the X1 or why high requested things aren't implemented yet. Not to mention the usual 'hi, my xbox isn't working properly, what can I do?' And you know sum ppl R stupid enough to actually use Preview/Insider Program as a helpdesk xD

    Yes but you would think they just filter through and discard all the junk and review the constructive criticism. A lot more time on their end but the benefit will pay off.

    If you can apply yourself....no more 1 posters on here begging for invites!!😆 or people selling invites on eBay!

    I think it's a good thing for Xbox to open it out to all & get more feedback thus making future updates more stable for all. I'll still always choose to stay with the safety net that is public dashboard but appreciate the preview program for what it does!! Truly benefits all X1 owners!!😉

    The Xbox Insider Program

    All may not be as it seems with the new Insider program! It says here that new members won't be asked to test new system software updates.Name:  ImageUploadedByXbox One Forums1478584856.363865.jpg

    Does that mean new members will have to earn their stripes before they can test system updates?

    For now they can't but I think they plan to open it up later. Whether you have to earn it or not is still known.

    Windows Insider, Xbox insider. It will soon become academic, consoles & PC's will soon both be running the exact same OS and UWP so it makes sense to combine them. The console will become just another 'windows' device, that's what UWP is all about. Makes sense really.

    So the new update is rolling out starting yesterday/today depending on your timezone.

    It's in conjunction with the Creator's Update which went live for Insiders on Windows 10 a few days/weeks ago.

    The Xbox variant is focused on accessability and intuitivity. Better access by allowing things to be simpler and more on the forefront.

    I got the update and downloading it as we speak. Other insiders will get it in the following weeks. I'll tell you my impression of it after some spelunking.

    Here's an article and vid by Larry Hyrb explaining the update: http://www.in.techradar.com/news/mis...w/56745013.cms
