The team from Xbox responsible for the Insider Program has announced that they’ve partnered with Xbox Wire to start a brand-new Xbox Insider blog. This means that those wanting to stay up to date on the latest Insider news can view it all in one convenient place.
Their inaugural post did not announce any new features, though they did tease that they have exciting content planned for the future. Instead, Xbox Program Manager Savannah took the time to celebrate how much the program has grown. Some quick highlights from the post:
- We’ve defined how Insiders are selected for our Xbox One Preview Update rings. This means it’s clearer than ever how to gain access to the newest system updates, how many updates you can expect per month and what you need to do to gain access to the next ring.
- Switch between any of the Xbox One Preview Update rings you’ve unlocked faster than ever before. Whether you’re moving from Alpha to Omega or vice versa, you can now easily enroll in any of the System Update rings available to you in the Xbox Insider Hub. This gives you more control over the number of updates you’re receiving and how quickly you’re gaining access to brand new Xbox features. Not only is this process easier and more flexible than ever before, but since August, we’ve introduced an update that makes changes to your enrollment status nearly instantaneous.
- Provide feedback on 1st and 3rd party games as an Xbox Insider. We’ve partnered with a variety of game studios to bring you even more exclusive content. With our playtests, Xbox Insiders are now able to test out unreleased games and the latest game updates on Xbox One consoles and PC.
Be sure to check out the Xbox Insider Hub app, which is now available on PC.
