Anyone can now test Xbox One system updates earlier

Anyone can now test Xbox One system updates earlier

Previously, the program was limited to a selected group of players, but Microsoft has announced anyone will be able to opt in to the lowest-tier of the Insider Program.

If you're someone that likes to live on the edge, getting a sneak preview at the latest games through closed alphas and betas, jumping into system software updates before they reach general release, then you'll be happy to hear that the Xbox Insider program can now be joined by anyone and everyone with an Xbox One.

Wall Street lower on US-North Korea tensions
Retailers slid after department stores Macy's and Kohl's both said same-store sales continued to decline in the second quarter. ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude gained 1 cent to $49.57 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Microsoft has noted that there are four levels of access in the Xbox One Insider program and these levels unlock depending on how long the user has been part of the Xbox One Insider program and how often he/she provides feedback.

If users have multiple consoles then they will be able to choose separate levels of access for each of the console. The feedback can be given through the insider app. This means that while all users in the Delta ring will receive new console updates prior to their official release, some Delta Insiders will receive updates before others. Instead, devs from all walks of life, whether they're simply students, hobbyists, or smaller studios seeking full independence, they will all be able to publish their titles as easily as developers can publish apps to Windows 10. Recently we partnered with our friends at Rare and already thousands of gamers are sailing the Sea of Thieves across both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Nine games are available right now in a section called "Creators collection" in the Xbox Store.

The new Xbox Line Creators Program gives budding developers an avenue to create and publish their own games to Xbox One and Windows 10, with a streamlined certification process and "no concept approval required".

If you are interested in joining the Xbox Insider Program, search the Xbox One Store for "Xbox Insider Hub" and download the app to get started today.
