Xbox One Update Available Soon With Important Changes

Xbox Insider Program changes

These follow changes that expanded the Xbox Insider program, but still kept it exclusive to a certain degree. The Alpha and Beta rings are staying mostly the same, while Rings 3 and 4 have been renamed Delta and Omega, respectively.

Microsoft has announced that it will be simplifying the user testing tiers in its Xbox Insider program. With these changes, everyone who owns an Xbox One will be able to join the Omega way and work their way up the ranks from there.

What do you think of Xbox Live Creators Program? Additionally, the Omega group will usually get early access to an upcoming monthly update before the general availability release date. And for the Beta group, you must have served in the program for at least three months and have reached Level 4.

The update will introduce many changes to the interface in order to make it faster, easier to manage, and offer a more customizable experience. As you gain access to deeper Insider rings, you'll still retain access to lower rings, too. You can plug your cable TV in the console and even control your channels. Nothing that I can talk about now, but something that fundamentally changes the concept ... we are working towards a bigger, more meaningful change about somebody's gaming accomplishments in history, as a gamer on Xbox. For $600 you can buy both consoles and two games, and for $500 you can buy an Xbox One X and no games and if you want to buy two games at least another 100 bucks so the value proposition is ONE CONSOLE TWO GAMES or TWO CONSOLE TWO GAMES. 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.

While Creators Program titles can utilize social features, players' Gamertags, leaderboard scoring and more, they won't be eligible for achievements or use of online multiplayer. The takeaway here is that the Xbox Insider program is now more inclusive overall, and still a little confusing. Head down to the comments section and let us know!
