Microsoft has been running their Preview program for the Xbox for some time now, allowing members to get early access to new Xbox features and provide your feedback and ideas about them,
Today Microsoft announced some changes to the program.
One of the biggest changes is actually a name change, in which, Microsoft will be changing it from the Xbox Preview Program to the Xbox Insider Program to reflect “how we are expanding to offer opt-in opportunities to provide feedback on Game and App Previews alongside System Update previews.”
But that’s not all, they have also rebuilt the Preview dashboard with a similar name change to the Xbox Insider Hub, the ability to personalize it with more relevant announcements, quests, and content, a new UI, and the addition of support for multiple users and an Xbox Insider profile card.
Last on the list of changes is that they will be opening the Xbox Insider Program to all Xbox users soon.
Major Nelson revealed this news, detailing the roll out with the following:
We’re starting to roll these changes out today to a small number of preview members who have provided the most feedback since the inception of the Xbox Preview Program. If you have your Xbox One console in Instant-on mode and you have the Xbox Preview Dashboard app installed, then you don’t have to do anything – the app will update automatically overnight. If you want to see the changes sooner, you can check for updates by going to My games and apps, and then looking at the updates section. Over the next few weeks, all existing Xbox Preview members will get access to the new Xbox Insider Hub.
