Microsoft is now accepting participants for the Xbox LIVE preview program, giving you a chance to sign up and check out the new dashboard update early and give the hardware giant some feedback.
The preview will start in a few weeks time and if successful you’ll get an email from Microsoft telling you that you’ve been accepted.
Here’s a guide as to what to expect from Microsoft.
Xbox LIVE Update Program – Fall 2011
We appreciate your interest and support in helping us to test out the latest updates. This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community.
When do I Register My Console(s):
This year we have a new model for console registration so you were not asked to manually provide it during initial registration (as was the case in previous programs). We will provide details on the new process via this portal as soon as we are ready to start having consoles registered
What to Expect:
As part of this program, an update will be pushed out to your registered console(s) that will include select dashboard features including:
- New Metro design with integrated Kinect voice and gesture controls
- Facebook Sharing
- Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile
Other features and entertainment partner apps may also come into view during the program period and will be messaged via this portal.
