Started sending out invitations to test Windows 10 on Xbox One
As promised, Microsoft has started the preparatory phase of deploying a new dashboard for the Xbox One based on Windows 10. Initially, a preliminary version of a new interface for the console will be available to most active members of the Xbox Preview program, but gradually in the process of testing involves a larger number of users.
Invitations to participate in testing began tonight via Xbox Live. If you are one of those lucky ones who already received an invitation, here is what you will receive after approval of your application and install the update:
- the ability to play Xbox 360 games using all the benefits of Xbox One features;
- new home screen;
- the new sidebar;
- new Community;
- new hub OneGuide;
- new Store;
- Cortana (in the US and UK).
With this update, Microsoft introduced a system very similar to the one that already exists in the program Windows Insider. That is, users may choose to install the new dashboard and then receive frequent updates, or you can stay in the current branch and only download a more stable version that passed the rigorous testing process.
