Microsoft launches Xbox Live Creators Program

Changes To Xbox Insider Program Announced

Xbox One Insider Program Now Open To All Users With Flexible Levels Of Access

The Xbox One Insider program is now available to all, with flexible levels of access for those who want fewer system updates.

The most prestigious level of Insider access remains Alpha, which requires you to be picked by Microsoft from a pool of people already in the program for more than three months who have offered a lot of feedback. The feedback can be given through the insider app.

If users have multiple consoles then they will be able to choose separate levels of access for each of the console.

One important note for users who select enrollment in the Delta group to be aware of: a portion of Delta Insiders will receive preview builds earlier than others, based on a random lottery process. The rings will enable some flexibility in receiving updates as well.

Retail Xbox One consoles can be used to publish games but those games must also be Universal Windows Applications so they can run on Windows 10. As you gain access to deeper Insider rings, you'll still retain access to lower rings, too.

Obviously, more system updates means more bandwidth taken up downloading them. Microsoft is trying to simplify entry into the Insider Program through the use of a heirarchical ring program.

Along with games, Xbox Insiders can also get early access to unreleased Xbox console apps and updates, so keep checking the Xbox Insider Hub to see if new content opportunities are available to you!

Starting today, gamers can try out the first wave of self-published games in the newly added "Creators Collection" on Xbox One or under the "Games" category on the Windows 10 Store. If you are concerned about the number of updates or bandwidth issues, you can move to one of the lower levels. It's easy to get started!
