On the Creators Update, Xbox One gets a slew of new features and changes to focus on performance, users, competition, streaming, and just getting things done a lot faster. One of these new improvement is the integration of Beam to let you stream your favorite games with the world.
The popularity of game streaming has been growing at a fast rate in the past few years, and while there are services like Twitch and YouTube Gaming, Microsoft’s Beam not only lets gamers broadcast or watch their favorite streams, but the service also gives them the ability to interact and play along together.
