Invites to test Windows 10 for Xbox One will roll out soon, Microsoft says

Microsoft will soon begin sending invites to Xbox Preview members to test the Windows 10 for Xbox One.

Microsoft is already gearing up to release Windows 10 for Xbox One in November, and as always Xbox Preview members will have the chance to download and install the software before everyone else. However, the software giant is announcing that the Xbox Preview Program will have a few changes for this specific release.

Because the next version of the software will be a major upgrade for the console, the company will be given the opportunity to decide whether they want to participate and help mold the next Xbox One experience.

At the beginning, Microsoft start inviting a small number of preview members known by sending good and frequent feedback. The participation will be invite only that members will be getting through Xbox Live. As the company feels more confident, it will continue enrolling larger groups of users over the course of time.

If you’re among those receiving the invitation from Microsoft, you’ll have the option to upgrade and try the new experience, or you can stay in the current preview level.

The next major upgrade for Xbox One will introduce a brand new dashboard experience similar to what you see today in the Xbox app for Windows 10, Cortana will be part of the experience as well, there will be an updated Store and OneGuide, and the new changes will focus on making the experience faster and more complete.

Microsoft is also planning to bring Xbox 360 backward compatibility with the new software. The company said that there will be 100 games available when the feature releases to everyone, and it will be adding more game title each month.
