Posted April 04, 2017

The team has worked hard and we hope you enjoy the updates to your Xbox One experience!

Windows 10 Creators Update to roll out on April 11. "With Beam, we're inviting Creators on Windows 10 PC and Xbox One to stream gameplay and interact with the community in near real-time using Beam's ultra low-latency - no extra hardware or software required", Microsoft added.

Interested users may download that new version of the Update Assistant on this Microsoft Support page. To that end, Microsoft has also tweaked the way the Guide button works, giving players an overlay menu to quickly access different functions of their console instead of forcing them to go back to the home screen. The company is releasing a new update for the OneNote app to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring.

Microsoft acquired Beam's parent company in August 2016 when Beam was still testing its service. Cortana will also play a major role with being able to search for words or phrases or even to define specific words.

Microsoft purchased Beam to integrate its own streaming service into the Xbox One and Windows 10 and it is now ready for everyone.

Along with the recent update, Microsoft has added a slew of interesting features and enhanced some of the already existing ones.
