Microsoft acquired the live streaming service ‘Beam’ late last year and I wondered what they were going to do with it. Now the company is going to introduce a Beam app to testers of the Xbox Insider Program. This program also applies to Windows 10 users who signed up.
According to the Xbox Wire post, there will be more information about the interactive capabilities at the GDC running from February 27th to March 3rd. I’m still not sure if Microsoft wants to directly compete against Twitch, but it’s nice to see they’re making strides.
