Preview Program Emails are being sent out

 

We’re in the process of sending notification emails out to the first group of people for the Xbox LIVE Update Preview Program. Please check your email (and spam folder…just in case) to see if you were selected. If we stay on schedule, those selected should receive a prompt to accept the update later today/tonight.

 

We’ll be sending another wave of notifications later this week, but we are holding registration open a bit longer to make sure everyone has a chance to participate. If you signed up but did not receive a mail yet, please head over to the connect site and review your information to make sure it is correct. I am being told that there are quite a few people did not properly complete the survey. If this is the first you are reading about the Preview Program, go ahead and sign up and you may be chosen to participate before the update is released on August 11th.

 

Update: Sign in to the connect site to see if you are accepted, since many of you did not opt-in to allow us to send you emails, or your email was not properly record in the system.

  • oCORYo

    did wave 3 already go out?

  • Anonymous

    YEA I GOT IN ON THE SECOND WAVE

  • Mayor ODoyle

    So, I don’t wanna sound like the acme of n00bishness but, the “Preview Program” means that I can see all the new features that are coming, but can’t actually USE any of them?

  • EveofLight

    Some of the features in the preview program are usable like the avatar marketplace and the netflix movie party, there are some notable differences in the way you see achievements now.

    I don’t know if you could previously eject your game when it was in the tray…I think you could open the tray when it was empty but I noticed the word eject now…(I will check in some videos I recorded previously and check if thats new)

    Now when you invite people to party all you have to do it click on as many names as you want (8 people limit) and you don’t have to go to their names on the friend list and then click X, their names are nicely put in a list and it doesn’t ask you to confirm to send the message you can also invite recent players straight from that list. Just start a party and click away (8 people limit)

    Only people who paid attention to the details of the NXE dashboard will notice different things

  • Nissassa 17

    Yes i got in, get in Microsoft

  • Choke On Candy

    Love the update! Netflix party option is awesome…but it’s only for U.S users? Was so excited about the avatar clothes. I’m waiting for a guitar to be available for my little person. =)
