New features incoming.
The Microsoft Xbox One has had a bit of a resurgent 2016, especially in the second half of this year. While most people believe it’s still not selling as many consoles as the PS4, the Xbox One S has certainly helped things. Microsoft has even claimed this console is the best-selling model in the United States.
Now it appears Microsoft has doubled down on its success. During Microsoft’s Windows event yesterday, the company announced it’s about ready to integrate the Beam service. This service is said to allow users to watch live game streams and interact in “near real-time” with broadcasters according.
Basically, this will work quite a bit like Twitch, though it will be native to Windows 10 and Xbox One devices. The other feature that was detailed Arena on Xbox Live. This service will allow users to set a tournament’s style, as well as define the rules for those tournament, invite friends and track tournament progress across XBL or Windows 10. Furthermore, the company also announced that Bitstream Audio Pass which supports Dolby Atmos was coming soon to Xbox One.
