Native Beam streaming has already enjoyed just over a weekof testing on the Xbox Insider Alpha ring, and now it looks like it will soon make its way to those on the Beta ring. Speaking in response to a user on Twitter, Xbox's Brad Rossetti says that current plans are to bring Beam streaming to Beta users this week, though that depends on getting an Alpha build out that fixes broken multiplayer first.
Beam streaming is just one of the many new features and changes coming to the Xbox One with the upcoming Creators update, but it's sure to be one of the biggest. Following testing in the Beta ring, we should see Beam streaming continue to roll out for testing in last two ring, Preview Rings 3 and 4, ahead of a full release later this spring.
In any event, if you count yourself among the Beta ring faithful, you'll likely get your first shot at trying Beam streaming on your console relatively soon.
