If you're an active member of the Xbox Insider program, then you'll no doubt be familiar with the Xbox Preview Forums. After years of being the place for members to discuss and provide feedback on new builds, Microsoft is shifting the discussion to a new home: Reddit.

In a blog post today, Microsoft announced that Insider discussions will now live on Reddit at the r/xboxinsiders subreddit. Other than the change of location, the discussion will remain the same, with Microsoft looking to continue the "Insiders-helping-Insiders approach to community building and listening." The community will also serve as a place to talk about upcoming features, game flights, and feedback.

As for the current Preview Forums, Microsoft says that they'll be locked "in the next few weeks." This change has no effect on the rest of the Xbox forums, which will remain the same.
