Microsoft Rewards app for Xbox One now up for testing with Insiders

Now that Xbox Live Rewards is making the transition to Microsoft Rewards, Microsoft is taking the next step in its journey: an app for Xbox One. the company announced today that a Microsoft Rewards app (opens in new tab) is now available on the console for testing with Xbox Insiders.

If you're already familiar with Microsoft Rewards, you'll know what to expect here. The app allows you to check up on how many rewards points you've earned over your account's lifetime, as well as currently available points. And if you're ready to start spending, you can purchase things like gift cards with any points you've accrued. And if you're not yet a part of the program, you can join from the app as well.

The app is currently in beta testing, so expect some hiccups. If you want to start testing, Xbox Insiders in the U.S. can join the beta through the "Insider Content" portion of the Xbox Insider Hub. And while it's U.S.-only for right now, Microsoft says the app will launch in all countries where Microsoft Rewards is supported.

If you're an Xbox Insider and you don't yet see the Microsoft Rewards app available in the Insider Hub, don't fret; Microsoft plans to roll the app out to more Insiders "in the coming weeks."

  • One of the best innovations brought into the MSFT world.. If u own a Windows phone like I do and a Windows computer for work, all those frequent random searches done using Cortana or Bing literally gives u points which is giving you cash.. Amazing.
  • I would have liked this app on my 950XL, I understand that Windows Phone has somewhat been laid to rest, but there are still plenty of us out here still using the OS or even a UWP would have been nice, catering for Windows PC's, Xbox and Phone, I understand everything is mostly concentrating on IOS & Android right now, but it would have been a nice life vest to the rest of us still floating around out there!! App looks good though! I Also agree with the comment above, I love the fact that Microsoft rewards its loyal fan base, especially if your in the windows eco system which I very much am! One could only hope it would be available for Andromeda!
  • Feedback it I know they were working on it Before they retired the bling reward App
  • My guess is they would perfer you to use edge for that. As for andromeda it seems that we have to settle with using bing or edge to access the rewards
  • Great to know
  • All vert well if you live in the US, what about the rest of the world!!
  • Microsoft plans to roll it out to additional Microsoft Rewards markets soon.
    also. The app is available to Xbox Insiders in the United States during this beta but will launch to all countries where Microsoft Rewards is supported.
  • Was able to join since my console is set to us most the time but had to switch back to home country for app to load
  • It's in Japan now after the merge (xbox reward and MS reward merge).
  • It's about time, now if they could just the upload. It doesn't go past pending, and tells me to try again later.
  • Update: It has downloaded and all is well 😁
  • I'm really amazed at how cheap a year of Live is on Rewards relative to everything else. That is the number one thing I use it for getting my yearly sub, then anything above and beyond that is just a bonus.
  • Cant justify the 29000[30000 for level 1] wasting it on live even though its 79.99cad now
  • When will this be ready for Beta
  • Was able to signup for beta simply by changing my consoles country to us then changed back to home country after downloading it for it to work
