Xbox Insider beta ring members getting their Beam streaming update

After a period exclusive to the Alpha ring, beta members of the Xbox Insider Program will be seeing an update very soon that brings native Beam streaming to their consoles.

We expected it to roll out at some point this week, but Microsoft has certainly kept us hanging on to the very end. It's due to roll out at 2 p.m. Pacific today, Feb. 25, but that'll be anything from 10 p.m. in the UK to Feb. 26 in other parts of the world.

So if you're looking for something to do this weekend, you can go ahead and get your stream on.
