Register now for 2012 Xbox Live update public beta

Test Internet Explorer, personalised dashboard recommendations and more

Microsoft has issued a call for Xbox Live subscribers to participate in the 2012 Xbox Live update public beta.


"We need members of our valued community to help us fine-tune this early build of Xbox Live," says Major Nelson. "What do you love? What would you like to see improved? Numbers are limited, so sign up today."

Successful candidates will have an update pushed to their console once the public beta begins. It'll contain select features including:

  • Internet Explorer for Xbox
  • Personalized dashboard recommendations
  • Enhanced category search and discovery features

If chosen, users will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement and fill out a five-minute survey offering feedback.

Xbox Live's subscriber base has grown by 15 percent in the past year, Microsoft said last week.
