The Alpha ring, for example, is now able to test the new dashboard design that was announced recently, before this trickles down to Beta and the newly branded Delta and Omega tiers. While the insider program was pretty much closed, now Microsoft has announced that anyone can be part of Xbox One Insider program, however, there are some conditions and flexible levels of access.

Anyone signed up to the Insider program will receive system updates early, as well as the chance to test other apps and games.

One of our key goals since creating the Xbox Insider Program has been ensuring interested Xbox users can provide valuable feedback on system updates before they are broadly released.

If users have multiple consoles then they will be able to choose separate levels of access for each of the console. In return, members are encouraged to give feedback on their experience via the Insider app. The rings will enable some flexibility in receiving updates as well. This means if you're concerned with bandwidth usage or the frequency of updates, you can simply move to a lower ring whenever you'd like. Recently we partnered with our friends at Rare and already thousands of gamers are sailing the Sea of Thieves across both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
