If I join the Xbox preview program, will I still be able to talk with other people in party chat who aren't in the program? I just want to know before I make that leap.
There is a possibility that you won't be able to. If Microsoft change the audio codec for chat then you'd be blocked from talking to anyone except those in the preview.
If there is anything you value about the One at the moment then don't join the preview, as there is a chance that it could break.
Then I guess I won't be joining at the moment. Thanks for the reply.
