Signups Open: Next Xbox Dashboard Preview Program!

Xbox LIVE Public Preview Program

At E3 we announced the new Xbox LIVE dashboard which will deliver intuitive navigation, increased responsiveness and improved engagement with Xbox experiences – all beginning this holiday. Now that our work on the dashboard is almost complete, we are announcing an open call for all Xbox LIVE members to register to participate in a preview program to help us test the system. This is an important program as we continually strive to ensure the reliability of a service that reaches tens of millions globally. We could not do so without the ongoing help of our great community. 

Once this program is kicked off, an update will be pushed to your console that will contain select dashboard features, including:

  • New design with integrated Kinect voice and gesture controls
  • Beacons
  • Facebook Sharing
  • Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile

Other features and entertainment partner apps may come into view during the program period.

Note: A console in the program is expected to remain fully compatible with standard retail consoles not in the program. (e.g. party chat will function)


For those familiar with previous registrations for our program, we have a new model for registering your consoles this year.  The new model is a more automated process that should make it easier for you.  We will not ask you to type in your console information upon initial registration; once you are approved to participate in the program, look for details on our portal about how to register your console.

Click here for the initial register for the Public Preview.

The latest information will be available to you via the www.connect.microsoft.com/xboxliveupdate program portal.

Or cut out the middle-man & go straight to MS Connect:

Cutting out the middle-man works.

Thanks for posting! :)

 Cheers for that Lewi! ^o^ I wanted to sign up earlier, but there was this glitch were we could've signed up, but Microsoft changed their minds instantly, so no one was able to sign up at that time.

I've signed up and got the same message. I think this means you've successfully registered for it and an email will be sent if you've been picked for the BETA.

The successfully applied notice is just confirmation for registering you will get an e-mail confirming you have made it in within the next two weeks. So good luck everyone.
