Microsoft Promotes Windows 10 Creators Update to the Release Preview Ring

The Xbox User Interface-Lift…

In the Creators Update, Microsoft added Beam broadcasting technology making it easier for users to broadcast gameplay on Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Other big new features include the new Home design, which is designed for improved performance, and which puts content related to the games you're now playing front and center. Some of those features are already arriving on the Xbox One, including an overhauled dashboard and Beam streaming. This allows players to easily manage controls of their music, take screenshots and record video. The Copilot feature allows two controllers to act as if they are one, allowing one player to aid another player during gameplay. The Xbox One PC users can also learn about the gaming updates coming with the Windows 10 Creators update in April. "Beyond creativity, it brings new features to Microsoft Edge, additional security capabilities and privacy tools, and so much more".

The first thing one would notice post the update is the new look of the Home Screen.

Accessibility has also changed with the new Xbox One update.

The update also brings Windows Hello, a feature that allows a desktop or laptop to pair with an iPhone, Android smartphone, or a Windows Phone. Cortana can also be added as an overlay while you play to carry out a range of tasks including setting reminders and accessing Party controls. It's possible that Microsoft uses Beam for Project Scorpio, which rumored to stream in 4K.

Limits can be set by a parent account at, via "Screen time". It now is available on the Xbox One for fans finally.

Blu-ray player bitstream passthrough: The Blu-ray disc player on Xbox One now supports bitstream passthrough, which allows your receiver to decode audio natively.

Over the past few months, we have been targeting hundreds of improvements across the board. Alternatively, you can also install the ISO or upgrade using from the Windows Insider Program tab. The centrality of Beam to this new Xbox experience seems like it could be more of a distraction for a large number of users, but otherwise these changes feel like a clear win. As we've said, this is just the beginning - be on the lookout for more great features. However, if you have the itch to get your hands on the creation and gaming-focused Windows 10 Creators Update, then you can manually download it on April 5. The rest of Windows 10 users will have to wait for a rollout, but in case you are impatient to get the completed Creators Update quicker, you can use the Windows 10 Update Assistant to expedite the process and get one immediately.
