To round off the news, Microsoft also confirmed that the huge Windows 10 Creators update for PC will also be launching on April 11, "bringing new features for PC gamers such as Game Mode, and seamless Beam streaming directly from the Game bar to Windows 10". And in the GameDVR menu, you now have easier access to capture gameplay and to modify your options - when recording, you'll see in the menu overlay that it lasts up to 5 minutes and within the Guide, you can also "Record this" for up to 10 minutes. It can be accessed by single-tapping the Xbox button on the controller or clicking over to the left when on the Home screen.

Microsoft acquired Beam's parent company in August 2016 when Beam was still testing its service. Indeed, this new interface makes booting up a stream stupidly simple, and it's easy to decide what you do and don't want to show on the stream. For example, the latest update gives streamers something besides Twitch to rely on in the form of Beam, a new streaming service that will also make its way to Windows 10 at a later date. During the Beam launch announcement for Xbox One, however, Microsoft did not mention this particular feature. "Beyond creativity, it brings new features to Microsoft Edge, additional security capabilities and privacy tools, and so much more". As noted by the company, this group helps Microsoft test the update path from their current version to the new Windows 10 version.

From 11 April, Microsoft will be rolling out a large Creators Update to devices running Windows 10.

According to Microsoft, Beam Streaming is built into the Xbox One, which means that there is no need for gamers to load any other application, such as Twitch, on their consoles prior to play or for broadcasting the game session. Additionally, the background will now feature artwork from the game, provided you don't have custom background art already set. The new update will also provide Xbox One players with a more streamlined interface.
