The lights are on
Update: Microsoft said today there's a second open call for Xbox Live
subscribers to sign up and test out the beta program for the 2012
update. They said they're accepting far more beta testers this time
Microsoft is looking for testers to try out some of the new features being added to the next update for Xbox Live coming this fall.
"The beta is an early build of the product and enables Microsoft to gather important feedback from customers and to test new features, such as voice commands and Bing voice search in new languages," the company says. "All participants who register for this beta will be required to agree and adhere to an NDA that will not allow them to speak or write about the experience."
Space is limited, so sign up soon. If you're selected, the update will be pushed to your Xbox 360 when the public beta period begins. The update includes three of the following features:
If you want to register, head over to Microsoft website to do so.

somebody will get the news out.
Hi! When I sign in on the connect site it says "The invite you gave us has already been used by another connect-customer. We are sorry for this." What does this mean? Am I already selected as a beta tester? Somebody who knows?
They likely wouldn't even want me as a tester given I don't have a Kinect. All I'd really like is the ability to actually customize by panes the way I would hot keys; let me put the items and areas I access the most right up front instead of having to dig my way through layers of menus please. *Headdesk*
It seems like I'm one of the few people that use a Xbox for gaming nowadays, so this beta and update mean nothing.
More updates and more greatness, well lets hope so anyways
Man those are tiny minor undates for the xbox, by the time we get actual good updates like avatar awards , or our own virtual avatar world , there will be a new xbox!
Yes I got into the beta! Excited for internet explorer. freexboxredeemcodes.com
Sure no reason not to. I like being a test dummy.
Hopefully, it won't be as bad as the last big update.
ok thank u
I hate xbox updates >.<
I never play my 360 anymore, not to mention the new UI they have for it now is pathetic. I shouldn't be seeing ads anywhere when I'm paying for Xbox Live...I doubt they'll make it any better next time.
I heard this kinda sucked
Thus far there really haven't been many features added to beta that I've noted...
My Xbox has been nice to me lately, thanks Netflix :)
