So, we all know that Beam, the Seattle-Based streaming service was picked up by Microsoft. Now, reading some news, I found out that today, Xbox Insiders get to try out the new Beam Interface on Xbox! (Or at least see it. )
Well, I already know I can’t stream with my connection speeds, and I hear that Beam is better for that, so I would love to test it out and see if I can finally start broadcasting (although, I personally don’t have high hopes).
It looks very cool. I checked the Beam Website today, and Signed Up. Its very streamlined and modern! I wonder if we will get it soon. I’d help stream on beam. Hopefully you can stream with your internet.
It does make sense. The application is wonky but the stream I tuned into this afternoon worked great. So the streaming itself seems fine.
On an interesting note, I noticed a feedback button on the iPhone app so I sent a note to Beam suggesting they make search by game a lot easier. The app is pretty clunky right now. Anyway they wrote me back right away with a standard answer “we’re constantly working to improve our app etc.” but I thought it seemed like a good sign.
Well, I’m sure they are working on it. They have Microsoft on their side, with resources and such.
I tuned into a stream today as well. It was running amazing. Plus, I started talking to a streamer, and I was amazed on how quickly he answered it, which is something Twitch doesn’t have. (30 sec. Delay)
