After Microsoft acquired Beam last year, fans have been wondering when we will see Beam on Xbox One. The wait is almost over! The Beam app will be available for Xbox Insiders starting today. Fans will be able to login and watch, chat, and interact with their favorite Beam streamers. Viewers earn Sparks and XP that is used to interact with streams in a unique way. Beam features fun additions like sound boards that can make a stream a little more entertaining. And, in case you were not aware, you can stream from your Xbox using the Beam app! For a quick walkthrough, check out the video below –
I have been meaning to try Beam for a while, so I’m happy that it is now easily accessible from the console and Windows 10. For me, Twitch can be hit or miss in terms of quality of streams and quality of chat. The chat can be pretty toxic at times, so having another alternative for streaming will be beneficial.
