Microsoft has already confirmed a while ago that it will purchase the Beam application and now, it seems that the company is already working on new applications for it. For those of you who don’t know yet, Beam is an interactive live streaming service that allows viewers to interact with the users who are streaming games online.
According to Beam’s official Twitter account, the application will soon be released for both Windows 10 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, the company didn’t say when exactly the application will be released for the mentioned platforms, but it added that this will happen sometime this winter.
Since Beam becomes part of Team Xbox, we might see some great new features, huge influx of new community members and of course epic new interactive game integrations. However, we are not sure if these features will be integrated to the Windows 10 and Xbox One version of Beam, but we are pretty sure that Microsoft is now trying to come with a great product in order to lure some of the Twitch/YouTube gamers who are using these platforms to stream games.
