The public beta which Microsoft opened in July and was quickly filled up has been expanded. Numbers are still limited, but try your luck over on the application page for entry.
The beta includes an early look at the following due to arrive later this year:
- Internet Explorer for Xbox
- Recommendations and ratings
- Pinning and favorites
- Enhanced category search and discovery features
- Voice search (in specified markets)
Note: MS has warned of heavy traffic on the application site causing issues with the submission process – be patient and keep trying.
