If you wanted to jump aboard the 2012 Xbox LIVE Update Public Beta bandwagon but missed the figurative boat in July, then you will be pleased to know that the overwhelming response at the end of the month so impressed Microsoft, that they have announced a second open call for Xbox LIVE subscribers who fully intend to make the cut, so to speak, this time around in order to test out the beta program. It is said that a whole lot more beta testers will be accepted in the latest “recruitment” round, but do bear in mind that there will still be limited space, and once spots are fully filled, the beta will again, close its doors – making the adage “the early bird gets the worm” all the more relevant this time around.
Selected beta testers will see an update pushed to their Xbox 360 within a few days’ time, where it will carry new Xbox LIVE features such as Internet Explorer for Xbox, recommendations and ratings, pinning and favorites, an enhanced category search and discovery features, and Voice Search in specified markets. Those who are interested can register here, where you will first need to hand over your firstborn – I jest, just agree to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for confidentiality reasons and you should be good to go.
