"Xbox One S...the best Windows 10 console for gaming" ahem
"Windows 10 will be your platform for your gaming glory"
Jenn McCoy to show us what's new in the Creators Update for Windows 10
3 announcements for gaming...
(1) Game broadcasting for Windows 10
Reasons for game streaming is for entertainment, to see a game before you buy, etc.
(Of course, the service is Beam they are demonstrating.)
Streaming can be intimidating...
Beam is being built right into Windows 10 with the Creators Update
Win+G to start it in Windows 10 and click one button and you're live
(This is a super simple solution. Kind of feel bad for Twitch, this is too easy for anyone)
Xbox Live lets your friends no you are live. Clubs will also help distribute your content.
"tune in from anywhere...console, pc, or even smartphone"
2nd announcement: Players given the ability to create custom tournaments on xbox live
"great way to compete against your friends" "Arena on Xbox Live will do it all for you" " Don't need to be a pro to qualify"
Demo of how to set up a custom tournament
Service wlll compile stats and determine the winner
Focusing on and boasting about the Xbox One S
(hmm, wonder if there will be a new One S announcement...talking about HDR gaming)
Dolby Atmos and bitstream audio pass thru for the Xbox One S
coming with the Creators Update to the console. Nice! Audio nerds will love that.
"A few key people...who matter in our day to day lives"
Lots of circles being shown :P
"What would it mean to prioritize people in Windows?"
"Faster ways to connect and share with the people who matter most"
"lots of steps involved" right now, could be simpler
This is the people bar Zac wrote about a few weeks ago
(little circles in your start bar, drag and drop and content to share instantly)
People show up in now in the new Share Charm. Can add a message, send and done.
(I think the people bar/sharing is awesome)
Unified filters for SMS, Skype, Email, and Xbox Live, and SKype for Business..and extensible for partners
Dedicated inboxes for people regardless of Skype, email, SMS, etc.
