With these changes, everyone who owns an Xbox One will be able to join the Omega way and work their way up the ranks from there. At Build 2016, Microsoft said it planned to merge the two programs, but later changed its mind. We've enjoyed seeing that you, our community, share that same goal. If you are providing good and actionable feedback you will increase your opportunity for that Alpha Preview Ring invite down the road.

There are flexible levels of access to the Xbox One Insider Program now, and the base one is called Omega.

The Xbox Live Creators Program is now live and allows game developers to quickly and directly publish games to Xbox One and Windows 10, with a simplified certification process.

There's a one-time fee of $20 associated with the program, but as you can see, it's nominal. It's easy to get started!

Epic Games has released Unreal Engine 4.17 which features support for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One X console.
