at an event in New York City, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 10 Creators Update, a free update coming in early 2017 with a host of new features that empower people to create and share their experiences with others.  For gamers, the Windows 10 Creators Update will allow anyone to easily broadcast their gameplay and create their own tournaments on the fastest, most reliable multiplayer network – Xbox Live.

Beam Integration Makes Game Broadcasting Easy and More Interactive

Today, gamers on Windows 10 PCs can enjoy seamless access to gaming features via Game bar (by pressing Windows key and G) like Game DVR, making it easy to share your epic gaming moments with your friends via Xbox Live. We’re excited to announce that, with the release of the Creators Update in early 2017, Game bar will allow gamers to start a Beam broadcast for any game almost instantly.

    Geez... hmm I think I will keep using shadowplay!

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    I wouldn't be surprised though if they announce streaming to something like "Windows Streaming" - re-badging beam.pro to the new name.
