So it’s virtually self-evident that they would eventually bring the service to their Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and release an app for Xbox One. Beam allows its viewers to interact in new-fangled ways such as allowing the streamer to control certain aspects of a particular game, whilst the viewer may get to control another facet. This feature alone, and the fact that Beam has better technology backing it, makes it a more stable platform than twitch, so we’re undoubtedly convinced that Microsoft are in this for the end-game.
