Happy holidays from the Xbox Insider Team! We all hope you’re taking this time to celebrate with friends and family and catch up on your gaming backlog.
Recently, we had the chance to get together as a team to celebrate another successful year with you, our Xbox Insider community! Not only that, but we also took the chance to wish a happy anniversary to the Xbox Insider Blog.
Unveiled in October 2017, the Xbox Insider Blog has grown rapidly, becoming a great spot not only for preview-related release notes but also Team Xbox Q&As, playtest announcements and much more. In 2018 alone, we’ve shown off our personal Avatars using the new Xbox Avatar Editor, thanked you all for your feedback and ideas, and announced the Level 2+ and Level 10+ Xbox Insider Exclusive Avatar shirts. It’s been a fun year of serving you better!
Check out some images from our celebration, where we took an hour at the end of the workday to honor the Xbox Insider Blog, catch up and complete a team-building exercise, which pitted our Program Managers against our Software Developers. (We now know which of us are rule-benders and which of us are focused on building aesthetically pleasing structures!)
It goes without saying that we can’t wait to ring in the new year, new playtests, new features and more with you in 2019. In the meantime, thanks as always for your feedback and participation!
