Team Xbox Spotlight: Yifei, the Xbox Insider Summer Intern

Summer is always a special time at Microsoft, as the company is joined by over a thousand interns from all over the world. The internship program not only allows students the ability to show off and develop their skills throughout the 12-week program but also allows them to consider whether they’d like to pursue a full-time career with the company after graduation. Interning at Microsoft isn’t just about the daily grind, however, as plenty of fun activities are planned for the interns, such as special presentations by executives and even a huge concert at the end of the summer.

Thanks So Much for Your Involvement in Alpha – Skip Ahead!

As we’ve often said here on the Xbox Insider Blog: Our community is what makes the Xbox Insider Program so special. We’ve been excited to grow the program – from its origins as the Xbox Preview Program to now – with your help. Recently, we introduced the Alpha – Skip Ahead ring, which grants a select number of our Xbox Insiders an even earlier look into what our engineers are up to.
