Beam’s latest update is a big quality improvement; now available to ‘Pro’ users

In a Tuesday blog post, Beam game-streaming service – which was acquired by Microsoft in August this year – has revealed that it has rolled out a new update which unfolds a substantial quality improvement.

Revealing that the new Beam version has been built from the ground up for scalability, Beam’s Matt Salsamendi said in the blog post that the upgraded capabilities of the service have initially been rolled out to Beam ‘Pro’ users, and will be available to all users in 2017.

With the latest update bringing a notable quality enhancement to Beam, the game-streaming service is now capable of supporting data rates up to 10 Mbps and resolutions up to 2560×1440 at 60 frames per second. Beam will also switch to a pure HTML5 interface.

In addition, the new update also gives Beam a new logo; and brings to the service new scheduling features, along with the capability to create events which are broadcast by multiple streamers.

Furthermore, the new Beam version also allows users to log into the game-streaming service via Xbox Live, over and above the existing log-in options through Twitter and Discord.
