    If you'd like to register to get the new XBox dashboard update early, the application is now live.

    https://connect.microsoft.com/XboxLIVEUpdate

    Xbox LIVE Update Program - Fall 2011

    We appreciate your interest and support in helping us to test out the latest updates. This is an important update as we continually strive to improve our products and we could not do so without the help of our great Xbox community.

    When do I Register My Console(s):

    This year we have a new model for console registration so you were not asked to manually provide it during initial registration (as was the case in previous programs). We will provide details on the new process via this portal as soon as we are ready to start having consoles registered

    What to Expect:

    As part of this program, an update will be pushed out to your registered console(s) that will include select dashboard features including:

    New Metro design with integrated Kinect voice and gesture controls
    Beacons
    Facebook Sharing
    Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile
    Other features and entertainment partner apps may also come into view during the program period and will be messaged via this portal.

    Administrative Note: If you were in previous programs you will notice a few changes on the navigation available on our Connect Site. Same basic structure, but primary navigation is available by clicking on Xbox LIVE Update Home link on the upper left-hand navigation of this page. At the bottom of that page you will find links to all relevant program information.


    Just sharing & Good Luck in being selected. :)

    They are 'ecstatic' to have me on board.

    Steady on Microsoft, i'll be needing a cold shower soon speaking to me like that. :)

    What's a connect dashboard? I applied, but didn't get a email or anything.

    Nevermind, I went to connect.microsoft.com and my dashboard was empty. :(

    Don't you have a new link 1jaxstate1 (Next Steps) explaining they will shortly make the console serial number registration available?

    It's on the main page above the welcome message, not on the left.

    I'm glad you posted this. I had been wondering yesterday whether anything was going on with that. So last night I went and got my code and all for it. I'm excited, to say the least lol.

    The Pre Release Channel has now appeared on my dash, so i know all is well.

    Check you have it too, then you know all is well with your registration for the new dashboard. :)

    I failed to get the Pre Release Channel. I followed the instructions to get my console registered again so no worries... just have to wait a few more days for it to show up.

    Yeah, there's not a lot on the pre release channel just now anyway jchapman01.

    I suspect we will get an update on Microsoft's favourite tinkering day. (Tuesday)

    Seems to be taking forever to get the dashboard update this year. :(

    So has anyone gotten this yet? I'm still waiting on mine but so far nothing yet. I do have the prerelease channel though. Aghhh come on Microsoft.

    I know it's taking forever 5tephen, i really thought we would get it yesterday but alas no. All we have to go on was Major Nelson's tweet that he would have some good news later on in the week for us.

    Doe's that mean we won't be getting it this week after all ?

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    Well xbox.com has been updated, so if winrumors is correct, we should have the new dashboard in less than an hour. (9.00 PM UK Time)

    Time will tell.

    Xbox.com redesign goes live, beta dashboard due today | WinRumors

    Fingers crossed, it's correct. :)
