Most people prefer their digital lives with the tight functionality of a well-tested final product, but some crave life in the wild west of the beta, and those digital renegades will now get a chance to be even closer to the edge with Xbox's new 'Skip Ahead' ring. Getting on the list gives users access to testing features that are earlier than even Xbox's beta, meaning gamers can be the very first to try things out.

Not only does being a Skip Ahead ring member mean that users will be able to experience new features, apps, and more months ahead of the general gaming population, but it also gives them a say in what ultimately makes it to consumers. The testing in Skip Ahead has a practical purpose of seeing what works and what doesn't, so users' moves and opinions matter.
