Microsoft will begin the Kinect beta program soon - and has sent out the first batch of invites.
TechRadar reports that invites for Microsoft's eagerly anticipated update was distributed through Microsoft Connect, which is used by the company to obtain customer feedback on new products.
Running a beta program for an upcoming update is a common practice for Microsoft. The firm issued similar invites for a number of the dashboard updates.
Microsoft has said that the beta is "a unique opportunity to see pre-release software."
Microsoft is currently scheduled to hold a Kinect focused event at the company's GamesCom press conference in Cologne next week. It is also set to reveal 'big PC gaming news' soon.
