MS Takes On Twitch With Beam

Microsoft, looking to build its portfolio of technology services, has snapped up “interactive livestreaming service” Beam, a competitor to Twitch.

Beam’s interface allows an easier level of audience interaction, which Microsoft has already showcased with Minecraft.

Matt Salasamendi, founder and CEO of Beam, said the deal will make Beam “scale faster” and allow it to expand the company while “bolstering the infrastructure”.

“We’ll continue to offer broadcasts across all gaming platforms, just as we do today,” he added.
