Microsoft is currently planning to bring the Microsoft Rewards to another new country Australia at the end of this month. The program will replace the old Xbox Live Rewards and will provide users with options for earning points via the Microsoft Eco System.
Microsoft rewards is aimed at giving users points for additional items like Edge or Bing and the points earned can be spent in a wide variety of Microsoft digital products. This is different from the Xbox Live Rewards as the points earned via the Xbox Live Rewards can only be spent on Games.
The launch of the Microsoft Rewards program will be happening at the end of the month and users who would not be interested in being part of the new program are adviced to opt out of the Xbox Live Reward Program.
