“… It's always interesting to work with a Microsoft product and then eventually see it on the market and know that my non-techie brain made some contribution to that product.”

How Microsoft Usability Research Works

How it works

Sign up and we’ll contact you when a research study looks like a match. By participating with us and providing us with your feedback, you’ll impact the future of technology. In return, you’ll get a gratuity of Microsoft software, hardware, or games as a thank you – and our products become a little more “your way.”

Who Participates Microsoft Usability Research

Who participates

You! Microsoft products and technologies are used across the globe by nearly every demographic. Whatever your age or experience level with computers, we want your feedback on our products. Kids, teens, adults – everyone can participate and change the future of technology. Of course, if you're under 17 you'll have to have a parent or guardian’s permission.

What You Do In Microsoft Usability

What you’ll do

You’ll try out new technology, or show us how you use products every day. Our researchers will ask questions and want your honest feedback. You might participate in a study at our campuses (most are in Redmond, WA), or you might provide us feedback online, participate in a focus group, or choose to get a visit from a researcher. We have many different ways of evaluating software and hardware, and we make every effort to ensure participation will be easy and rewarding for you. Play the video.
