Windows 10 Testers can now Easily Test Beta Apps
Microsoft announced the introduction of its new option for Windows 10 testers on February 15, 2018.
Windows is allowing testers to access beta versions of built-in apps, for which they are need not install early operating system code. The software maker is creating new updates such as mail and photos throughout its Windows 10 test periods.
“We heard feedback from Windows Insiders that having to opt-in to Skip Ahead to receive the latest app updates wasn’t ideal as it required Insiders to also be on super-early and sometimes unstable builds of the OS,” says Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar.
The change will allow one to stay safely on the Release Preview Ring or even the Slow Ring and opt into app updates within the built-in apps themselves. New options are expected to be available in the settings or about page within apps.
Microsoft also started testing its future Windows 10 update, alongside the new preview program, codenamed Redstone 5. The first build is available to Skip Ahead Windows 10 testers, before Microsoft adds more features. Existing testers of Redstone 4, Microsoft’s Windows 10 update due next month, can also test a new build (17101) as the company gets closer to finalizing this update. Microsoft has still not named this upcoming update, but the company has referred to it as Spring Creators Update.
