Introducing Windows Insider Channels
Today, we’re excited to announce some changes to the way we release new builds to all Windows Insiders.
We are transitioning and converting our current ring model
, based on the frequency
of builds, to a new channel model
that pivots on the quality
of builds and better supports parallel
coding efforts. In addition to this change, Insiders will also find similar offering names and expectations across Windows and Office programs and soon Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Teams.
Our goal is to not only make it clearer for existing Insiders to choose the experience that’s right for them, but also for new Insiders to pick the right channel as they join. The Insider community is very important to us all and we’re working to align how all our Insider programs work better together across Microsoft.
Read on to learn more about channels, why we’re making the change, and what existing Insiders need to do to be prepared. (Spoiler: Nothing. We got you covered!)https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperi ... -channels/
