January may see many more Windows Insider builds than before



We are used to seeing an Insider build of Window 10 Mobile about once to twice a month (and sometimes less). WindowsBlogItalia has however reminded us that starting this January, after the Christmas break, we could be seeing many more builds over the next few weeks.

One of the things that I have heard many times from Insiders in the Fast ring is that they want to see a faster pace of build availability. We’ve been considering how we want to respond to this feedback, and in January we expect to pick up the pace. To do this, we are re-evaluating the ring promotion criteria to allow more builds to reach Windows Insiders. The new criteria will be much closer to our criteria for flighting to our internal rings, which means more builds will pass it and be released externally to the Fast ring.

Of course Microsoft is aware that a faster pace means more bugs and other issues will also reach insiders, but suggests for those who this is bit too hot should probably downgrade to the slow ring ( Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options and under “Get Insider Preview builds” moving the slider to the Slow ring.) I personally would suggest now may be a very good time to leave the Insider program, with Windows 10 Mobile TH2 now more or less final, and before the pain of Redstone, which will likely see a lot of under the hood changes, really gets started.

Will our readers who are Insiders be along for the ride, or will you take this opportunity to now get off the train? Let us know below.
