After a month of testing Microsoft is now releasing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update to those looking to download it.

Microsoft says they have had positive data and feedback from the longer preview phase and are now offering it to seekers and are suggesting companies start testing themselves.

If you are ready to install the update, open your Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and select Check for updates. Once the update appears, you can select Download and install now.

Microsoft is however not offering the download to all seekers at present as they are slowly throttling up this availability, while they carefully monitor data and feedback. If you still want to force the update you can do that via the Update Assitant here.

Microsoft notes that starting in June Microsoft will start updating devices running the April 2018 Update, and earlier versions of Windows 10 as they exit service.  Read more about the roll-out to enterprise here.

As part of Microsoft’s commitment to increasing transparency, a new Windows release health dashboard is now live, offering timely information on the current rollout status and known issues (open and resolved) across both feature and monthly updates. The new dashboard provides a single page for each currently supported version of Windows so you can quickly search for issues by keyword, including any safeguard holds on updates, see the current status of each issue, and find important announcements.

The May 2019 Update provides users with the latest features, more control over updates, and greater transparency for a better update experience.  Read our review of the OS update here.
