Xbox Insiders will soon be getting a feature that’s been available to Windows Insiders for a while: Skip Ahead. This means that Insiders in the Alpha ring will be able to preview Redstone 4 and 5 builds simultaneously.
According to a post on Xbox Wire, the “Alpha – Skip Ahead” ring is coming to Alpha members within the coming weeks. After that members in other preview rings will be invited to take part. Users will have early access to advanced builds, specifically RS5. This means they’ll be testing out new features months before the general public.
Later this month, Alpha members will be able to choose between remaining in their current ring with an RS4 build or they can enroll in Skip Ahead RS5. If you have two different Xbox One consoles, you can even enroll them each in a different ring if you want.
As always there’s a chance these builds will be unstable, so take that into account when considering which ring you want to enroll in.
