Important note about recent app updates for Insiders in the Fast and Slow rings

Hello Windows Insiders,

Starting with Build 16232, we announced that we have paused testing new versions of our inbox apps with Windows Insiders in the Fast and Slow rings in order to make sure we provide customers with the highest quality inbox apps experience for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release possible. The result of this meant that some features we were testing in our inbox apps would temporarily disappear because some of our inbox apps won’t have all the latest new features without getting an update from the Windows Store. Unfortunately due to an issue with our targeting, some Insiders in the Fast and Slow rings received app updates for some of the inbox Windows apps such as Photos, Groove Music, Movies and TV and Paint 3D last week that brought back some new features and capabilities. Because it is critical that Insiders are experiencing the same versions of the inbox apps that will be released as the default for all Windows customers when we release the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we are releasing updates to the inbox apps that restores them to what they were previously. This means that Insiders may notice some new features and capabilities disappear again temporarily until we officially resume flighting app updates to the Fast and Slow rings.

All inbox apps will be impacted by this and could see a loss of some UX and features. However, here a few specific examples of things being lost in some of the apps:

Sorry for the inconvenience,
