Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20161

Today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20161 to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.

A few quick notes:

First—as a reminder, these builds are from our Active Development Branch and are not tied to any upcoming Windows 10 release. Insiders in the Dev Channel are getting the latest code from our engineers.

Second—we have officially rolled out channels to the Windows Insider Program Settings page, If you haven’t already, check out our blog post here outlining the transition from rings to channels.

And third—we’re introducing some cool new features in today’s build, however many of these features are rolling out to a subset of Insiders in the Dev Channel at first, to help us quickly identify issues that may impact performance and reliability. This means Insiders may not see some of these features right away, but rest assured they will be gradually rolled out to everyone in the Dev Channel. Check out what the team has been working on!

What’s new in Build 20161

Other updates for Insiders

New Windows Insider website design

Today, we launched a redesigned version of the Windows Insider website that’s build with Microsoft’s new, more accessible framework. This was an important chance to align our site with improvements Microsoft is making across the board, create a more beautiful and user-friendly home for the program, and better highlight all the ways you can engage with us.

Right now, the site is only available in the en-us English language while we also stand up new and improved translated versions of the site. Thank you for your patience as we try to make this website work better for Insiders around the world.

If you speak English, please go take a look. We’re also implementing new tools that will help us improve the site based on how you all are using it, so the more you explore the better. If you have any issues, reach out to us @WindowsInsider on Twitter.
