Microsoft to begin testing Windows 10 April 2020

Microsoft is planning to push the gas pedal for Windows 10 20H1, commonly known as the Windows 10 April 2020 Update. The company will start shipping 20H1 preview builds to Fast ring Insiders starting May 9, 2019.

The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is currently in the final stages of development, and Microsoft is all set to release it later in May.

The big M will add for some major improvements to the Action Center, Start menu, Settings app and other UI elements.

Furthermore, the company will introduce Windows Sandbox, a new Windows light theme experience as a part of its Windows 10 May 2019.

This update will be released to Release Preview Ring Insiders very soon. Before the company rolls out the Windows 10 May 2019 Update to the general public, Windows Insiders will have been testing for one month. Hopefully, the final OS version won’t bring too many bugs.

Windows 10 April 2020 Update released sooner than you expected

The development of Windows 10 20H1 (April 2020 Update) is also under progress. In order to align its development plans with the Windows Insider rings, the tech giant will also push the Windows 10 April 2020 Update update to the Skip Ahead Ring.

This will be done by speeding up the work on Windows 10 20H1. In this way, the preview builds of the update will be available to Fast ring insiders as well.

Currently, just the Skip Ahead Insiders have access to the Windows 10 20H1 builds. Microsoft also decided to merge the Fast Ring and Skip Ahead rings in the next few weeks. 

Last week, the Redmond giant rolled out Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18845 to Skip Ahead Insiders. Although the update did not come with any new features, it includes some general changes and improvements.

Notably, it fixed the issues related to launching Microsoft Edge and Start menu bugs that existed in previous builds.
