Providing feedback is one of the most important things a user of the Windows 10 Preview can do. But it seems like some Insiders don’t provide any feedback to Microsoft, using the Windows 10 Preview just to try out its many new features. Microsoft isn’t a fan of such practices, so the company recently changed the way Insiders provide feedback.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft made it impossible for users to turn off the Feedback feature in Windows 10 Preview. Apparently, that wasn’t enough. Now, it has introduced another change to the Feedback app: merging it with the Insider Hub in the upcoming Redstone build. The new app will be called “Feedback Hub,” and is already being tested internally.
The new Feedback Hub app will look almost identical to the old Insider Hub app but with the ability to provide feedback, as well. So, with the Feedback Hub, users will have everything they need to properly test Windows 10 Preview builds all in one place. The app will provide information about new features and display feedback from other Insiders, too, so you can have an idea about what works well and what doesn’t.
As we already mentioned, some users are not happy with the way feedback works due to privacy concerns. It is widely believed that Microsoft collects private user data with Windows 10 Preview and the “new” app for providing feedback probably won’t change the way they think.
Although the new Feedback Hub app has yet to be released with the upcoming Redstone build for Windows 10 Preview, we already have a screenshot of the app available. Check it out below:
While this screenshot is of a Windows 10 Mobile version of the app, Microsoft will surely introduce the new app to both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile once the new build is ready.
