If you expected Microsoft to drop a new Insider Redstone 2 build this week, don’t hold your breath. According to a new post on the Windows 10 Feedback Hub, the team is currently busy updating the services used to monitor and deliver builds to Windows Insiders. Once that work is done, the company expect to release the next Redstone 2 build to Windows Insiders as soon as next week.

In the meantime, the Windows Insider engineering team also explains that any changes to your Windows Insider ring settings will not be taken into account until Microsoft is done upgrading its services. In other words, switching to another Insider ring won’t do anything for now. You can get more details in the full post below:

Hello Windows Insiders,

We are performing some upgrades this week to our services that are used to approve and monitor builds from the Development Branch to our Windows Insiders. Once the upgrade is complete, just as we flight the OS through the rings, we will be flighting the service upgrades through the internal rings first. We won’t have any new builds from the Development Branch for you this week, but plan to return to schedule next week.

As part of this upgrade, any changes to the Windows Insider ring settings via Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program will not take effect until the service upgrade has finished. If you are setting up a new device or changing rings, your device will not receive new builds available to that ring until the upgrade is complete.

In the meantime, keep sending us feedback on any issues you run into on the latest Insider Preview builds via Feedback Hub.

As a reminder, the latest Windows 10 Redstone 2 build is the build 14915 that was pushed to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring a week ago. This latest build was not as stable as the previous ones as we reported that it could kill Wifi for some users. We hope that this issue will be fixed in the next Insider build.
