Windows Insiders can’t test Redstone 4 using the Skip Ahead feature
This might just be the best time to become a Windows Insider. Microsoft is busy stuffing in some last minute features and novelties to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which is also known as Redstone 3. The company is expected to include many surprises in the upcoming builds. At the same time, these build releases should be more stable than ever.
Skip Ahead to Redstone 4
A week ago, Microsoft introduced the option to bypass any future Fall Creators Update builds and skip ahead to the Redstone 4 branch. In case you were all worked up and excited about this and you planned to use this feature, we have some bad news for you: it’s not going to happen.
The offer is off the table
Microsoft needs enough Insiders testing the Fall Creators Update, and for this reason, the company placed an internal limit on the number of users who can take advantage of the Skip Ahead option.
Previously you could go and choose the option “Skip ahead to the next Windows release” on the Windows Insider Program settings screen. In case you want to do this now, you will be greeted with a message saying that “Skip ahead is now closed.”
All in all, this is not such a big deal because we definitely won’t be seeing significant changes to the Redstone 4 branch after the Fall Creators Update is launched. Anyway, all Windows Insiders will have receive the same builds by then, so the news is not that tragic.
