If you’re familiar with the Windows 10 Insider program, you probably know that Microsoft split it into two rings, Fast ring (for users who want to get updates more frequently, but usually more buggy ones), and Slow ring (updates are released less frequently, but are more stable). But now, the company introduced a new ring, called the Release Preview ring for Windows 10 Preview.

The new ring has been introduced yesterday, along with the new 10586.107 build for Windows 10 Mobile Preview, and it will be available to both Mobile and PC users of Windows 10 Preview.

Release Preview ring users to receive more updates

The Release Preview build is aimed to users who want to receive updates just before they reach the Current Branch of Windows 10. Insiders on the Release Preview ring will not only receive new builds, but also app updates, and new drivers for Windows 10.

Here’s how Microsoft explains its Windows 10 Preview rings:

  • Fast – Best for Insiders who enjoy being the first to get access to builds and feature updates, with some risk to their devices in order to identify issues, and provide suggestions and ideas to make Windows software and devices great.
  • Slow – Best for Insiders who enjoy getting early access to builds and feature updates, with less risk to their devices, and still want to provide feedback to make Windows software and devices great.
  • Release Preview – Best for Insiders who enjoy getting early access to updates for the Current Branch, Microsoft applications, and drivers, with minimal risk to their devices, and still want to provide feedback to make Windows devices great.

If you decide to join the third ring of Windows 10 Preview, let us know about your experience, in the comments. You can also tell us about the issues you encountered while using the Release Preview ring, so we can inform other users, and look for the possible solutions, as well.
