It’s been almost two weeks now since a prerelease Windows 10 version went live in the Dev Channel. But that’s set to change with the expected release of Windows 10 build 20220.127.116.11 this week.
Microsoft pushed Windows 10 insider preview build 20161 to the Dev Channel on July 1, 2020. This version introduced a whole bunch of new features, most notably, a redesigned Start menu.
Nothing has arrived in the Dev Channel since. But if you’re one of the privileged Windows 10 earliest code testers, something’s coming up any time now.
Windows 10 build 2018.104.22.168 coming this week
According to Twitter user WZor, the next version of Windows 10 right from Microsoft’s Active Development Branch arrives in the Dev Channel any time this week.
Apart from that, WZor posted a screenshot showing Microsoft Store listings of Local Experience Packs (LXPs). These listings include applications associated with Windows 10 build 2022.214.171.124.

It appears that the LXPs are ready for download from the Store.
One of the most beautiful things about them is that they deliver translations to the user before feature updates arrive.
Features not tied to any upcoming OS
Details of what specific features Windows 10 insider preview build 20188.8.131.52 brings haven’t yet come to light. But as Microsoft announced already, any improvements or new features arriving in the Dev Channel don’t necessarily belong to a particular upcoming Windows 10 release.
In addition, Microsoft recently restructured the windows insider program, giving a new meaning and purpose to its beta-testing platforms. As such, the focus is now on quality rather than the frequency with which each insider Channel receives an update.
