Microsoft’s Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing, and Delivery, John Cable, announced on the Windows Blog the new update plans for future releases on Windows 10.

And those plans started with the release of the Windows 10 20H2 for the Insiders in the Beta Channel, the former Slow ring.

What is new about Windows 10 20H2?

First of all, Microsoft cleared out the numerical naming scheme and decided on the year and period version.

So if this is the Windows 10 20H2 build, it’s because it’s going to be released for the general public in this year’s second half.

However, in a small note, they specified that they will still use a friendly name, such as the May 2020 Update, in communication with consumers.

As for the new features of the Windows 10 20H2, Cable was pretty brief:

Windows 10, version 20H2 will offer a scoped set of features to improve performance and enhance quality.

It will also be the first version of Windows 10 to include the new Microsoft Edge, based on Chromium.

In a nutshell, that means that this is a minor release in the style resembling a cumulative upgrade rather than a major one. However, things can still change until the fall release.

It’s worth mentioning that the new build 20H2 Build 19042.330 for the insiders, also includes fixes from the KB4557957 update.

Windows 10 20H2 will install quicker

Anyone running the May 2020 Update and updating to Windows 10, version 20H2 will have a faster installation experience because the update will install like a monthly update

, mentioned Cable in the blog post.

However, if you own an older build, you will wait longer, just like for a major update.

The Microsoft official added that the main focus of the 20H2 feature update will be on improved performance and quality, rather than on a large number of brand-new features.

How can I install the new Windows 10 20H2 update?

Windows 10 20H2 is available only for Insiders who joined the Beta Channel and look for the update in Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.

Once you download and install it, you will get regular 20H2 updates via Windows Update.
