Windows 10 RS 5 build 17723 RS6 build 18204

Windows 10 Fast Ring Insiders can now download and install Redstone 5 build 17723, while Skip Ahead Insiders can test the very first Windows 10 Redstone 6 build (18204).

Both builds bring similar new features and improvements. Microsoft will soon publish two different blog post for each build release. So, without further ado, let’s dive in and see what’s new in these two build.

Windows 10 builds 17723/18204 changelog

  • New Microsoft Edge Group Policies: These new Group Policies allow IT administrators to better manage the Edge browser. They will be able to access and enable or disable full-screen mode, printing, the favorites bar, manage browser extensions, and more.
  • 157 new emojis: Yes, if you’re an emoji fan, you’re definitely enjoy using the new emojis. These include  superheroes, redheads, a softball, a llama, and many more.

  • Time accuracy improvements: The upcoming Windows 10 version offers users the possibility to use new time protocols that eliminate software delay caused by the Windows networking stack.
  • A new Kiosk Setup experience: There is a new access configuration page in Settings that allows administrators to set up their PC as a kiosk or digital sign via an easy-to-follow wizard experience.

Perhaps the most important change that these two builds bring is the AI-backed reboot experience after installing the latest updates. Windows 10 now creates a predictive model that determines when exactly is the right time to restart your device.

[…]  if you have an update pending we’ve updated our reboot logic to use a new system that is more adaptive and proactive. We trained a predictive model that can accurately predict when the right time to restart the device is. Meaning, that we will not only check if you are currently using your device before we restart, but we will also try to predict if you had just left the device to grab a cup of coffee and return shortly after.

We still don’t know how well this new restart system works since Insiders haven’t had too much time to test it. If you noticed anything unusual about this restart system, do let us know in the comments below. For more information about the complete changelog, go to Microsoft’s official webpage.
