Microsoft recently released the new Windows 10 build 14931 to Insiders on the Fast Ring. The update mainly focuses on app updates but also brings one new feature: native support for USB Audio 2.0 with an inbox class driver.

According to Microsoft, this is the very first version of the inbox class driver, therefore not all features are supported. For now, Insiders can only playback; recording and other features will be introduced in future Windows 10 builds.

Here’s what Microsoft said about adding native USB Audio 2.0 support with the inbox class driver:

“We now have native support for USB Audio 2.0 devices with an inbox class driver! This is an early version of the driver that does not have all features enabled, for e.g.: only playback (render) is supported with this version. Recording (capture) support is scheduled to arrive in later iterations. We encourage you to play with the driver and let us know what you think (using the Feedback app). If you already have third party drivers for your USB Audio 2.0 device installed.”

Microsoft also advises users who have third party drivers for their USB Audio 2.0 devices to switch to the inbox class driver. For those who don’t know how to do that, Microsoft prepared a simple tutorial which you can check out on this page.

Have you tried the new driver yet? In case you have, let us know about your impressions in the comments. Also, don’t forget to submit your feedback to Microsoft, so the company can deliver even better product in the future.
