Dona Sarkar: Preview builds will continue after the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update
On August 2nd, 2016, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will roll out to the public, bringing numerous changes with it; from new experiences to improved accessibility. Despite a laundry list of new features, some users still have a bit of trepidation about the new update, but not about bugs or even hardware configuration requirements but transitioning. The number one question we’ve received from Windows Insiders is: what happens to Preview builds after the Anniversary Update?
Today, we have an answer. On Twitter, Dona Sarkar, Head of the Windows Insider program, replied to an Insider stating that builds will continue post-Anniversary Update:
@Yogesh_Rya we will definitely keep pushing builds post-anniversary update. This system seems to work pretty well.

This is good news for Insiders who want to continue to shape Windows 10 – and it seems that Microsoft is enjoying it too, as Dona stated that the “system seems to work pretty well.” The current builds are for the Redstone 1 branch, and it won’t be too long before builds for Redstone 2 begin rolling their way on to PCs, Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox’s.
As the date for the release nears, we’ll be bringing you more coverage of the update, with in-depth information and run-downs of what to expect. Stay tuned.Further reading: Microsoft, Redstone, Redstone 2, Windows 10, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows 10 Mobile
