The Windows Insider program is integral to Microsoft’s ability to freshen up Windows 10 with bi-annual feature updates, the most recent of which was the May 2020 update. Without the program, pushing out major updates twice a year would be a bit ambitious (too many bugs pass through as it is). However, participating in the program has not always been straightforward, but that is about to change.

Well, somewhat, anyway. In part to make things less confusing, Microsoft is transitioning away from “Rings” to “Channels” with clearer language on what each of the tiers entails. This also involves a change in the way updates are pushed out.
