Microsoft is now opening up once again the Skip Ahead option to allow enthusiasts and developers to get early start with the 19H2 development for the next feature update of Windows 10 (version 1909).
The company says that there’s a limited number of sits and once filled the option will be closed. If you’re interested, the time is now to enroll your non-primary machine to this branch of the Windows Insider Program.
How to enroll in Skip Ahead to test Windows 10 19H2 builds
To enroll your device to the Skip Ahead ring using the Settings app, use these steps:
Click on Update & Security.
Click on Windows Insider Program.
Under the “Pick your Insider settings” section, click your current option.
Select the Skip Ahead option.
Once you completed the steps, soon your device will be moved to the PRERELEASE branch for the next version of Windows 10 (version 1909), which is expected to roll out sometime in October 2019.
Initially, builds available in the PRERELEASE and RELEASE will look almost identical, but eventually the build number will jump ahead and things will diverge.
As a reminder, builds available in this branch are not stable, and it’s meant for testers who like to be the first to find issues, provide suggestions, and ideas to help shape the future of Windows.
After the new version of Windows 10 releases to everyone, the “skip ahead” option will go away, and the Fast ring will go back to receiving builds from the PRERELEASE branch just like before.
