Microsoft to release Windows 10 January preview next week

Microsoft Operating System Group chief, Terry Myerson, during Windows 10 event

Microsoft Operating System Group chief, Terry Myerson, took the stage today during the Windows 10 press event at the company’s headquarters in Redmond Washington to show all the new improvements and changes for the upcoming version of the operating system.

Although, we all were waiting for Microsoft to announced the immediate release of the new Windows 10 build, the company said that it will be releasing the January preview build for Windows Insiders next week (and the company did not mention which day it will be). As we knew from earlier, the new build of Windows 10 will be available via Windows Update and via ISO file download.

The next build of Windows 10 will expand the languages available from four to twenty-five. The software maker also showed off an early version of Windows 10 for mobile devices (tablets under 8-inches and phones), and announced that Windows Insiders will be able to download the first preview in February as I reported previously.
