Windows 10 Insider Preview build history tracker

The Windows 10 Insider Preview build history guide helps you to track the latest testing pre-releases of the operating system that Microsoft makes available for PC.

UPDATED 1/21: As part of the Windows 10 development, Microsoft has the Windows Insider Program, a testing program that allows developers, businesses, and enthusiasts to access early builds of the operating system to test new features and changes, and validate software and drivers before deployments. In this guide, you can track the history of every Windows 10 Insider Preview build for PC, including information about their release date, changelog summary, build number, and more.

The program includes three readiness levels (also known as channels). The Dev Channel (formerly Fast ring) is for highly technical users since builds are rough and contain code that is still under heavy development. Usually, these builds are not stable, you’ll come across errors and problems, and you may have to use workarounds to fix problems that may affect your experience.

Also, previews in this channel are not attached to any specific release of Windows 10, which means that changes will be integrated into future releases when they’re ready, and not necessarily in the next feature update. Furthermore, when some improvements are ready, they could arrive as a build update or servicing release.

The Beta Channel (formerly Slow ring) is for anyone who wants to test upcoming features or needs to validate apps and deployments. Previews in this channel are stable, but you may still run into issues. Also, features included in this channel are expected to ship with the next release of Windows 10.

Finally, the Release Preview Channel (formerly Release Preview ring) offers the final build of the next version of Windows 10 before it’s available to the public, with advanced quality updates and certain key features.

If you have a device enrolled in any of these channels, you can use this guide to track the history of every Windows 10 Insider Preview build.

Windows 10 21H1 (21H2) Insider Preview build history

Windows 10 21H1 is the eleventh feature update expected to arrive sometime in 2021. Some of the features and changes planned for this new version are already available through the Dev Channel. However, since builds in the Dev Channel are not tied to any specific release, it’s unclear what features the next release will include.

Below you’ll find the history of the Windows Insider Preview builds released in the Dev Channel. The latest version available for testers is Windows 10 build 21296.

Check out all the features and changes coming to Windows 10 21H1.

Although Microsoft hasn’t shared any official details, it’s expected that the company will skip the 21H1 update schedule and release version 21H2 during the fall of 2021 instead.
