New names for Office Insider levels on Windows desktop

Office

Microsoft Office team is simplifying the update model for Office Insiders on Windows Desktop.

As part of this effort, the name of the Office Insider levels, currently called Insider Fast and Insider Slow, will change to Insider and Monthly Channel (Targeted) respectively.

As an Office Insider, you don’t need to take any action. You’ll continue to receive Fast or Slow updates as you are getting today, on the same schedule. The only thing changing for Office Insiders is the name of the levels.
