We already reported that Preview program for the Windows 10 native apps was rolling out to insiders. In a blog post now Microsoft has made the program official.
Now through the Windows App Preview Program, Insiders in any ring can opt-in to preview individual apps. Insiders can opt-in to previews for the following first-wave of apps:
- Feedback Hub
- Microsoft Photos
- Microsoft Sticky Notes
- Microsoft Tips
- Paint 3D
- Windows Alarms & Clock
- Windows Calculator
- Windows Camera
- Windows Mixed Reality Viewer
- Windows Voice Recorder
To opt-in to a preview for an app just go to the Settings or About page of the app and click the “Join preview” button. If the limit has been met for that app preview for the app you will get a notification on clicking the button and as more slots open up you can join the preview. Additionally, if you need to leave an app preview you can do so by also going to the Settings or About page and clicking the “Leave preview” button. These apps are rolling out previews in the next few days, so keep checking the app Settings/About page!
If you are an Insider who has already opted into Skip Ahead – you don’t need opt-in to preview these apps. We will continue to push the latest app updates to you just like before.
Right now, the Windows App Preview Program is available to Windows Insiders.
