Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10162: Welcome to the faster Fast Ring



5 Million People around the globe are now part of the Windows Insider Preview and there were some tough days and weeks when we had to wait a few weeks until a new Build of Windows 10 arrived, but these times are gone. Microsoft has released Windows 10 Build 10158 in this week, right after this version Build 10159 followed now if you start up the settings app and hit the check for updates button there will be another Build available to download – Build 10162. That might be a reason why Gabriel Aul has titled the article about the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build like this: “Welcome to the faster Fast ring”

Windows 10 is now in such an advanced state that almost every Build which the company is now testing internally fulfills the criteria which is needed to go public. Gabriel Aul says the following about the release of the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build at the Windows Blog:

We’re at the point in the development of Windows 10 where nearly every build is getting out to our internal rings, and passing the criteria for release to Windows Insiders.

Build 10162 is another Build in which Microsoft is dispensing on new features but is concentrating on bug fixes and making the operating system an as smooth as possible experience, that is also the reason why new Builds are now released in a far shorter time intervals because they do not have to implement new features like Cortana for example and 99% of the design is finished as well.

This is another Build without a list of Known Issues but also a Build without a list of new features and therefor you are safe to install this Build on your PC. Gabriel Aul is also saying that they have not forgotten about the Slow Ring and that 10162 is a good candidate to be released to the Slow Ring in a few days.


So start your Settings App go to Update & Recovery –> Windows Update and check if there are any new updates available for your Windows 10 PC. It should then display Windows 10 Build 10162 though it can take some time until the new Build is available for all PC’s out there.
We will of course keep you updated about the latest Windows 10 Build and tell you if there are any visible changes or not. So stay tuned for more information and drop me comment below with your opinion on this faster Fast Ring.
