Starting this week, Microsoft will be allowing users to test preview versions of inbox apps such as Camera, Photos, Alarm and Clock, Feedback Hub, Tips, Mail and Calendar, and many more. The preview program is being branded as Windows App Preview and can be joined by anyone irrespective of their insider status. 

Currently, preview releases of apps are usually released for Fast Ring Insiders and then cascaded to the Slow Ring followed by the Release Preview Ring and finally to Production builds. By opening up the inbox apps for preview, Microsoft aims to address that demographic, which prefers a stable OS base but is open to trying out new app features. It not clear at this point what sort of feature parity will be there between Windows App Previews and the previews released for Insiders as the latter often incorporate new API functionality usually found in newer OS builds. 

Opting in to Windows App Previews is completely optional. App previews should enable Microsoft to gather more feedback and it is less risky for the user too. Microsoft is expected to share new information about this in a blog post soon and we'll update this article as soon as the post is live.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
