The next major Windows 10 update (19H1 build 1903) will be finalized and fine-tuned for global availability in April. This means that new innovations and experiments are planned for 19H2 this year.

Developers who would like to test the latest (experimental) version of Windows 10 for their applications, can now choose to pass the final phase of 19H1. Version 19H2 will be the version where all the latest features will appear in the next six months.

To make this possible, you need to go to Settings, Update and Security and choose Windows Insider Program. There you can change the Insider settings to Skip Ahead to get started with the next big Windows 10 update that will appear at the end of 2019. You have to be a Windows Insider for this.

Limited number

Once you have chosen the function, you will first receive a number of Windows 10 19H1 builds. Microsoft is working intensively on the first 19H2 build. As soon as it is available, you will automatically be upgraded to the latest version and you will keep a close eye on the latest developments.

Skip Ahead is only available to a limited extent according to Microsoft. Later, the option will be rolled out more widely to other Windows Insiders who want to participate in the beta test.

It is important to emphasise that these are always experimental builds that can contain errors. Only do this on Windows 10 machines that are specifically used for testing or development purposes. Do not turn on the Windows Insider program on your daily device unless you are very adventurous.
