Howdy Insiders.

Which Ring(s) are you in? Desktop? Mobile? Fast/Slow/Release? Do you abstain from Insider on some devices but not others?

Why? Why not?

Tell us how you use the Insider program and why...

Note: You may choose multiple options in the poll to reflect multiple devices. Thanks for participating.

Hiya!

Thank you, RumoredNow, for writing a good starting post to help guide the info you want from the rest of us. Now on to answering all that :)

I am in fast ring on Desktop and (very soon again) Mobile.

I have two devices dedicated for just the Windows Insider Program, an Asus X756U (non touch) and a Lumia 950XL.

The rest of my devices (including a SP4) are not in the program because I have had many syncing issues back when I ran Release Previews on anything that was not on fast or slow ring.

I use the insider program to help make Windows better with feedback. I dedicate some time during thursday every week just to test, as well as write feedback, do quests and look at others feedback in the hub. I participate in (and try to keep alive) the official Danish facebook group of insiders and now I am here as well. I am very much looking forward to the new stuff coming to the insider community in june/july :smile:

Thank you for reading.

SP4 Fast, Jump Ahead, 950XL Fast Ring; everything else is production ring to avoid device failure when needed for work. The 950XL has seen WDRT a few times but thankfully on Fiber here so that is really easy to get it back online in just an hour or so.

I'm on the fast ring on all of my Microsoft devices except for Xbox. I like to give Microsoft as much feedback to issues with these builds as much as possible to help expedite these releases. Also hoping that one of these builds finally separates the Edge browser from the operating system in order to compete with Chrome. Mobile insider seems to be a rollercoaster ride when it comes to stability and with every new build I swear that it makes battery usage incrementally worse with every new iteration.

@Jason Angle I'm on fiber also but it still takes me on average 4 hours every time to get everything synced back to my phone after a hard reset. A bulk of that time is usually due to my app library which I don't even let it download until after the last fast ring update installs. Is there a way to get the latest build via tool recovery?

Not that I am tracking, I think you get pushed back down to the latest major build and still have to update the months between fixes even if not on Insider. I don't ever restore from Backups, just from experience the Apps act buggy because some of the settings are not backwards compatible to non-insider ring builds. Get to the current ring, remove all the bloatapps I don't use that they put on there anyways. Then I go the Store Library and select my apps and then set it down. It sounds like it would take longer but the times I have done it resulted in a much quicker turnaround doing it manually. Granted most of my stuff is sync'd on Onedrive including Music.
