New Windows 10 Builds could be released this week, says Microsoft’s Gabe Aul

It’s not even been a whole week, since Microsoft launched the last build of Windows 10.

Windows 10 Build 10565 Tab Previews

Build 10576 was rolled out to the Fast Ring of the Windows Insider Program on October 30th.

But insiders are already screaming for a new build of the operating system. One such user decided to ping
Microsoft’s Gabe Aul, who has been an integral part of the development, on Twitter. This is what the Redmond company’s employee said:

We have a couple of builds that are looking good in internal rings. It’s possible we’ll see them later this week to Fast.

That’s builds, in the plural. So we could be seeing more than one new build rolling out this week. But it is also likely that he could have meant one build for Windows PCs, and one for Windows Mobile devices. It is possible given that Microsoft created a false hype about something big, which only turned out to be a simultaneous roll out of a new build for both platforms.

With the highly launch of Windows 10 Threshold 2 or Fall Update, whatever you want to call it, just a week away, this new upcoming build could be the one, which will be released as the first major update for the new operating system.

We already know, thanks to an official announcement from another Microsoft employee, that the Redmond company will be releasing the Fall Update for Windows 10 on November 10th. Additionally, Microsoft will finally be rolling out support for its digital personal assistant, Cortana, in India.

The good news is that the update will probably add support for the new Skype for Windows 10 Messaging app, the new features in Microsoft Edge which includes support for Tab Preview, Syncing Favorites, Reading list, Cortana support for PDFs in Edge, Media Casting in Edge The latest preview builds also include some new icons, Colored Title Bars and a much better looking Start Menu context menu, so we might see them in the Threshold 2 update as well.

Back to the main story here, Gabe Aul did not give an ETA as to when the new builds of Windows 10, but hinted they could arrive later this week. It will probably be released on Friday, after some last minute ironing out of any bugs. But the big question is, should Microsoft roll out the big Fall update to all users after barely testing it for a few days? I don’t think that it is a very sensible move.
