    New Phone Insider app for Windows 10 preview for Phones?


    Unfortunately, at the moment, there's no way to sign into the app, which would suggest that it's not ready for the public to fully check out.

    Microsoft already has a Preview for Developers app for Windows Phone 8.1 that allows users to download new builds of the OS before they are made available to wireless carriers. This new app would seem, at first glance, to be something different. However, we stress that Microsoft has yet to officially state they are launching a preview version of Windows 10 for smartphones. So take this speculation (and everyone else's) with a grain of salt.

    Hi Chirag,

    I would like to inform that you can install the Windows 10 Insider Preview and not the official Windows 10 in Lumia 920. To get the Windows 10 Insider Preview, follow the steps provided below:

    1. Download the Insider Preview App from Windows Store.

    2. Register for Insider Preview.

    3. Restart the device.

    4. Check for phone updates and you will be able to install the Windows 10 Insider Preview.

    Hope the information provided is helpful. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    New Phone Insider app for Windows 10 preview for Phones?

    Windows 10 mobile update for lumia X20 models.

    Nope there will not be a second wave or any upgrade for non supported phones.

    That is already been said here and on other places at the community, the micrisoft blogs and on many tech related "news" websites.

    And this is the statement from Microsoft:

    Hello Windows Insiders!

    Earlier this year when we launched Windows 10 Mobile, we
    announced a series of changes
    to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Program, including details of our launch of Windows 10 Mobile as well as changes to the

    supported Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview devices
    .

    With the upcoming release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the Release Preview ring is moving to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14393. This change will have some impact on unsupported devices:

    • As stated before, unsupported devices will not receive any builds or updates newer than 10586.x
    • Unsupported devices will not be able to select any Windows Insider Preview rings in the Windows Insider app
    • Updates to apps and services may not be available for unsupported devices and in some cases may limit certain experiences
    Unsupported devices can still use the
    Windows Device Recovery Tool
    to recover to Windows Phone 8.1, but will not have the option to return to Windows 10 Mobile.

    As always, we appreciate our Insiders and thank you for your participation in the Windows Insider Program.

    Sincerely,

    Your Windows Insider Team

    @WindowsInsider

    Thanks, Shawn. *Smile

    Do you or anyone see this app in the Phone Store? Nothing there that I see.

    Scrolling down on the page linked above “Download Phone Insider from the Windows Phone Store”, what’s this under “App requires”? Are those screen resolutions? The Lumia 1520 is Full HD (1920 x 1080).

    HD720P (720x1280)
    WVGA (480x800)
    WXGA (768x1280)

    Scrolling down a little farther there’s “Download and install manually” to side load a/the app:

    an SD card? | Windows Phone How-to (United States)


    Anyone have luck there?

    Looking forward to WP10, though!

    Hey Tony,

    I don't think it'll be available in the Store until the 21st.

    I had to click on the "Install" button from below to have an email sent that I could open on my phone to click on the install link.

    Phone Insider | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    It's currently installed on my phone, but only Microsoft employees are able to sign in to the app for now. It should be fully functional on the 21st. *Smile

    Thanks much for posting that, Shawn. *Smile

    I opened your link with my phone and was able to install it with no email involved.

    I'll wait patiently until the 21st....
