Hello Windows Insiders, today we are announcing Windows 10 version 20H2 as the next feature update for Windows 10. The 20H2 feature update will be a scoped set of features and include the new Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. As part of today’s announcement, we’re also releasing 20H2 Build 19042.330 to the Beta Channel (Slow ring). This build includes the following fixes from KB4557957 as well as the new Microsoft Edge. After updating to today’s build, Microsoft Edge will be updated to the new Microsoft Edge based on Chromium.
We are releasing Build 19042.330 to Insiders in the Beta Channel via our “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders will need to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and choose to download and install 20H2. Once an Insider updates their PC to 20H2, they will continue to automatically receive new 20H2 updates through Windows Update using our using servicing technology (like the monthly update process). Over time, more new features and improvements will be delivered through this process.
For 19H2, we released bits to some Insiders with features turned off and released bits to some Insiders with featured turned on. In response to Insider feedback, we are not doing that for 20H2. Insiders who choose to download and install 20H2 on their PC will get new 20H2 features as they are delivered. Insiders in the Beta Channel who don’t choose to download and install 20H2 won’t see new features.
For all the details on the 20H2 release – check out John Cable’s blog post.
