On the heels of Wednesday's Windows 10 event, Microsoft has released a new preview build of the operating system. Available now to members of the Windows Insider Program, build 9926 includes some—but not all—of the features demoed earlier this week. Here's a video preview presented by Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's OS chief:
In build 9926, users can look forward to Cortana integration, a revamped Start menu (which showcases the Continuum capability we saw in September), a new Windows Store, better support for wireless audio and video devices, some tweaks based on user feedback, and several new-and-improved apps, including Settings, Photos, Maps, and Xbox. Microsoft says it's working hard to get the rest of the features we saw this week ready for public consumption.
The new build is being pushed out to "both 'Fast' and 'Slow' rings simultaneously," Microsoft says, so current testers will get it regardless of the update frequency they've chosen. The new build should also be available as an ISO download for new members of the Windows Insider Program.
