Microsoft says Windows 10 anniversary Update is almost ready

Windows 10 logoThe Windows 10 Anniversary Update is projected to land on August 2, and the preview builds that Microsoft is rolling out these days are specifically supposed to refine performance and fix the latest bugs before the public launch.

And according to Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider program, we’re getting there quite fast, and this is one of the reasons new builds are shipped at a faster cadence than before.

There’s still no release candidate just yet, and Microsoft is trying to fix all reported issues before compiling one, so a few more builds are still expected before the grand unveiling on August 2. Dona calls for insiders to keep sending feedback now at the very last minute, before the public launch, in order to help the company provide the most stable and reliable version of the Anniversary Update to retail users.

“Team, we’re getting down to the wire for the Anniversary Update release. Please install this build and try things differently than usual this weekend. We still have our quests published in Feedback Hub. We’re going to be doing these this weekend, so if you do as well, please send us feedback on them,” she says.

Windows insiders will be the first to get the final build of the Anniversary Update, but for the moment, it’s not yet known which one will be marked as RTM and when it could see daylight.

The launch of Anniversary Update will happen on August 2 and will take place for both PCs and mobile phones. Also known as the first wave of Redstone, or Redstone 1, the Anniversary Update will come with a plethora of enhancements, including a new Start menu, redesigned Action Center, significantly improved Cortana, and so much more.

PCs will also get browser extension support for Edge, with several extensions already available for download in the store for Windows insiders.
