Microsoft's Joe Belfiore shared on Twitter than an Insider program for Xiaomi handsets will commence in China over the coming weeks.
Microsoft rolled out a Windows 10 Mobile ROM to the Mi 4 earlier this year following an "experimental program" to test the upcoming OS on Xiaomi hardware. Xiaomi was taking registrations for the beta program in May that was limited to Beijing, and it now looks like that program will be expanded to cover the entire country:
We intend to start our insider program in China with Xiaomi phones in the next few weeks... The software is running very nicely on these!— joebelfiore (@joebelfiore) July 30, 2015
Microsoft's intention with the initiative is to get direct feedback from customers in China, with the software maker picking Xiaomi for its vocal customer base.
We'll know more details regarding the program over the coming weeks. Who wants to see this come to India and other countries where Xiaomi has a strong userbase?
