All Windows 10 users can use the Windows Feedback app, Windows Insiders get extra features

All Windows 10 users will now have access to the Windows Feedback app, allowing anyone using Microsoft's operating system to give their opinions that will be sent to the Windows development team. However, members of the Windows Insider program will be able to access features in the app that won't be available to the general public.

Microsoft's Windows Insider head Gabriel Aul stated:

"We have decided to include the Windows Feedback app in the released version of Windows 10 for all our customers. This was a very popular Windows Insider suggestion – one of our top 10 upvotes. At the same time, we wanted to continue giving our Windows Insiders an exclusive and premium experience when it comes to sending us feedback."

Anyone with Windows 10 can use the Windows Feedback app to see any feedback posts filed by the general public. They can also post new feedback posts, upvote existing feedback and search for posts, along with answering mini-surveys targeted for the general public. Windows Insiders will be able to do the same, except that their posts and surveys in their app will be just for those members. In addition, Windows Insiders can take a screenshot, can filter any feedback from previous preview builds and reproduce a problem in select categories.

Aul added that older feedback that was offered early in the Windows 10 testing has now been cleared out of the app, although it is still stored in Microsoft's internal tools. Aul stated:

"We'll get better at aging out feedback with future enhancements to our app, but for now we want to clear the deck, so that the newest, most relevant feedback is finding its way to the top of the search results that you see in the Feedback app."
