  • Is the Insider program available to the public yet? I keep searching for the Hub app but it never shows up in the Updates.
  • Not sure, but I have noticed that the option to invite people has gone.
  • They're not accepting new members at the moment it seems like.
  • The public can/will be able to submit feedback but only enrolled people can get the Preview Builds, like Jez says they aren't accepting new members. When the Insider Program name came about for Xbox MS did say at the time it didn't mean builds will be available to all
  • 3D Builder can be added to the download queue, but triggers an "installation stopped" error right away without ever downloading.
    ​Skype Preview is listed in Ready to Install but doesn't even get added to the download queue when selected.
    ​Does anyone else experience the same thing or is it just me ?
  • Not just you, don't think they're 100% ready yet.
  • Yes yes I have the 3d builder error my other xbox doesn't though!
  • Cool updates are good
