Windows, Xbox, and Office all have their own Insider programs, and now Microsoft is adding another to the mix.
As first spotted by Microsoft watcher WalkingCat earlier this week, Microsoft has launched a sign-up page to become a Microsoft 365 Insider. According to the page, this program is targeted at people working in IT who want to keep up with the latest in enterprise changes across Windows, Office, and more. From the page:
We know that all of you who work in IT want to help us create what's next and so, we are announcing a new initiative for tech heroes like you. If you're all in on Windows and Office and are looking to speed up your digital transformation even more, we invite you to join our new Microsoft 365 Insider Program.
By signing up for this program, you will be getting all your enterprise news, events and community in one place as well as a clear path into what's next for collaboration, productivity and security.
In the coming months, we'll be looking to your help to create this program to make you even more successful in your career and help make your business more competitive.
ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley dug into things a little further, speaking with Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar. According to Sarkar, the Microsoft 365 Insider program is "an evolution of the Windows Insider Program for Business."
The Windows and Office Insider programs will continue to run independently for now, and the Microsoft 365 Program will be run in partnership with the Office Insiders program. In the future, Sarkar told ZDNet, Microsoft plans to add test builds for Intune to the mix with Microsoft 365 Insiders.
