What you need to know

  • Microsoft has started to test its Windows 10 19H2 rollout plan with Release Preview Insiders.
  • Build 18363.327 is available for around 10 percent of Release Preview users.
  • This covers the "seeker" experience, meaning you'll have to check for the update manually.

Microsoft started testing its throttled rollout plan for the Windows 10 19H2 update with Insiders on the Release Preview ring today. Because this is meant to test Microsoft staged rollout process, the update is only available to around 10 percent of Release Preview Insiders. For those who have it available, you'll be updated to 19H2 build 18363.327.

Importantly, the rollout for Release Preview is only available for "seekers." Those who Microsoft has chosen will have to manually check for the update via Windows Update in order to install it. If you check for an update and see Windows 10, version 1909, is available, then you'll be able to install it from there.

Microsoft notes that the Release Preview build doesn't include all of the features that have been available to Slow ring Insiders thus far. For that reason, those who are already on the Slow ring won't be able to switch to the Release Preview ring. Microsoft says it will let Insiders know when they can safely make the switch.

Windows 10 19H2 is the next feature update that is expected to release this fall. Rather than a major update packed with new features, 19H2 is expected to be a smaller release with 20H1, the version currently in testing with Fast ring Insiders and expected to launch next spring, designated as the next major update.

That's not to say there aren't notable changes coming down the line. You can check out our full rundown of the changelog so far for more.
