Difference Between Insider Channels
During the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft launched Windows Insider Program. Right now, Microsoft rolls out the Windows updates in three separate channels. The channels include Dev Channel, Beta Channel, and Release Preview Channel.
Here’s what Microsoft says about each channel in Windows Insider Program:
Dev Channel: Ideal for highly technical users. Be the first to access the latest Windows 11 builds earliest in the development cycle with the newest code. There will be some rough edges and low stability.
Beta Channel: Ideal for early adopters. These Windows 11 builds will be more reliable than builds from our Dev Channel, with updates validated by Microsoft. Your feedback has the greatest impact here.
Release Preview Channel: Ideal if you want to preview fixes and certain key features, plus get optional access to the next version of Windows 10 before it’s generally available to the World. This channel is also recommended for commercial use.
The latest build of Windows 11 allows you to switch from Dev to Beta channel or vice versa. Microsoft hasn’t launched any Windows 11 build to the Release Preview Channel as of now.
