Microsoft has just released its newest Windows 10 Build, number 10166, as it gets ever close to the mid-July deadline for a gold release of code to go to OEMs and the July 29 release of Windows 10 for the public.
The company’s ‘Blogging Windows’ blogger, Gabe Aul, said in a blog post that “this build is all about bug fixing and fit-and-finish.”
Aul asks Build 10166 users to ‘be sure to keep using the Windows Feedback app to send us feedback on any problems you’re hitting to help us make sure Windows 10 is awesome when we release it on July 29th!’
The company also mentioned the ability for its customers using Windows 10 in the Seattle area of the US, who can purchase ‘paid Wi-Fi through the Windows Store via the Microsoft Wi-Fi app’, and because you’ll also see ‘Buy Wi-Fi from Windows Store’ in your list of networks when clicking on the network icon on the lower right in the Taskbar.
You’ll be able to pay with a credit or debit card, a Microsoft Gift Card or with PayPal, and soon after the testing phase it will be opened up to the rest of the US. No word as yet if or when Australians will get access to this nifty sounding service - or what prices might be.
Developers using the Windows 10 SDK also get an updated preview release build, with’s Aul penultimate statement urging those on older Windows 10 builds that ’now is definitely the time to upgrade to the most current build’, which can be updated from Windows Update ‘today’ or via ISOs from the Windows Insider Program Website.
Aul ends by thanking all testers for their ‘terrific feedback’ and promises ‘we’re getting close to release now and the whole team here is working hard and incredibly excited!’
