The program was earlier only accessible to developers but later it was available to all users and give feedback for areas such as developing Windows apps and games for PCs, tablets and phones, developing apps for Microsoft HoloLens and/or developing devices with IoT core.


The registered users can be a part of a community through an easy to use app for their PC or mobile or even both. There were 1.5 million people who registered as part of the Windows Insider Program by the end of 2014. The registration is still open as future updates will continue to incorporate users’ feedback.


In a video titled Windows Insider Program, Microsoft personnel share how helpful the program has been to create a more meaningful product.
