    Phone Insider app for Windows 10 Preview, renamed to Windows Insider


    Windows 10 for phones is on the way, at least in preview form. Tonight, Microsoft began laying more groundwork for the Technical Preview by updating their Phone Insider app. Originally found on the Store a few weeks ago, the Insider program will let people download early builds of Windows 10 to their phones before general release.
    The major change to the app is the name to Windows Insider, matching the name of the desktop preview program. Besides the previous domain account support, there is also the ability to now log in the Insider service using your Microsoft Account.



    Users can now successfully log into the Windows Insider application whereas before there was no way to do so. However, they will be greeted with a 'no builds found' screen along with some helpful hints to make sure they are registered and set up to participate. From the app description:

    "The Windows Insider application provides registered Insiders the ability to receive pre-release OS updates on their phone, directly from Microsoft. For more information about registering and becoming a Windows Insider visit http://insider.windows.com."

    There is no indication that Microsoft will launch the Windows 10 preview for phones this week, but apparently they are getting things ready for the planned February launch.

    If you have not downloaded the Windows Insider app for your Windows Phone, you can do so now. Windows Central will, of course, keep you posted when the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones goes live.



    Thanks, everyone, for the tips!

    Thanks!

    I also found out about it this morning. I need to start backing up my 1520.
    @Brink , do you by any chance have a tutorial for backing up the OS on Lumia 1520 (or any Lumia Phone)? You know, like a recovery image if the tech preview didn't work out.

    That's ok. You and I (and the rest of Lumia users here) will have to do it (backing up) before jumping on to Windows 10 for phones. I just thought you have a plan laid out already.
