Microsoft announces all-new Windows 10 20H2 build for Windows Insiders, Here is how to download it

With the Windows 10 May 2020 2004 version done and dusted, Microsoft has now moved on to its next Windows 10 build. The build which is internally called Windows 10 20H2 will be released to all Windows 10 PC/laptop users who have updated to May 2020 aka Windows 2004 in the fall of 2020.

First and foremost, Microsoft calls this new release “version 20H2” and has announced the release of the first Windows 10 20H2 Insider Build 19042.330 version to Windows Insiders via the new Beta Channel. 20H2 abbreviation means that Microsoft will release Windows 10 20H2 Insider Build 19042.330 version in the second half of 2020.

What’s new in the Windows 10 20H2 Insider Build 19042.330 version

The new Windows 10 20H2 Insider Build 19042.330 version isn’t a major release like the May 2020 2004 update but a smaller set of improvements similar to the November 2019 Update.  One major highlight of 20H2 is it will come with the new Microsoft Edge out of the box. It will also have cumulative fixes for all the bugs in the Windows 10 2004 version.

Windows 10 version 20H2 will only be available in the Slow ring, now called Beta channel for users enrolled in the Windows Insider program. If you’re a part of the Windows Insider Program, you can go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Here, you will find the option to download Windows 10 20H2 Preview.

Microsoft says that this step is required only the first time. Future Windows 10 20H2 updates will be pushed automatically to devices. “Once an Insider updates their PC to 20H2, they will continue to automatically receive new 20H2 updates through Windows Update using our using servicing technology (like the monthly update process). Over time, more new features and improvements will be delivered through this process,” Microsoft stated.
