Need insight on how your applications will perform with the next release of Windows 10—prior to it being available in market? Don't want to maintain an environment to validate new Windows features? Want to run your validation tests against Windows Insider Program builds in our Azure environment?

Feature update validation on Update Staging Lab can help you achieve all these and more!

Check out the step-by-step outline below to find out how to access this new capability in the Update Staging Lab service. (Not yet taking advantage of Update Staging Lab? Sign up here to join the preview.)

To get started with feature update validation in Update Staging Lab, upload your applications (and related files) through the self-service onboarding portal. As you fill out the Test details:

  1. Select Feature Update as your OS update type:

  2. Choose the Windows Insider Channel against which you want your application validated. (We currently support the Insider Beta Channel.)

  3. Select an in-market release of Windows 10 as the baseline for your test (and resulting insights!) and provide the other details required to onboard your package successfully.

  4. To view the results and insights from the validation of your application against pre-release Windows 10 feature updates, visit Feature Updates Test Results.


We look forward to hearing your comments/feedback on this new feature as we enhance and evolve our service to meet your validation needs. You can also email us at USLPreview@microsoft.com.
