Few days ago, Microsoft has made announcement of 20H1 insider channel based on the release of 19H1 build. Now, first build of 20H1 update channel is released and this is for members in Fast Ring and Skip Ahead.

Windows 10 20H1

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18885 has some new features for the upcoming release of Windows.

IMPORTANT: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, these builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If you take this flight, you won’t be able to switch Slow or Release Preview rings without doing a clean-install on your PC. If you wish to remain on 19H1, please change your ring settings via Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program *before* taking this flight. See this blog post for details.

Also, if you have moved ahead with this build, then you will not be able to switch back to slow ring. Doing to will be only possible after performing clean format. So proceed with precaution.

How to Install ?

If you have earlier chosen to Skip Ahead or Fast Ring, this build should be in the Update page as usual. If you are on Build 18362.53 and were unable to update to Build 18875 will need to install Build 18362.86 (KB4497093) FIRST before being able to receive today’s build.
