Microsoft launches the Release Preview Channel with Windows 10 version 22H2

Windows 10 Build 19045.1865, version 22H2 of Windows 10, is the first preview build made available by Microsoft (KB5015878). On the Release Preview Channel, the update is being rolled out to commercial devices.

The automatic offer of Windows 10, version 22H2, as an optional update will be made to commercial devices that have been set up for the Release Preview Channel via the Windows Insider Program Settings page or via the Windows Update for Business policy, whether through Microsoft Intune or Group Policy. Microsoft stated in a blog post that version 22H2 of Windows 10 is now accessible through the Azure Marketplace and Windows Server Update Service.

The new features included in the Windows 10 22H2 upgrade, however, have not been described by Microsoft. We will soon learn everything about them, though. Microsoft is currently distributing the update to Insiders on the Release Preview Channel using Windows Update’s “seeker” experience. To put it another way, Insiders who are part of the Release Preview Channel can opt to download and install Windows 10, version 22H2, by going to Settings and Windows Update.

Notably, Insiders who update to Windows 10 version 22H2 will still receive new servicing updates via Windows Update.

As of 2025, when Windows 10 reaches the end of support, Microsoft will no longer be providing updates to Windows 10 devices. Microsoft will still manually distribute updates to Windows 10 devices, but there are suggestions that the corporation may convert to a new development cycle where significant Windows updates will be released every three years, much like in the past.

Do you continue to use Windows 10? If so, are you planning to update to Windows 10 version 22H2? In the comments, please share your ideas.
