3.7 million users have signed up for Windows Insider; video shows how to add printing to Windows 10 apps
The Windows Insider program allows Windows Phone users to test the mobile version of Windows 10. At Build 2015 last week, Microsoft announced that it now has 3.7 million subscribers in the program. Just a few months ago, the program held 2 million Windows Phone users so you can see how fast the Insider program is growing.

Microsoft is craving for feedback on Windows 10. With nearly 4 million users able to test the mobile Windows 10 build, this should provide the guys in Redmond with enough comments to know whether they are on the right track, and if any changes need to be made.

There is some talk that Windows Insider subscribers will keep receiving updates right up to the point when the OS is ready to be shipped to Windows Phone manufacturers. The longer that Microsoft runs the preview program, the more feedback it will receive. By implementing some of the suggestions coming from these Windows Insider members, Microsoft hopes to make its mobile OS even better than it had hoped it would be.

Speaking of Windows 10, a video starring Justin Hutchings, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, talks about developing apps and devices that print using Windows 10 mobile. Printing will work on Universal apps, not on Silverlight apps. And only network connected printers will work with Windows 10 mobile. USB printers will not work on the platform.

If you're a developer looking to add printing capabilities to your Windows 10 mobile apps, or just the curious type, click on the video below.
