Microsoft Phone Insider app hints at a preview version of Windows 10 for phones
An app located in the Windows Phone Store, could be a clue showing that a preview version of Microsoft's Windows 10 for phones will soon be released. The app, named Phone Insider, allows those registered with the Windows Insider program to load on their phone, pre-release versions of new Windows Phone builds straight from Microsoft. We should point out that even though there is a listing for the app in the Windows Phone Store, as of now there is no way of actually downloading and installing it on your phone.

Microsoft already has a Preview for Developers app that requires users to have an active Windows Phone Dev Center account, an active App Studio account or use a registered developer device. This app allows Windows Phone users to install pre-release versions of Microsoft's mobile OS before the carriers receive them.

Using the Preview for Developers app could void your warranty, something that doesn't seem to be the case with the Microsoft Phone Insider app. Additionally, registering with the Windows Insider program means being able to send Microsoft feedback about any pre-release OS you install. While Microsoft hasn't said that a preview version of Windows 10 for phones is going to be released, the fact that this app might soon be available to install is a strong sign that such a preview will be offered.
