New Windows Phone app will let you load pre-release OS and send feedback to Microsoft automatically
Last week, we told you about an app for Windows Phone users called Phone Insider that will let those who install it, load pre-release versions of Windows Phone onto their handset. According to the top guy running the Windows Insider Program, Gabriel Aul, Microsoft plans on talking about the app on January 21st when it holds an event for Windows 10.

But something new popped up in the Windows Phone Store on Thursday. An app called Windows Previewer Beta appeared. Screenshots of the app (which were taken by Windows Phone developer Jeremy Sinclair) show that it sets up your phone to receive pre-release software from Microsoft. By setting up your phone to receive the pre-release software, it also is prepping the handset to send feedback to Microsoft automatically.

It all adds up to the strong possibility that we are closer to the Windows Insider Program version of Windows 10 for Phone. Once Microsoft is ready to unveil Windows 10 for Phone, we could see this app renamed Phone Insider. After all, there is no sense in having two separate apps handling the same chore. By the same token, it could be called Windows Previewer when launched. We should know more next Wednesday.
