The road goes on and on! The second most table channel of the Windows Insider Program, known as the Beta channel, will soon be getting the first taste of Windows 11.
As you are probably aware, the Windows Insider Program has been designed for users and enterprises interested to get early access to upcoming OS releases. The preview program currently has three levels of readiness — Dev Channel, Beta Channel, and Release Preview.
The first two of these previously went by as Fast Ring and Slow Ring.
At the moment, the preview version of Windows 11 is available for those that are part of the Dev Channel of the Insider program. Unlike the other two tiers, builds in this channel are generally buggy as it is designed to give you access to new improvements as soon as they are read for public preview.
Microsoft has now confirmed that testers enrolled in this channel will soon be able to get their hands on their very own preview builds.
Later this month. Appreciate your patience.

The tech giant is now planning to ship Windows 11 preview build to Beta channel later this month, which promises to be a more polished affair. Perfect for those that want in on the new features, but don’t want to deal with critical bugs and stability issues.
In addition to this, we are also expecting official ISO images for the Windows 11 preview to be released alongside.
Windows 11 build 22000.71, which was released last week, is the latest version of the Insider preview available for testers. It brought along a handful of new features, though they arrived with a whole new set of bugs and issues.
