How to Upgrade Windows Phone to Window 10 Insider

Are you interested to test the preview version of Windows 10 on your Windows Phones? So “how to” install Windows 10 preview version on Windows Phone? You just need to install an application called “Phone Insider” from Windows Phone website here. The name of Phone Insider application is now changed to “Windows Insider“. I’m afraid you won’t find this application in Windows Store until Microsoft releases preview of Windows 10 (for mobile devices). But you can install it on your windows phone from the above mentioned link.

The Windows Insider application provides registered Insiders the ability to receive pre-release OS updates on their phone, directly from Microsoft.
