As we usually cover every month, only Windows Insiders get to test preview versions of the Windows 10 OneNote app. Well, Microsoft is now changing this, announcing it is now possible for everyone to sign up to get Insider builds.

To try out the Insider builds all you need to do is to update to the latest version of the app and head to Settings, click Office Insider, then toggle the “sign me up for early access to new releases of Office” checkbox. You can also choose from two levels, Insider, and Monthly channel.

The Office Insider level is best for those who don’t mind risks and want early access to preview builds to help give feedback and provide Microsoft with diagnostics. Everyone else, meanwhile, might want to check out the Monthly Channel, which is less risky.

This is all likely part of Microsoft’s efforts to give Windows fans early access to Windows 10 app updates. The company previously introduced the Windows App Preview Program, which allowed Windows Insiders to opt-in to preview new versions of individual Windows 10 apps.
