Microsoft has released a new build 9926 of its next generation desktop operating system dubbed Windows 10 for Windows Insiders. The new build was showcased at the recently concluded Microsoft’s Windows 10 event, and includes a number of new features such as Cortana and an updated UI.

“Some of the new features that Joe demoed on Wednesday will be available for our Windows Insiders starting today with our newest build – 9926,” said Microsoft.

“However, not everything you saw on Wednesday is included in this new build. Much is still in-progress and we’re getting it out to you as fast as we can. Over the course of the next few builds, you will see us refine Windows 10 and continue to improve the experiences as well as quality and stability,” Microsoft added.
