The Insider builds change frequently, and so do the new features being added or removed.

Meanwhile, beta testers, tech enthusiasts, developers, and business owners can preview Windows security, management, and productivity features across various builds. This will help them understand the usefulness of the new features and accelerate Windows deployment. One can also submit and track feedback and communicate your needs.

Fast Ring and Slow Ring Windows 10 Insider Builds
After registering to the Windows Insider Program, you will start receiving the updates to your device. Two types of builds will be delivered to your device, Minor Build, and Major Build.
As a user, you also get to choose between Slow Ring and Fast Ring deployment channels. There is also the Release Preview Ring. The distinction is given below:
Fast Ring: Major Build releases, very few servicing builds.
Slow Ring: Major Build with minor build fixes attached.
Release Preview Ring: Major Build change at a release milestone, and then a continued series of Servicing Builds until the next release milestone is reached.
If you join the Fast ring, you will be the first one to use and offer feedback on new features. However, since it is the first stage of testing, you will have to handle some bugs and bottlenecks. It is also possible that some features might completely fail. You can report the issues to Microsoft with the help of Feedback Hub.
The Slow ring is for those who want to test out the new features will lesser bugs and failure rates. Slow Ring builds are stable and have been deployed only after taking feedback from the fast ring into consideration. That being said, the builds from the Slow Ring will still have some issues, and these will be fixed in the next ring.
