‘Rollback’ Feature in Windows 10 Preview for Phones

9:27 PM

If you’re excited to test out the upcoming Windows 10 Preview on your smartphone, but you’re worried about bugs and other instabilities might come with it, Microsoft may be working on a feature to put your mind at ease.

“We’ll share more details later, but ability to rollback if you hit an issue is very important to us,” said Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul during a Twitter Q&A, when quizzed about the ability to downgrade to an older Windows Phone releases.

While an rollback feature would allow users to upgrade to the Windows 10 Preview and try it out, then downgrade to a previous build or even to an existing Windows Phone release if they run into any issues.
Not only would this be useful for developers, but also to consumers who — despite the best advice — might upgrade their daily drivers to Windows 10 Preview builds because they don’t want to wait for the update to be released to the public.
Aul’s tweet wasn’t a promise of things to come, so the ability to rollback may not appear in Windows 10 pre-release builds. We can keep our fingers crossed, however.
