Get An Alert Anytime A New Windows Insider Build Is Released – IFTTT Recipe

The Windows Insider program releases new builds to two distinctive channel or rings. The Fast ring is the first to get a new build while the Slow ring will frequently need to hold up days, even weeks to get the same build. The new builds, when they’re available, should download automatically. Other than the updates, the best way to know whether another build is available is to visit Microsoft’s blog for Windows 10 or follow the right person on Twitter. On the off chance that neither of these alternatives suits you, you can simply utilize an IFTTT recipe to configure alerts on your mobile phone. We have only the recipe for it and we’re going to show you how to make your own.

In case you’re searching for a recipe to simply add to your IFTTT account, it’s right here. Every time Twitter user @donasarkar, the head of the Windows Insider program, tweets about a new build using the #WindowsInsider hashtag, you will get an alert on your mobile phone. You should have already installed the IFTTT application on your mobile phone to get the alert.

There are two more recipes made by Reddit user bazilion that alert you on Skype when @Donasarkar tweets about a new build, and when the Windows Blog is overhauled with a new post containing the words Windows Insider Build in the title. You can add both of these two to get alert on Skype.

In the event that these alerts aren’t the kind you are searching for, i.e. you would prefer email alerts rather than Skype or IFTTT alerts, then you can make your own IFTTT recipe.

To do as such, sign into IFTTT and begin making another recipe. Select Twitter as your Trigger Channel. From the list of trigger actions, select ‘New Tweet From Search’. Enter the following trigger parameter;

Next, select an action channel. You can choose whatever you need here; Android SMS, Gmail, and Slack are only a portion of the available alternatives. Save your recipe and activate it to begin getting alerts.
