Stories did however seem to work as intended on Windows 10 PCs which are naturally more powerful than Windows 10 Mobile smartphones and could handle the extra processing necessary for the real-time video editing.

Last year, Microsoft said it planned to deploy two major Windows 10 updates per year, every April and September.

This build is from the RS4 branch, which represents the next Windows 10 update the company has yet to announce (but is expected to ship sometime this month).

Microsoft has also confirmed earlier reports that as the Build 17133 "progressed", the company discovered "some reliability issues" that it wanted to fix.

For some insider testers, Microsoft released Redstone 4 test build, No. 17134 on April 16.

Microsoft made a decision to create a new build in order to fix all these bugs, instead of creating a new Cumulative Update package. In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example.

Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Preview Build 17643 for Insiders who chose to receive builds from the Skip Ahead ring. She did not note exactly what caused this bug. Microsoft exemplified BSODs, however, does not reveal all the issues the build may have caused. It has no new features but simply corrects the problems in Build 17133 - which should have been the version that we saw being released as stable.

The new build is now available to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. The new build features all the necessary fixes and improvements to prevent the issues that blocked the initial release in the first place.

Windows 10 is a service, meaning it was built in a very different way from its predecessors so it can be regularly updated with not just fixes, but new features, too.
