The Phone Insider app will reportedly provide the ability to receive the pre-relase OS updates for Windows 10 for Phones, rumoured to be known as Windows Mobile 10.
Windows Insider Program, launched following the announcement of Windows 10, intended for PC experts and IT professionals gives access to the Technical Preview version to taste the pre-release version of the operating system. The members of Windows Insider Program will receive the early builds of Windows 10 having the latest features which are being experimented.
It now appears that Microsoft will follow a similar practice for the Windows 10 for Phones. An app called Phone Insider, published by Microsoft last November, is now available in the Windows Phone Store. The release note for the app suggests that it will offer the ability to receive the pre-release software updates, which will be for registered Windows Insiders only. Check the description of the app.
"The Phone Insider application provides registered Windows Insiders the ability to receive pre-release OS updates on their phone, directly from Microsoft. For more information about registering and becoming a Windows Insider visit http://insider.windows.com."
The Phone Insider app is now available for download from the Store.

Unlike the Preview for Developers program, the Phone Insider app will also be able to deliver carrier firmware, says WMPoweruser. Microsoft is yet to make anything official about the Phone Insider app but it could be the replacement for company's Preview for Developers program for Windows Phone 10.
Microsoft is expected to unveil the Windows Mobile 10 at an event scheduled on 21 January.
