Microsoft usually releases a new Insider build to Dev or Beta Channel Insiders. Although this week will be exceptional. It has just confirmed that no Insider builds will be released to Dev or Beta channel users this week. However, the software giant has not clarified why it has decided not to release them.
quick head up #WindowsInsider: We will not be releasing new builds this week to either the Dev or Beta channels. Total bummer, we know. pic.twitter.com/NpYsc4iLzn

According to Microsoft watcher @PhantomOfEarth, the company was supposed to release build 22624 to Beta Channel Insiders today and build 25305 to Dev Channel Insiders. The sudden change in plans is believed to be a case of stabbing near the Microsoft One Astera building. No one has lost their lives in this attack so far, but many people have been injured.
Hopefully, Microsoft will be back next week with new Insider builds for Dev and Beta Channel Insiders. Next week’s build will be the last for February. And in March, the company will be busy rolling out the Windows 11 Moment 2 update to the general public, as well as releasing new features with Insider builds.
*very* less important note: this is probably the main reason no dev/beta builds have been made this week

We don’t know what Microsoft will offer in the next Insider build. But we do know that Windows 11 Moment 2 release will bring that for the users. Coming features include a tablet-optimized taskbar, a new taskbar search bar option, energy recommendations in the Settings app, voice access enhancements, a modern system tray flyout, improved widget support, and a more advanced Snipping Tool app.
Windows Insiders have already tested all the features that the Moment 2 update will add to Windows 11. So, if you want to try out new features before the general public, you should register to the Windows Insider Program via the Settings app. Be aware, however, that Windows Insider builds are unstable and should never be installed on your primary computer, as installing those builds can cause expected results.
