With RTM days away, Microsoft promises a new Windows 10 build, coming this week

Earlier today, it emerged that Windows 10 is now just a few days away from hitting its all-important RTM milestone, at which point the first version of the OS will be finalized ahead of its launch on July 29. Neowin's Senior Editor for North America, Brad Sams, was able to confirm with his sources that Microsoft is aiming to sign off on the RTM build on July 9.

But while it aims to hit RTM this Thursday, Microsoft has also confirmed that it will roll out at least one more build before the end of the week. The latest available build is 10162, which the company released last Thursday.

In a post today discussing changes to Xbox Music - which has now been renamed 'Groove' - and the Movies & TV app (formerly known as Xbox Video), Microsoft referred to "the new features you'll find with both apps in the build coming to Windows Insiders this week."

The post further reiterated the promise of a new preview on the way: "Windows Insiders who are a part of the Fast ring and upgrade to the next PC build will see these updates in the Store beta first. For anyone else, you’ll get to enjoy these updates with Windows 10 starting on July 29th."

Microsoft may be planning to deliver the RTM build to Insiders this week, but it's not clear if it plans to deliver a further interim preview build before then - after all, last week, it rolled out three new preview builds in four days.
