The Insider Hub app in Windows 10 is "your one-stop-shop for all the latest news and announcements regarding the Windows Insider program. "  Designed specifically for those that participate in the Windows Insider program, the hub app provides news and "quests" that highlight a feature or scenario Microsoft wants your help to test and provide feedback. The Windows Insider hub app is not installed by default and is hidden in the new Apps & Features settings app.

To get started, click on the Start Button and type in Apps and Features and hit Enter.
