How to become an MSFS Insider

I am unable to find where to sign up for MSFS Insider, please help

insiders were early beta testers, its closed now

So I will not be able to test VR?


In order to participate in the VR Closed Beta you must meet or complete the following:

  1. You must own the sim
  2. Have a VR headset (WMR HMDs Phase 1, Additional Headsets Phase 2)
  3. Be a registered Insider <---------
  4. Submit your DxDiag
  5. Agree to and adhere to the NDA
  6. Meet the minimum specifications
    • OS: Windows 10 (November 2019 Update – 1909)
    • DirectX: DirectX 11
    • CPU: Intel i5-4460 or Ryzen 3 1200
    • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 or equivalent
    • VRAM: 8 GB
    • RAM: 16 GB
    • HDD: 150 GB
    • Bandwidth: 5 Mbps

Hi, this is not possible anymore. The VR Beta Program is closed for new applicants.

Yes, I have a Vive which means I have to wait for Phase 2 and I am guessing that will be a new entry thing.
I might be wrong

  1. Have a VR headset (WMR HMDs Phase 1, Additional Headsets Phase 2)

Also it says here “or sign up to be an Insider” so it should still be possible right?

In order to have access to the VR Closed Beta Sign Up Page, you need to either already be a MSFS Insider or sign up to be an Insider. Once logged in, follow the link here to submit your DxDiag . You must re-submit your DxDiag if you have already uploaded it in the past in order to express your interest in this Beta. You do not have to be a previous Alpha/Beta tester to sign up. You are not automatically enrolled if you have been an Alpha/Beta tester in the past.

From the Nov 12 development update

As a small update on the VR Closed Beta, Wave 2 invitations (non-WMR headsets) will be sent out later this afternoon with access rolling out slowly over the next couple of days. We have gathered enough testers at this time and will be closing sign-ups today. Thank you for participating and we look forward to working with you.

So it’s not possible to sign up for the beta anymore.

I see :frowning:
Is it possible to sign up as an Insider?

and is there an estimated date when VR will release?

I don’t think it’s possible anymore at the moment. But don’t hold it on me, I could be wrong :slight_smile:

Currently it is not possible as aforementioned. That is not to say it won’t be available in the future! :wink:

Okay, thanks :slight_smile:
