Enable preview features for Azure Machine Learning

In Azure Machine Learning, new features and improvements are often first released as preview features before they're made generally available (GA). As new features are introduced, you can turn them on or off in the Azure Machine Learning studio at your convenience. That way, you get a chance to use the latest features, evaluate how they fit your work needs and provide feedback to shape the product. Your feedback is very valuable and it helps us constantly improve the product.

Some preview features provide access to entire new functionality while others may reflect a change to the user interface, but little or no change in functionality.

Note

The amount of time a feature remains in preview can vary based on user feedback, quality checks, and long-term road maps.

Important

The preview features are provided without a service-level agreement, and are not recommended for production workloads. Certain features might not be supported or might have constrained capabilities. For more information, see Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews.
