Microsoft completely blind-sided Windows Insiders today by releasing a new build 10536 for Windows 10 Mobile.
This build was supposed to be released last week Friday, but due to an update bug, Microsoft announced they would release it on Tuesday (Sept. 15th) as they had fixed the issue.
But they surprised us all by rolling out the new build late Monday instead!
If you are enrolled in the Fast Ring program for Windows Insiders, you should see the update is now available.
But before you go ahead and download it, let's check out the new improvements that comes with this latest build and also the known issues...
Here are some of the improvements we’ve made since the last build:
- Insider Hub is now included again!
- Mobile hotspot functionality has been fixed.
- Voice input has been updated to add support for Japanese and English (India) speech recognition.
- Single hop updates are again available from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview for all devices.
- Two-factor authentication is fixed when setting up a device for both text and phone authentication.
- Start screen will successfully load instead of failing with “Loading …” displayed in a loop until device was rebooted. (We are still tracking down an issue were it may show “Loading …” for a few seconds.)
- Quite Hours\Do Not Disturb has been fixed.
- Delay in showing date and time on Lock screen has been improved.
- Pinch and zoom in Maps now works as expected.
And here are a few known issues for you to take note of for this build:
- After rebooting your phone, you won’t see notifications, such as new messages, until you unlock your phone. After that, you should see notifications for new messages just fine.
- “zStorage” appears in the Settings app under System and clicking on it causes the Settings app to crash.
- Camera upload to OneDrive may not be enabled based on prior settings. To fix this, make sure you are running the latest version of OneDrive by opening the top left navigation bar, then settings on the right to verify that camera upload is turned on and you have the latest app (version 17.2).
- Insiders will not be able to move from Slow to Fast rings temporarily; we are working on a fix but in the interim to move a device from Slow to Fast you will need to use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to first start on Windows Phone 8.1 and opt directly into the Fast ring.
- Additional languages for speech and keyboards won’t be available until tomorrow (9/15) and will error if you try to download. If you already have languages for speech and keyboards downloaded to your phone prior to upgrading, they will remain and available to use.
As usual, we will be bringing you a video hands on with the new build and the new improvements made!
