What’s new in Windows 10 Mobile build 14327
Messaging Everywhere, Update notifications, and more
All Windows Insiders who are on the Fast Ring can now upgrade their phones to Windows 10 Mobile Preview build 14327. This build comes after version 14322 released last week and includes a number of fixes and new features for insiders to try.
Among the new things is the Messaging integration between a PC and Phone. Messaging Everywhere allows you to send and receive text messages directly from the PC. The feature is enabled by signing in using the same MS account on both devices. Then go to Settings and turn on ‘Send texts on all devices’. On the PC you need to select which phone to send messages through.
At the same time, Microsoft has removed the Skype integration in the Messaging app. Until the new Universal Skype for Windows 10 is ready, Insiders on the Redstone branch need to use the existing Skype app for Windows Phone 8.1.
Other new features in this build:
- Swipe to delete messages from the Messaging app
- Wi-Fi 2.0 Hotspot in Settings → Network & Wireless—>Wi-Fi—>Manage
- Insider Ring slider in Settings → Update and Security → Windows Insider Program. The selector is already available on Desktop
- App updates notifications in the Action Center. Users will be notified about pending app updates
- Cortana in more markets: Spanish (Mexico), Portuguese (Brazil) and French (Canada)
Here’s what’s been fixed and improved:
- Unresponsive screen and Windows Hello
- Apps failing to launch from the Start Screen
- Auto-correction improvements
- Fixed Glance Screen appearance in case of changed Ease of Access scaling
- Issues with Bluetooth tethering
- An issue with lock-screen background unable to be set
