Block & Filter updated for Windows 10 Mobile
The built-in call blocking app receives an update
The native call blocking app in Windows 10 Mobile has been updated with new features and improvements.
Using the app you can block, filter and manage unwanted calls and SMS messages. You can block a contact directly from the phone app – by long-pressing the contact and choosing ‘block contact’. All unwanted/blocked calls won’t be displayed in the call history, but they are accessible via the ellipsis menu.
You will be notified of blocked calls and messages in the action center by default, but you can turn off the notifications from the app settings.
Here’s what’s new in the update:
- Improve localized text
- More reliable data storage
- Performance improvements
- UI improvements
- Migrate the list of blocked numbers from the Call+SMS Filter app on Lumia phones.
