Windows Insiders to get new features in early 2017

We already reported about Windows 10 PC getting many new features in Creators Update in early 2017, suggesting that many of them will eventually reach Windows 10 Mobile. The mobile version of Windows 10 has not been updated with new things for a while, even for Insiders, but this is about to change very soon. According to leaked internal builds of Windows 10 Mobile, many features and changes can be expected soon.

Microsoft is planning improvements in Edge, the Windows Update, the Settings app, Blue Light Reduction, and other features.

There will be a new menu in the Advanced Options to Pause Updates. You will be able to temporarily pause updates from being installed for up to 35 days.

The Devices section will mirror the Settings in Windows PCs, sharing the same UI and options. Microsoft Edge will get support for EPUB books, so you can read free electronic books from the browser. Edge will also be getting an UI revamp, to match the interface for Windows 10 PC.

Web Payments are coming to Windows 10 Mobile, allowing you to pay securely and easily on supported websites from your smartphone with the Wallet app.

Other changes expected for Windows Mobile are the Blue Light Reduction filter, View 3D app to view 3D content on the phone, new Share UI, improvements for Continuum and some other things.

The new features will be rolled out to the Insider program this month, before official public debut in the Creators Update later in 2017.
