Today, Microsoft announced the availability of Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 14283 for testers on the Fast ring. This build includes updates to Phone, Mail, and Calendar, and fixes a number of issues from the previous Fast ring build.
Note: As has been the case with all Redstone-era Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview release, build 14283 is only being deployed to devices that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile. This includes the Lumia 950, 950 XL, 650, and 550, the Xiaomi Mi4, and the ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL.
Here’s what’s new and improved in build 14283.
Phone. The Phone app has been updated missed call and voicemail waiting indicators on the relevant tabs within the app. That means, for example, that if you missed a call, you would see a little “1” next to the Missed Call tab. “Once you navigate to a tab with a missed call or voicemail – the indicator goes away,” Microsoft explains. “We’ve got another change coming that will keep the indicator in place until you navigate away from the tab.”
Outlook Mail. The Mail app now lets you determine whether message preview text is displayed in the message list and includes a new “Move to Junk” option in the menu that appears whne you press and hold on a message.
Outlook Calendar. The Calendar app now display a “I’ll be late” button in meeting notification toasts so you can send that message to attendees without having to manually open the app.
Here’s what’s fixed in this build:
There are of course some known issues too. You may need to delete and then re-connect some Bluetooth devices. Microsoft Band 1 and 2 will not sync. The Gadgets app is not able to detect the Microsoft Display Dock. And connectivity with older Wi-Fi networks using the WEP encryption security method may be broken. (WEP is out of date and insecure anyway.)
And it’s not available in build 14283, but Microsoft says that the next build will include a new Feedback Hub that combines the functionality from the Insider Hub and Windows Feedback app. This new app will let you leave comments on feedback (in addition to upvoting), among other improvements.
