New Redstone 5 Build Heads to Insiders, Your Phone Lands on Release Preview

Posted on August 24, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 2 Comments

Microsoft has released another build of Windows 10 Redstone 5 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. The company released a new build to Insiders in the Slow Ring just yesterday, as well as a Fast Ring build earlier this week. The latest build, 17746, isn’t any different from the past couple of builds: it only includes bug fixes and minor improvements.

Microsoft has included a minor fix for Windows Mixed Reality and Narrator as part of the build. Additionally, Microsoft is removing the ability to rename tabs that you’ve set aside in Microsoft Edge as it is going to “evaluate the right approach for this feature.” It’s not clear whether the feature will come back in time for the public release of Redstone 5, though.

In addition to the new Fast Ring build, Microsoft has announced that the new Your Phone app is landing for Insiders in the Release Preview ring. As long as you are running Windows 10 build 17134, you should be able to download the app from the Microsoft Store. Remond did release the Your Phone app to all Windows 10 version 1803 users earlier this month, though the release wasn’t intentional, and the firm later ended up removing the app for all Windows 10 users except Insiders.

As usual, Microsoft is only going to be releasing new Redstone 5 builds with minor bug fixes and improvements at this point. The company is close to the public release of the update, so it’s only focused on these minor fixes for the time being and getting them out to Insiders as soon as possible. Some of the recent builds are good examples of this, as they have all been focused on bug fixes.

    Hmmm. I'm on Release Preview, downloaded the Your Phone app, and it keeps telling me to check the notification on my phone for verification. And I get no notification... Maybe it's an updated version of the app still rolling out?
