Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Build Along With Your Phone Improvements

Posted on March 12, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 7 Comments

Microsoft is today releasing a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. The latest build, build 19582, is a fairly minor update that only brings one minor new feature.

The main new update in today’s build is improvements to Microsoft’s Eye Control accessibility feature. The company has updated the feature’s settings page with an improved interface to give the options “a bit more room to breath”. Apart from that, there aren’t any actual functionality changes to the feature.

As per usual, the new build includes some bug fixes and improvements, but nothing too major.

Microsoft did, however, note some major updates for the Your Phone app that’s coming (or are already available) to Insiders. The new updates are mainly for Samsung’s latest Galaxy devices — the S20/S20+/S20 Ultra and Z Flip — so don’t get too excited.

With the new update to Your Phone, users can now copy/paste between their PC and Samsung phones in select markets, and vice-versa. The update also enables users to enable a black screen while they are using the phone screen on their PC. And last but not least, Microsoft is also enabling RCS messaging for those with Samsung’s S20 devices who use the Samsung Messages app by default.

You can find the full changelog for today’s build here.

    Your Phone has legitimately become one of the best new features of Windows 10

    I don't use Samsung's messaging app, but all of the other features, (SMS Messages, Photo's, Calls, Notifications, and screen sharing), all work with my Galaxy Note 10+, my Galaxy Note 8, and my wife's Galaxy S8.

    most of the features work with any phone, samsung phones simply don't require you to download the app and it does screen mirroring

    I hope that when the next version of iOS comes out MS will be able to do a better job of integrating with an iPhone in the Your Phone app.
