Insiders Get New Builds of Windows 10 for PCs and Mobile

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14366 for PCs and Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14364 to Insiders on the Fast ring. The PC build is available immediately, but the Mobile build will be pushed out this evening.

Given the schedule, I’ve been waiting for an Insider build where Microsoft stopped adding new features and began the process of winding down Anniversary update development. So it’s no surprise that that time has come.

“The team is now laser focused on getting ready to ship the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to customers this summer,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar explains. “This means you won’t see significant new features in builds for a little while. But these builds will include a bunch of really good and important fixes and general performance improvements that we need Windows Insiders to check out and give us feedback on … Windows Insiders are critical to helping make that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update awesome for our customers.”

That said, there are a few notable additions to the new PC build:

Office Online for Microsoft Edge. With this build, you can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Sway Online using a new Office Online extension for Microsoft Edge. You can view, edit, and create Office files in Microsoft Edge, and access your recent files, thanks to OneDrive and OneDrive for Business integration.

Windows Store update.: A new version of the Windows Store app bumps the version number up to 11606.1000.43.0 and adds performance and reliability improvements.

Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14366 also fixes a number of issues from previous builds, as you might expect, and includes a few small fit and finish improvements. Mobile build 14364 likewise includes fit and finish and other improvements, and each includes a few known issues. Nothing major, but you can check this Microsoft announcement post for the full list.

Things are winding down: The Windows 10 Anniversary update is almost complete.
