Device Hub updated on Windows 10 Mobile, now Gadgets app

The Windows 10 Mobile Device Hub, which allows connecting to and controlling accessories connected to a Windows 10 Mobile device, has been updated to version 4.2.155.0. The most obvious change to the app is its transformation into the Gadgets app, and that's now where you'll find it in your list of apps.
The Gadgets app allows you to connect and disconnect from external devices, monitor battery life on supported devices, and perform other actions like locating a device.

The Gadgets app is now more in line with Windows 10 Mobile's overall look and feel, which is always a good thing. And, you'll need to remember where to look the next time you need to manage a connect device--sorry, we meant gadget. So, go ahead and hit update on your Windows 10 Mobile device to get the new Gadgets app.
