Here’s what’s new, fixed and improved in Windows 10 Mobile build 14926

Dona Sarkar and the Windows Insider team have released Windows 10 Insider build 14926 into the wild. Windows Insiders can start downloading build 14296 for PC and Mobile in the fast ring now. In addition to reiterating that preview builds do indeed expire eventually, Microsoft announced a few new features for Windows 10 Mobile build 14926. Here is a look at whats new and what is fixed in Windows 10 Mobile build 14926.

First, the Wi-Fi settings page has been updated for mobile to match what it looks like on PC. The Windows Team mentions:

The new Wi-Fi settings page isn’t complete yet as we continue to port over functionality. If need, you can fallback to using the Wi-Fi (legacy) settings page to access any missing functionality. In addition, we added the capability for you to connect to WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) networks on your phone.

Microsoft also listed the following fixes and improvements for Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14926:

  • We fixed a scaling issue on devices such as the Lumia 635, 636, or 638 where the bottom of certain apps, like Messaging and Maps, would get cut off and rendered off screen.
  • We heard you and we have addressed the largest cause of reliability issues in Microsoft Edge running on Insider Preview builds. This should improve reliability on major websites such as Facebook and Outlook.com.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the sound of key presses and lock/unlock being barely audible when the phone was using a moderate volume.
  • We fixed an issue where, if Quiet Hours had been turned on, banner notifications might not start appearing again until Action Center was opened or an interactive notification popped up and was dismissed.
  • We fixed an issue where Cortana would crash when trying to open Reminders page.
  • We have improved the reliability of VPN Settings page via Settings > Network & wireless > VPN.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the thumbnail for portrait videos displaying with an incorrect aspect ratio in the Photos app when panning through the Camera Roll.

Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14926 should be showing up in the Fast Ring for Windows Insiders now, and so head over to Settings > Update & Security > and Check for Updates. If you’ve noticed any other changes or improvements, let us know in the comments section below.
