It has been almost a month since the last Insider build for mobile hit users. Fortunately, head of the Windows Insider program Dona Sarkar and her Windows engineers are delivering a new build to play with this holiday season.
Here’s what’s new in Windows Insider preview build 14977 for mobile:
What’s new in Build 14977
Read EPUB books in Microsoft Edge on your phone: In addition to being able to read any unprotected e-book in the EPUB file format on your PC with Microsoft Edge – you can also read unprotected e-book in the EPUB file format with Microsoft Edge on your phone! When you open an unprotected e-book in Microsoft Edge, you will be taken into a customizable reading experience where you can change the font and text size and choose between 3 themes: light, sepia, and dark. As you read, you can leave bookmarks. To navigate through an e-book, you can use the table of contents or seek bar at the bottom of the browser. And you can also search for words or phrases and use Cortana to define specific words.
You can download and read unprotected e-books from places like Feedbooks, Project Gutenberg, Free eBooks (requires sign-up), ePubBooks (requires sign-up), Open Library and even our own Microsoft Press. Try out reading an e-book in Microsoft Edge on your phone and let us know what you think!
Not the treasure trove of new features some may have hoped for but a nice refinement of the Edge browser a few might welcome.
Fast Ring Insiders should head to their Update Settings to grab the latest preview build today.
Happy downloading, Insiders!
