Windows 10 Mobile update

Finally, the Windows team is delivering Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 14342 to Fast Ring participants. Two weeks ago, the Windows team ran into a bug that had the group pump the breaks on a release then. The following week, the Windows team took the next five days evaluating several flights and ultimately decided on waiting until today to release its latest mobile effort.

With a two-week wait under their belts, Windows 10 Mobile Insider can now look forward to a couple of new features that have been added to the preview that include:

  • Swipe navigation in Microsoft Edge: Since the release of Windows 10 Mobile, our top feedback request for Microsoft Edge has been asking for the return of the swipe gesture to navigate back and forward. With this build, you can now swipe from anywhere on the page to get back to your previous page.
  • Apps for websites: As we discussed at Build 2016, you will soon be able to redirect certain websites to open with an app instead. This is a new capability, so apps that support this are still in progress. In preparation for their availability, we have added a new page at Settings > System > Apps for websites where you will be able to manage them. Stay tuned for more on this.
  • Feedback Hub improvements: We’ve heard from you that it can sometimes be hard to find which category your feedback belongs in. Now when you create new feedback, the Feedback Hub will suggest categories and subcategories based on the title and description you entered. If you see a suggestion that looks right, just click it to fill in the menus and get your feedback to the right engineers quickly.

Unlike other recent releases, the list of new features is a much shorter and focused list. Insiders who have been waiting for their next taste of the Windows team’s efforts on mobile are sure to appreciate what’ll be hitting their devices in the next few hours.

Happy downloading, Insiders!
