Microsoft today released Windows 10 PC build 16251 to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. This build was originally released to Fast ring Windows Insiders last week and is replacing Windows 10 build 16232 as the most current Slow ring build.

There were plenty of new goodies in build 16251, including a new Continue on PC phone linking feature that allows Windows Insiders to share a webpage from an iOS or Android device to their Windows 10 PC. Other new features include an improved boot up experience, web searches from Cortana without opening the browser, and also Cortana voice commands to control PC power.

The build also came with a set of known issues and changes, which can be seen by clicking here.  You can also watch our own Cody Carson explore this build in the video below:

It’s great to see that this build has headed to the Slow ring. If you’re a Slow ring Insider, it should be showing up now in Windows Update, and if you’re a Fast Ring insider, you should be seeing the freshly released build 16257 now.
