Microsoft has pushed out a new update to its Phone app on Windows 10 Mobile. The new update seems to be Minor one, bringing no new improvements. The new updated version is 2.17.20004.0. As no new changelog is there, we assume it as bug fixes and improvements.


However last update added following features :

  • The number of missed calls now shows on the History tab.
  • The Voicemail tab now shows the number of new voicemails.
  • Less is more—removed the text from the tabs for a cleaner look.
  • Fixed a problem when dialing contacts by name.
  • Improved performance for opening the app.
  • Improved app reliability by fixing some problems that caused the app to fail.

So, head over the store to update the app!
