Today, Microsoft is releasing two new builds of Windows 10 to Insiders. Redmond is releasing build 15042 for PCs, and build 15043 for Mobile devices to Windows Insiders. The latest builds of Windows 10 does not include a lot of new features, but still there are some changes.
First and foremost,let’s talk about the PC build:
- New Cortana animation in OOBE (PC): We know how much you love animations, so we wanted to share with you our updated Cortana persona that you’ll see when you land on the Cortana page in OOBE.
- Cortana intro Cortana speaking Cortana Outro.
- Prompt to enable Flash in Microsoft Edge (PC): Back in Build 15002, we introduced click-to-run Flash by default in Microsoft Edge, for better security and performance across the Web. In today’s build, we’ve added a new dialog in the URL bar to make it clearer when Flash content has been blocked. Just click the puzzle icon to allow Flash once or every time you return to the same site.
- Improved reading experience with Microsoft Edge: You loved the new Edge reading experience and gave us a TON of feedback. Here are some we implemented:
- When reading a locally saved EPUB book in Microsoft Edge on PC, a book icon will now be used in the place of the previous generic in the tab bar.
- If you switch pages while an EPUB book is being read aloud in Microsoft Edge, the reader will now jump to that new location in the book.
- If you’ve changed the read aloud settings when reading an EPUB in Microsoft Edge, those settings will now be preserved for subsequently opened books.
And what about for Mobile? There is nothing new for it.However, fix some issues and made some minor improvements — but that’s about it. There isn’t a single new feature coming to Mobile devices with build 15043. To be fair though, the improvements made to Microsoft Edge’s reading experience are available on Mobile devices too — so at least there’s something new for mobile users.
If you are a Windows Insider in the Fast Ring, you can get build 15042 on your Windows 10 PC and build 15043 on your Windows 10 Mobile device right now by heading over to Windows Update.
