Brand spankin’ new Windows 10 Mobile preview includes a boatload of fixes

Microsoft announced a new Insider Preview of Windows 10 Mobile on Wednesday that should continue to improve the experience of Window 10 Mobile users, particularly as it makes its way through testing and launches for all.

The latest build is number 10586.122 and will “address feedback [Microsoft] received on Windows 10 Mobile from devices such as the Lumia 950, 950 XL, 550 and 650 as well as the upgrade experience from Windows Phone 8.1,” Microsoft’s corporate vice president of the engineering systems team Gabe Aul said. There are a bunch of changes included, some of which are bugs we’ve seen in Windows 10 Mobile since the launch, like a fix for recording video to SD cards. Here’s a look at everything that’s included:

  • Improved Kanji input experience while using Continuum.
  • Improved the speed in which thumbnails appear for portrait videos.
  • Improved Internet Sharing on select mobile network configurations.
  • Fixed an issue in Microsoft Edge that prevented Word Flow input on some sites.
  • Fixed an issue that previously prevented the option to “Close all Tabs” in Microsoft Edge from closing all open tabs.
  • Improved IMS registration on select mobile network configurations.
  • Fixed an issue where adding your MSA during OOBE would fail and prevent the account from being re-added after the failure.
  • Improved the email sync experiences when connecting to Wi-Fi networks with a captive portal.
  • Improved data connection profiles for dual SIM devices.
  • Updated background processing of multiple changes to improve battery life of devices.
  • Improved quality of video record to SD memory cards.
  • Improved video recording audio in some cases.
  • Improved overall OS reliability, including reliability of the Start screen, app updates, and the Windows Feedback app
  • Improved Alarm reliability.

The update also adds Insider support for a bunch of new phones, including the MCJ Madosma Q501, BLU Win HD W510U, BLU Win HD LTE X150Q, and ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce XL. Hit the source to educate your brain a bit more on the update.
