Microsoft has included a few more fixes and features to the beta version of the upcoming Windows 10 update. The current version is called Redstone 2 build 14946 and includes support for Windows Phone users besides the standard desktop platform.
The recently released build of the Windows 10 update doesn’t offer the full picture of all of its planned features. It’s very likely that Microsoft plans to announce any Redstone 2 major features at their upcoming event in New York on October 26.
Nonetheless, build 14946 still has some interesting things. Microsoft has added support for a larger variety of gestures on touchpads. Some of the new options include three and four finger gesture as well as different settings for taps. Microsoft even added options to configure various advanced gestures.
The Windows Phone platform is the main focus of the build. Mobile users will have the ability turn off any screen which is not in use with Continuum. Windows Phone will also come to a new feature that allows users to prevent the auto correct function, they can change the frequency of scheduled backups for mobile. There is even an option to delete a word from a user dictionary.
Additionally, both mobile and PC users can try out the test version of a new Wi-Fi feature. They can select the amount of time the Wi-Fi is enabled and how long before it turns back on. Other improvements in the build include a fix to the Edge crash and scrolling bugs as well as a solution to the Xbox Live sign-in problem.
The recently deployed build of Redstone 2 Windows 10 update is available for testing through the Fast Ring program. However, not anyone will be able to test the new features. According to Microsoft, users with third-party antivirus programs might not be able to receive the new build. Another issue of the build is that some Windows Store games may not start.
The new build is joined by an official Microsoft blog post. It includes guidance for users who are having trouble with the opt-in. The new Windows 10 update build can be tested by anyone who previously opted for the new builds but didn’t receive them. The new blog post offers a way to remediate this problem.
