Messaging Everywhere Microsoft

The company decided to roll out a second Windows 10 Mobile preview release in a week, with build 14327 following build 14322.

Microsoft is keeping the Windows 10 Mobile preview builds coming at a rapid pace and just a week after rolling out build 14322 the company has sent out build 14327.

Of course, this is an Insider build preview on the Fast Ring, so you need to be a part of the Windows Insider Program to get a look at this upgrade.

That means you can leave feedback on the features that Microsoft may (or may not) tweak before the full build is rolled out to Windows 10 Mobile end users.

Considering last week’s build 14322 was a pretty substantial upgrade, build 14327 is not quite so full of new features and functionality.

It does add some new goodies though, which Microsoft detailed in an official blog post to announce the release of the update to the Fast Ring. A Messaging Everywhere preview is the main new addition here, which lets users get messages sent to their mobile devices directly to the Windows PC.

Microsoft also moved ahead with its plan to re-unify the Skype experience in one Universal Windows Platform application, which is why in Windows 10 Mobile build 14327 Skype is not present integrated into the Messaging app.

Cortana has also been enhanced on mobile with the inclusion of new languages, with Spanish (Mexico), Portuguese (Brazil) and French (Canada) added to the virtual assistant. The company points out that these are early versions of the languages and that Cortana will continue to improve before the new languages head to end users.

Aside from those big changes, Microsoft has also made plenty of security fixes and squashed a few bugs:

We fixed the issue where in some cases your phone’s screen may not turn on and become unresponsive and Windows Hello stops working if you used the power button to lock/unlock your phone quickly.
We fixed the issue where in some cases, users might get in a state where neither space or enter are working on the keyboard.
We fixed the issue causing Facebook Messenger and other apps like WeChat, Transfer My Data, and UC Browser from failing to launch from Start or All apps.
We fixed an issue where diverse emoji couldn’t be deleted from the text box in an interactive notification.
We have updated the autocorrection logic so that if you have a word that’s about to be autocorrected, tapping the word you just typed will now stop the autocorrection from happening.
We have updated the Glance screen so it will now reflect Ease of Access text scaling.
We fixed an issue where tethering over Bluetooth wouldn’t work if Bluetooth had never been turned on before.
We fixed an issue where you couldn’t set a sample image as a lock screen background.

You may see square boxes in certain apps when using some of the new emoji – we’re still getting support for the new emoji added throughout the systems, this will be resolved in a future build.
