Windows Insiders are once again getting updates. Microsoft launched a new update for Windows 10 on the Fast Ring today. The release brings build 14926 for both PCs and mobile. You may remember that the Insider Program has been inactive for a week. Microsoft announced a week ago that it was updating its monitoring systems.

As we have seen with recent Windows 10 preview updates, build 14926 is not littered with features. There are a couple to be interested by, though. As is normally the case, there are numerous improvements and bug fixes.

One of the key new features is a Snooze ability for mobile devices. We wrote about this last week and predicted it would be arriving soon. The Snooze feature will appear in a new menu item located in Microsoft Edge.

Features

Users will be able to engage with the feature through Cortana thanks to support for the virtual assistant. It will be possible to set up a reminder for things on the web page. For example, a reminder can be set up to suggest you share a page with someone, or to come back to it for some reason.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 14926 introduces a new Wi-Fi setting page, which we also talked about recently. The platform has been running on the old Windows 8.1 menu reskinned for Windows 10 Mobile. This Fast Ring release brings a new page to the platform, a dedicated UI for Windows 10.

PCs have not been ignored. Microsoft has made the upgrade experience easier when uninstalling stock Windows 10 applications. The system is less obtrusive and the OS will not re-install the apps when the whole platform is updated.

As is usually the case, Microsoft has also gone to war on a number of bugs and made plenty of improvements under the hood.
