Microsoft is continuing the final countdown to the Creators Update. Today, the company has released Windows 10 preview build 15055 to the Fast Ring of the Windows Insider Program. This update is for PCs and Phones and is the second Fast Ring release of the week.
Earlier in the week, Microsoft sent out build 15051, although it was only for Windows 10 Mobile. This is the first PC release of the week and continues Microsoft’s fast-paced roll out of Creators Update previews.
The feature update (known as Redstone 2) is due to launch next month, with April 11 a mooted date. Microsoft is expected to sign off on the build soon and turn its attention to Redstone 3. Preview builds are now coming thick and fast as Microsoft shores up the Creators Update for launch.
These builds are not feature-rich, and in fact have little in the way of tangible new additions. We are used to this and it was similar with the Anniversary Update (Redstone 1) last July. The updates increased in frequency, while the features decreased.
Like the Anniversary Update, Microsoft will roll out Redstone 3 to PC first and mobile later. Only this week has the company started giving Mobile some attention on the Inside.
Microsoft today released Windows 10 Mobile build 15055 to the Fast ring, making it the second one of its kind this week. Like its predecessor, which was 15051, there are no new front-facing features.
Windows 10 preview build 15055 changelog
So, Windows 10 build 15055 has no new features to speak of. However, it has numerous bug fixes, improvements, tweaks, and known issues. As always, Microsoft has detailed the nitty gritty for us to take a look:
- We fixed an issue from recent flights where the volume control might stop working when listening to music in Groove after an endpoint change (for example plugging in headphones).
- We’ve improved speech reliability by fixing a bug where Cortana was unexpectedly failing with a connection error.
- We fixed an issue where multi-turn Cortana speech interactions weren’t working (for example, when creating a reminder in multiple parts, as opposed to doing it in a single sentence).
Here are the known issues:
- We have discovered a bug that causes background tasks to not run in the background like they should such as OneDrive’s camera roll sync feature. Please double check your photos have synced to OneDrive on the latest builds. We’ve got a fix for this issue coming in an upcoming build where background tasks will run again and your camera roll will sync to OneDrive as expected.
- If your device experiences an unexpected reboot, in some cases you may lose your call, text, and email history may be lost. We’re actively investigating this issue. If you believe you’ve hit this, please up-vote this feedback item In Feedback Hub.
- There is a bug in this build that can cause a number of inbox apps to fail to launch (such as Store). There is no workaround to reset the Store unfortunately. This issue also prevents you from taking any app updates from the Store if the Store works for you. A workaround for this is to uninstall the app and reinstall the app from the Store. This issue will be fixed in the next build.
- Speech packs may be unable to download on this build.
- Some users are reporting that pages are constantly reloading or refreshing, especially while they are in the middle of scrolling them in Microsoft Edge. We’re investigating.
