Windows 10 Header

Microsoft has release a new Windows 10 SDK today for Visual Studio. Since the company has not released a new Windows 10 for Phones Preview a while ago we can have a look at a few new features though, through the new Windows 10 SDK for developers. The released version of Windows 10 is version 10030.12513 and brings some changes to the native messaging app furthermore there will be a native app for blocking calls. The first Technical Preview which Microsoft has released was Build Version 12498, so we went from this to 12513 with the SDK.

Below you can have a look at some screenshots taken in the Windows Phone Emulator. It shows us some changes which have been brought to the messaging app and you can see also the new app to block calls. Inside the app you can have a look at your Blocked Calls, your Blocked Messages and an overall list of all blocked contacts and of course you can find the settings. In Settings you can choose to block contacts without an caller ID and you can get notifications. The notifications probably tell you when a call has been blocked. To add a number to the blocked list, simply enter the phone number and choose block.


The messaging app doesn’t really bring any new features, except the integration of ‘blocked messages’ in the app bar. Though it has been completely redesigned to fit in to the new design language. No sign of the showed off Skype integration in the messaging app so far.


That’s all we know about the new Build Version in the Windows 10 SDK so far, stay tuned for more information. Don’t forget to drop me a comment below with your thoughts on the new messaging app and the app to block calls.
