Yesterday Microsoft released build 14327 of Windows 10 Mobile for subscribers of the Fast Ring. Beside bug fixes and performance improvements the build also brought a few Redstone features. These features are now available for Windows Insiders and will be rolled out to consumers with the Windows Anniversary update this summer. Part of these Redstone features is the ‘Messaging Everywhere’ experience. This allows users to write text messages not only from their phone but rather from all of their Windows 10 device which are configured with the same Microsoft account.
Messaging Everywhere is a great addition to the Universal experience of Windows 10 for all platforms. The cool thing about it is that you will not need an additional SIM card or anything. The text messages are just synced instantly between your phone and your PC/Tablet which let’s you have a normal conversation on your PC just as you would be using your phone. With build 14327 ‘Messaging Everywhere was not the only new feature for the messaging app though. Microsoft has also added swipe actions to the messaging app which lets you delete conversations by swiping to the left. Similar to the Outlook Mail you can simply swipe to the right and delete conversations, if you have deleted a conversation by mistake you can also undo these changes.
Those swipe actions are a nice addition the messaging app of Windows 10 Mobile and make it a bit more polished. Unfortunately it is not possible to customize them in settings like you might be used to from the Outlook mail app. Though I am pretty sure that Microsoft will implement this in a future release.
