A new Build 14342 is now available for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring.
This latest build brings a few new features including the popular swipe navigation in Edge browser.
Here is the short list of new features:
Swipe navigation for Edge Browser: This feature was introduced in last week’s PC Build 14342 and we now see it make its way to Windows 10 Mobile devices. You can swipe right to go back a web page, swipe left to go forward.
Apps for websites: Probably my favorite feature introduced in this Build 14342. Microsoft has enabled the web links to redirect to the apps. For instance, if you try to open an Instagram link, it will open in the app instead. Now the app in question has to support this new feature and at the moment not many apps do as this feature was just introduced last week. But as apps (like Facebook, Instagram or 3rd party youtube apps get updated, we will be able to use it)
Lastly, the Feedback Hub app has been improved on, Microsoft enabled auto-suggestion of categories you would like to submit your feedback to.
Most of the work in this build was done on fixing bugs and there are quite a lot of fixes/improvements…
- We fixed an issue causing installation of mobile builds to fail with Error 80070002.
- Language and Speech Packs should download without any errors.
- We have fixed the issue causing DRM-protected content from services like Groove Music, Microsoft Movies & TV, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu to fail on playback with 0x8004C029 or 0x8004C503 errors.
- We fixed the issue where some users with some non-English keyboards were not able to enter letters such as w, y, and a when typing into the address bar of the Edge browser.
- We fixed the issue causing your phone to lock up and reboot when it receives a notification from an app that has “Keep notifications private on the lock screen” turned on under Settings > System > Notifications & actions.
- We increased font size and improved spacing of the data migration page after receiving an update.
- Polished icons used to identify pages in the Settings app – in particular, updated battery icon to be more consistent with the weight of the other icons.
- Improved performance when retrieving updated GPS coordinates while driving.
- Goodbye message on shutdown will now remain visible until the last moment, to make it easier to determine when your device is off.
- Polished the look of media controls on the Lock screen. When you press one of the media control buttons, it appears “pressed”.
- We fixed an issue where some apps, including Tweetium, would crash on launch.
- We fixed an issue where Action Center’s context menus would appear in the wrong orientation if the app underneath was in landscape mode.
- We fixed an issue where Lumia 435, 532, 535 and 540 would fail to record video, as well as an issue where advanced camera settings were not preserved when taking a photo with the Lumia 435, resulting in the photo being taken with default settings instead.
- Fixed an issue where the same device might be listed multiple times under Connect.
- Fixed an issue where quickly pressing the power button twice when Windows Hello is enabled could result in the display appearing stuck off.
- We fixed the issue where Groove Music might show an error saying “Can’t play – Another app is controlling your sound right now”.
- When delayed lock is setup, Windows Hello will now say “Swipe up to dismiss the lock screen”, rather than looking for your iris.
- We fixed an issue where Glance wouldn’t be displayed when hovering hand over proximity sensor.
- We fixed an issue where multiple UWPs might start crashing on launch after getting stuck on their splash screen.
