Microsoft has released its Messaging Everywhere feature as part of the newly launched Windows 10 Mobile preview build 14327 for Insiders. It has also added more language support for Cortana.
In a blog post, Microsoft's Windows Insider head Gabriel Aul stated:
You can now try out the preview of the "Messaging everywhere" feature in Windows 10 that allows you to send and receive text messages from your phone directly from your Windows 10 PC's. To enable this:
- Make sure you are signed in with your Microsoft Account (MSA).
- On your phone – make sure "Send texts on all my Windows devices" is turned on.
- On your PC – make sure you have chosen which phone to send messages through. You do this in the settings of the Messaging app on your PC.
Try it out and less us know what you think via the Feedback Hub.
Aul also mentions that the Skype integration in the Messaging app has been removed in this new Windows 10 Mobile preview build:
This is so Skype can streamline your experience, replacing the integration with the Skype UWP Preview app for mobile in an upcoming build. In the meantime, you can use the existing Skype for Windows Phone app available in the Windows Store.
Finally, there are more supported languages for Cortana in this preview build:
With this build, we are enabling Cortana for the Spanish (Mexico), Portuguese (Brazil) and French (Canada) languages for Mobile (available previously in PC builds). If you're running the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview in these languages – give Cortana a try and let us know what you think. For each new market and language, the Cortana Team works to develop a custom experience that is relevant in each individual market and language. These are early versions that we will continue improve based on your feedback and we look forward to hearing more from you. Voice input is also now available for these languages. Set focus to a text field and tap the microphone above the keyboard to give it a try.
