About those 'rumors' of a February 4 release of Windows 10 preview for phones

The Windows Central tip box has been pinging constantly regarding the so called 'rumor' of the Windows 10 preview for phones launching on February 4. Microsoft's Gabe Aul puts the situation into words better than any of us here ever could.

"@doctuitt LOL, you might be overdoing it a bit. Just sayin'. We're working on it, but the rumors of the 4th are just rumors."

So, there's that.

Of course, Microsoft could pull a total U-turn, but for now, carry on your normal lives.

  • Cue the weeping and wailing!!!
  • Weeping and wailing cued!
  • *queued
  • No, "cued" is correct in this case.
  • Haha, the word 'cue' is really only used as a noun, in being the stick you play pool with. That's a cue.
    You could potentially say 'cued' to mean that you are hitting/poking someone with said stick.
    However in the above context, it's incorrect. Although, perhaps the first commenter meant it in the sense that the impatient should be beaten with a cue (to which I may agree with because GOOD GOD some people here are losing their minds over pre-release software not being released to their expectation). In which case the second commenter may have already begun beating said entitled people, and so their use of the word 'cued' is correct.
  • http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cued?s=t   verb (used with object), cued, cuing. 7. to provide with a cue or indication; give a cue to; prompt: Will you cue me on my lines? 8. to insert, or direct to come in, in a specific place in a musical or dramatic performance (usually followed by in or into): to cue in a lighting effect. 9. to search for and reach (a specific track on a recording) (sometimes followed by up).
  • Is this a joke or are you really a self righteous asshole
  • It's a joke.
  • I would have chosen the other reply ;-) just to tease more.
     
  • Thank you for that incredibly useless and totally unwarranted waste of time 8th grade English lesson. Booo. Boo this man.
  • I'm not a native English speaker and I LOVED the lesson!
  • That awkward moment where you don't know what the word "cue" means... seriously, "pool cue" is the only usage of this word that you know? *facepalm*
  • It's it queued, not cue?
  • No... "cue" is correct. It's like saying "now we will have weeping and wailing", not "everyone get in line to weep and wail when it's their turn"
  • 8th Feb confirmed
  • They are lazy enough to postpone update roll-outs on WEEK DAYS...So how can you expect them to roll-out updates on Sunday?
  • *Weeps and wails* :)
  • Seems wailier
  • If it's too good to be true it usually is
  • waaaaaaaaaah!!!
  • Tomorrow its my birthsday!
  • Happy b day, my friend.
  • Seems birthier.
  • Seems older
  • Me too! Happy Birthday!
  • Happy birthday!!
  • Happy birthday
  • Seems faster
  • oh please shut it.
  • This is one of those moments i wish I could hold down the letter 'O' to create a massive long Nooooooo fast.
  • Come on know the insider page just plain says Feb and nothing more where would anyone get that idea........!!!!!! Really now. Remember things will come to those who wait lol.
  • I got pee pees in my poo poo.
  • Excellent.
  • My God, did you read the replies to Gabe Aul?
    People are just stupid. They're just rants without logical reason.
    They said it would drop in February, well its the 3rd. Chill.
    These are the type of people who should wait for a stable release, because when it has bugs or messes their phone up they'll really flip out.
    ...
    And to the comments here... just leave. You'll be better served with a shiny new iPhone. This OS is clearly just not for you.
  • With the obvious exception of the comments agreeing with the post.
  • I worry Gabe will stop responding on Twitter when the WP idiot horde starts spamming him with their typical crying like below that tweet. They already made Joe Belfiore stop replying on Twitter by spamming him with nonstop embarrassing trash. It's been so nice with only people using the desktop preview tweeting pertinent questions at gabe. It got infinitely worse already after the masses downloaded TP after their latest event :(
  • Gabe is a good guy and very helpful with all the insider stuff and yes he should be treated with respect.
  • I love lamp.
  • Coming soon!
  • Thank you!
  • Your welcome. I worked hard on whatever it tis your thanking me for.
  • Lol
  • What about his welcome?   If you're going to give people grief about their spelling, you might want to make sure yours is top notch. ;)   On Topic: Didn't think it would be tomorrow, so no love lost here. February is still the only thing stated, so we've got another possible 25 days of waiting.
  • Windows 10
    February 10
  • If it goes anything like HL3, I ain't expecting anything till 3010
  • illuminati confirmed
  • Now there's an idea, 2tomtom. Who knows if it's gonna be then though. The question for me is whether or not I should go for it with my 1520, or snap up a backup/tester phone....
  • I'm on a phone man that autocorrects like he's Mr. Merriam Webster, screwing up me words.
  • We'll still get it LOL :D faith is strong
  • The force is strong with this one ^^
  • Rumor that the update came yesterday
  • Bring it on:)
  • That's tomorrow soo probably not
  • Maybe feb 5!!!!!
  • Or Feb 6!!!!
  • Or Feb 7!!!
  • Or Feb. 31st!
  • Has no one corrected you yet? Lol. I bet you did that to see if anyone would notice.
  • Or Soon™
  • Or Feb 29th!!
  • Or Feb 8!!!
  • Or Feb 10 for Windows 10
  • Or Feb 10 for Windows 10
  • Or Feb 10 for Windows 10
  • You dont say it 3 times.....
  • chanting "or Feb 10 for Windows 10" is not the same as saying 3 times
  • But, but, someone on Facebook told me that if you post it enough times and then press F20 while using a model F IBM keyboard it's gonna make it true... :)
  • LIKE THIS POST AND MS IS GOING TO RELEASE IT TOMORROW !!!  And cure cancer and all that. World peace, etc, etc.
  • LOL bad reception and would not go through, though it did, x3. Won't remove as it will make your comments irrelevant.....
  • Hahahahaha and someone 'someone' thought you were chanting xD lmao
  • Maybe its like on Betelgeuse, say it three times and it appears... :)
  • You're right... You say it 10 times!!
  • Omfg u said it 3 times!!! HL3 CONFIRMED!!!!!!!!!
  • Seems chantier
  • Well, it's 4/2 already for me (after 12pm) and still nothing! :P
  • Bloody marry x3 (mirror in front with a candle in hands)
  • "Mary"
    otherwise you end up married!
  • Sad face... :-(
  • Realy
  • Try, really. The spelling works better.
  • Currekt meh if em rong. Mye speling ws oll wel nd purfekt, rite?
  • Lol
  • Try, using punctuation that's required. Your comma isn't.
  • Look it up, it is an Oxford comma. And, who cares? You can read, write? (get it, write?, oh forget it) just laugh.
  • The Wright brothers object!
  • Lol
  • No, that is not an Oxford comma. (No comma-delimited items in a series were harmed in the making of this comment.)
  • In this case people correcting others are not "Grammar Nazi"
    they are "Grammar Commando"
  • I believe Mr Rubino told you all to relax and it will arrive when they're ready.
  • Yeah thought so
  • Problem is they never seen too be ready...
  • But when? How long do we have to waiting? Like 1000 years more? Ahh this thing just fuck up everything! They shouldn't have to tell us the date, then easily said it's a 'rumor' da fcuk? Well it's actually the date they had told us.
  • My reply somehow jumped to the wrong post...
  • Okay, I'm relaxing. My 2 year old asleep on my shoulder and me about to fall asleep in the rocker.
  • Sounds pleasant.
  • On the one hand, its neat to see people so excited.  Particularly since I'm surrounded by people who know nothing about what Microsoft is doing and instead just criticize them for their contribution to computing in a nostalgic manner.  On the other hand, it's sad to see people using such base language for no other purpose than to cause conflict.  It distracts from both the news and enthusiasm (or lack thereof).
  • You squashed the rumor for me before I even got a chance to see the actual rumor itself. I feel like I missed out.
  • Rumour.
  • Roomur
  • color vs colour ? sounds Bretish...
  • It's the 5th then!
  • Lol!
  • Yeah, ill just hold on to that hope.
  • Fffffuck
  • Excellent enthusiasm, comrad. Next time, spell it right.
  • You can try better and fix your reply up ^
  • He stutters! How speechist of you!
  • Next time, spell "comrade" right. :p
  • Damn autocorrect... You sure?
  • Yes, you are. I stand corrected in me spellin.
  • Spellin? You are under arrest!
  • Did it on purpose, I did.
  • Are you the grammar police out here, man?
  • Hehe! right.
  • Correction :::: Fffffffuuuckkkk yyyouuu!!!!!
  • Excellent.
  • Be nice. Clearly he stutters and can't help it.
  • It's da keyboard - I aölways blame da kb!
  • See, I'm not alone here.
  • Come on! Its my birthday tomorrow!
  • Happy Bday..! :P
  • Happy birthday for tomorrow
  • It's my birthday TODAY. Old enough to drink!
  • Well cudos! (not that age really stops people from drinking anyway)
  • youth?
    or do mean that there's also an upper limit like 120?
  • Happy birthday.
  • Happy birth-date!
  • Happy birthday. Have I nice day.
  • Happy birthday
  • it'll come on valentines day. ;)
  • Certainly, you mean cum.
  • Good one ;)
  • Thank you.
  • And it will brick our phones and break our hearts... Valentine's Day indeed.
  • Not very popular with the girls huh !
  • Oh, I am popular with the girls. Many children from different women to prove it. Oh my, the child support orders. Hard to keep em straight.
  • Daddy?
  • Lol
  • Hahah .. They removed your comment for the robotic bitch
  • I know. Probably sent me an email threatening to ban me....again. Don't know why!
  • FFFF*** :@
  • Relaxed!! ahhhhhhhh...
  • It will probably be at the end of February. P.S. One thing I didn't understood quite a bit. Are we going to lose our native SMS Messaging app with Windows 10 release?
  • Yes, it will be separate app that will receive updates via market, same as hangouts on Android.
  • It still counts as native. Just like music.
  • kinda, its not going to be as it is now, it will be one similar to how facebook was, except now, its skype.   My personal hope is that they open this up in time for other apps to use, imagine, programs like whatsapp and IM+, all beingn used without even openning the app.. it would be awesome
  • I don't like that idea. Losing all current SMS messages that are synced in cloud is just Sh!T. So we are not getting any preinstalled app, we'll have to search on our own? @Bojan Malinovic hvala ;)
  • If it means I can one day reply to texts on my phone using Skype on my desktop, i'll take the trade off.
  • what... STOP THAT DOOM AND GLOOM   no one hated it when fb was built in, why does skype taking its place suddenly mean its going to suck? aslo, it WILL be included, i dont know how in the fuck you got that it wont from what I said.
  • I think there is a misunderstanding between us. I like the fact that Skype will come built in, but what I don't like is ''losing synced SMS messages from cloud'' and searching another app for native messaging in Store. If it will already come pre-installed I don't see a reason for not syncing cloud messages.
  • @BataBole Nema na cemu. :)
  • En ymmärtänyt sanaakaan! :-/
  • Will we loose all our sms data from 8.1 when upgrading ?
  • If u backed it up then no need to worry
  • Probably now we'll have a splash screen just to send an SMS .... Scared
  • That would be a god-awful implementation. But then again, they did it to the 'native' Calendar app, and to Music, so it's not beyond the realm of possibility.
  • Ehh? Run it once, dont close it, never see it again til you reset your phone...
  • Why does it have to be rumours?! I want this now! No more waiting!
  • Are u the p.m.
  • Patience!!!
  • Thanks!!!!
  • what's the rush, it's not like MS has the smallest marketshare, slowest OS cadence, least apps, and least features of anybody, on top of less OEMs and less carrier support. Hey man when the list of your mediocrities dial to 11, what's another month, or two, in fact, does anybody care anymore? hello? *crickets* get a grip and ship, or quit!
  • Well considering this is only a Technical Preview build anyway, all of the 'points' you just made are moot. Because the average consumer won't be going anywhere near it.
  • And yet here you are using phone with OS that has smallest market share, least apps and least carrier support...
  • Because Nokia.
  • so? everything he stated was a fact. just because you use windows phone doesn't make any of those things untrue. what a stupid, fanboyish comment
  • I'm pretty sure Apple has fewer OEMs than Microsoft. Nay, I'm certain.
  • Ooooooh nicely realized
  • Pretty sure the sold 70 million phones. How many WP?
  • 10M for Microsoft, not sure about other OEMs. I was just being smart, don't get your knickers in a twist.
  • yes because of deals they make with carriers that they have to buy a shitload to be able to sell iphones in the first place.
  • Delayed as Seahawks got bit by Patriots :-)
  • Suarez plays for the Patriots?
  • U mean Luiz Suarez?
  • LOL
  • That there is painful.
  • Oh God!
  • Oh Devil!
  • Oh Castiel! Wait, what?
  • Good to know they are clarifying things for us, better than having rumors circulating the internet.
  • I never thought they stated the 4th outright. They just said after the superbowl. For me that means Feb. 2 - infinity.
  • They said after the "Seahawks win the superbowl".  So we might be waiting a while now. 
  • Well the Seahawks didnt win so maybe we're not getting it at all. Or maybe when they win in the next superbowl.. That would be on 2016 right?? Right?!!! Hahaha sarcasm**
  • Seahawks won last year. Therefore it's a year overdue.
  • He should have asked Cortan who was going to win before he made that statement on stage.
  • They never said after the Seahawks win the Superbowl, they just said after the Superbowl.
  • I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic. :)
  • He replied to a tweet saying if seahawks win by some virtually impossible score that they'd release it immediately.    
  • Some blog posted a rumor that it would be the 4th. No one got the info from Microsoft.
  • Until January 2016 they're still on the mark.
  • He said after superbowl, and in February. So clearly it means anytime between 2/1 and 2/28 *rollseyes*
  • the inside page says it coming in Feb. it will hit sometime between now and the 19th.
  • ZOMG There are 28 months in a year now!
  • Lol America guy
  • I've looked up the dates in the internet and it seems that we have even 31 months!
    Odd!
    But no more than 12 days a month?
     
  • :c (but also c: now that mostly everyone will finally can it.)
  • A guy with a moustache and a magnet!
  • LOL
  • Oh you back again! Good to see you :)
  • Eish
  • And i knew that already..
  • You guys need to chill lol
  • Noooooo!
  • Noooooooooooooooo haha
  • Wasn't expecting the 4th by far but was hoping for a surprise
  • You.....ARE the father! ....Surprise!!!!
  • Lol
  • and your son is called "Luke"
  • Enjoy and be happy coz February has only 28 days! On a positive note we will have to wait a couple of days less.
  • From the videos of the windows 10 event and the videos that Microsoft showd in their Chanel i noticed that the windows 10 for phones is very inconsistent and it must contains alot of bugs in comparison with the older prerelease versions of windows phone that we know in the developer preview programs
  • You saw bugs ?
  • Like spiders crawling on the screen and stuff... was terrifying!
  • I only saw the Web...and it was like....like... World Wide!
     
  • This isn't the developer preview program. At all.
  • Dude, a technical preview is VERY different from "preview for developers"
  • more bugs?
  • Of course! Preview for developers is just FINISHED software that hasn't gone through carrier approval
  • The first few WP 8.1 PfD builds back in 2014 were pretty buggy...
  • Guess that Logan guy was right, its just a stupid rumor....
  • Hey, he didn't say anything about Feb 5th ;-)
  • c: or the 6th...
  • Rumors, rumors, rumors. What else is new?
  • That's it. I'm gonna kill my gf. Cause I can.
  • Lol you don't mean that.
  • Why not?
  • Dude, wtf is wrong with u, don't even joke abt that kinda shit
  • I don't joke. Obviously. ;)
  • Wouldn't it be hilarious if his "gf" saw this tho?
  • Nope. But it was hilarious how she was screaming (:
  • Do it before the 14th and save the money for the valentines gift.
  • I will prolly give her a heart.
    A real one.
    From a rat.
  • That escalated quickly.
  • Like my knife on her chest.
    Right down, on her breast.
  • The first preview will be out as soon as the SEAHAWKS win the game?
    So, could be out tumoro...!!
    P.S: It's already 4th in India.. :P
  • They lost the game, so Microsoft can delay Windows 10 by a year...
  • I'm surprised this illusion-breaking news was not written by Rubino. Still, I want to see that on my phone im getting tired everyday more and more of the 'dark and light' themes. Transparent tiles come to daddy. Microsoft and joe is trolling and playing with us :( haha
  • He's on vacation. http://www.windowscentral.com/editors-desk-taking-break-doldrums-winter
  • Booo
  • Who?
  • You!
  • I'm fully upto date on Denim on UK 930 EE and have an update pending, I wonder what it could be, probably just a minor thing but you never know
  • I knew it!!!
    Rubino wouldn't go on vacation if he didn't already now it's not coming out this week....
  • Why don't they just give me the dam update already....gad dam it I am ready to hibernate until some says in my ear "windows 10 preview is here".
  • Windows 10 Valentine Version
  • Sounds like Gabe found some major bugs , we probably don't want that build anyway :)
  • Are you talking about WIndows 10 or Half-Life 3?
  • A sign of intelligent life in this site after all.
  • Just a developer, I deal with this scenario daily ;)
  • give the internal testers at ms time to test run the build that was released today, im sure if no major show stopper bug shows up in testing they will release that build in some form.
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh giff me sum Windows 10
  • but what joe belfiore said was right or not? he said one ot two weeks. i assume it should come in that period as soon as possible.
  • Why don't they tell a date and that's it, it would make the waiting easier
  • Because they shouldn't rush themselves, unless you want some crappy, buggy build. They'll release it when it's ready.
  • Probably the 4th of February 2016, since it was first rumored to be released after the Seahawks Win the Superbowl which they didn't this year.
  • Does anyone know if all Windows Phone 8.1 phones going to be updated to Windows Phone 10?  Or just Lumias or soemthing like that?  
  • At least all "modern" Lumias can be updated to Windows 10. This was covered by WC some time ago...
  • All of them
  • If I upgrade icon to 10 will I get denim?????
  • You do realise that Denim is a firmware and Windows an OS?
  • Well said Richard Devine.
    Thank You...
  • I see the video or specs being released, at the most, tomorrow. But more than likely nothing.
  • But Terry Meyerson said clear at the event. He said after the seahawks win the superball. They didn't win so we not getting it.
  • ^ THAT ^
  • You know it's pretty effortless these days to share and communicate all over these days with Windows Phone, so it actually takes very little effort to short these rumors... It literally takes nothing away from my normal daily life =P
  • Should be out 2nd week of feb
  • Please don't start more rumours.
  • Still waiting for Denim on my unlocked 930 (Brazil). When I get that, theeen I will think about W10
  • Hahahahhahahahhaha LOL LOUD with Mistaken Identity! HuAhUaHuAHuAhUa
  • Windows 10 = 10th, in my rumour :)
  • Gud 1
  • In all fairness they did say sometime after the Super Bowl. It's technically now after the Super Bowl. Just saying.
  • I can wait a year for Win 10 :)
  • I'll be surprised if we don't get the preview this week ;) See Belfiore's tweet from Jan 26th https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/status/559844130839203840
  • I keep my hopes on Monday, oh Monday!
  • Looks like those folks internal to MS get its today, http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-technical-preview-for-phones-build-8151249241-being-seeded-to-select-testers
  • Yea that's probably what Gabe Aul is talking about in this tweet he just posted: (excerpt) "As builds progress through internal rings we eval vs. criteria. Once a build meets ALL - it goes out. which means that we cannot tell a precise date."
  • Unless release DENIM!
  • *sigh* Us Windows Phones fans are getting very good at waiting.
  • When did rumors make it into newsfeeds? News is different than rumors.  
  • Seems faster...
  • 4th of August should be just good enough to update, I hope..
  • Well, @Gabe_Aul or @dearMicrosoft, you keep creating better apps for iOS and Android and keep us waiting. *sarcasm*
  • Nah february 4 seems like a bad release date. But the 5 is good cause it's my Birthday
  • Happy b'day in advance....... Hope they give it in advance
  • Haha, happy birthday LTEP
  • I bet on 30th February
  • No comment.
  • 29th* ;)
  • Well I'll be happy when it does arrive.... Hopefully before the weekend
  • Before Weekend ?? Must be kidding !!!! i dont hope So !!! :P
  • Well, Relieved Now :)  this year's valentines special would be Windows 10 and its Lovely Fans !!!
  • Noooooo
  • Good
  • Microsoft never should have told us until the day its released because its like Christmas for a bunch of 7year olds we just dont want to wait any longer
  • I agree with your comment about 'a bunch of 7 year olds'... Many commenters are probably adults but have the attitudes and patience of a 7 year old. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinions but most (not all) leave childish comments.
  • You do know that it's impolite to point that out, do you?
  • What about this: Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones build 8.15.12492.41 being seeded to select testers
  • I don't believe that they can release anything as an Icon owner. Microsoft these days talks big game but produce nothing.
  • I think it should release on Feb 4th only.
  • and yet it is now being released to certain testers http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-10-technical-preview-for-phones-build...
  • Another Rumor !! ??? !!!! Oh god !!
  • god? Why would she care?
  • Anyone thinking that perhaps its not yet ready to be set free? I'd rather wait for a stable build that actually works than install half baked bits that give me nothing but issues on a device I depend on more than any other (well except maybe my Xbox one... Maybe :-). It'll come when its ready. Till then ill wait patiently. I'll be honest though. I can't wait!
  • Well said that man, or women, common sense prevails.
  • Told you!!! I wrote this week's ago when everyone was freaking out!! Feb 4th! Cause Microsoft sends out updates on THURSDAYS!! :)
  • Ms does need to do something though we wait for basic updates that take ages, then we're at the mercy of the rip off carriers to see if they want to bother their arses putting it out!!! Kiss my arse updates that the apple and robot have had since go! Ms should push these out...somehow...there is always a way!
    Peter
    Liverpool
  • Basic?
  • Weep. Ah well. We will see. I hope this will mean it is a bit more stable than w10 tp... So I can use it on my normal phone..
  • "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." LOL
  • It feels that way!
  • So disappoint even though I know it is just a rumor. But keep calm and waiting....
  • On another note, Verizon updated the galaxy S5 to lollipop. My icon says f you Verizon.
  • People don't have patience
  • He was talking about a video preview, not the actual preview for the update.
  • All wp people have patience its the nature of the beast
  • I'm seriously tired of WP and it's SOONTM slogan.   
  • Never heard of it ™
  • Does anyone know what apps work or don't work if I install this when it comes out? Asking for my Lumia Icon...
  • Why not?
  • Here's a protip: if that other site post a rumor and WPCentral doesn't, you don't have to waste your time writing to WPCentral about that rumor. WPCentral will write about it when/if they confirm it.
  • Here's a mastertip: WPCentral got renamed to Windows Central ages ago.
  • I'll refer to the site as WMExperts from now on just for you guy.
  • Lol
  • Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so it means another 6 weeks of waiting for spring, Denim, Windows 10 preview for phones, etc etc.
  • The 4th is, obviously "just a rumor", but I have a feeling it will be coming in the first half of the month...
  • I ve been using an iphone 6 for work, they are boring and bland just no life in them I cannot understand how ms get the marketing of wp so wrong to give such poor sales number. WP is fresh and original AND can evolve unlike the rows of icons on the other two
  • Dont get it either man
  • Sad
  • +M8
  • The point of having an iPhone isn't to stare at the home screen, it's made to lose yourself in the millions of best in class apps & games. 
  • Thank you Richard.
  • People are so ... anxious.
  • Hope it does, but do we wait then for the carrier to maybe or maybe not put it out? If not then whey cant they, ms put denim out in the same way?
  • I guess it's coming on the 29th of February
  • February 3 1/2
  • So basically he said dont get our hopes up. It could still be the 4th when it comes *crossing fingers*
  • Microsoft used to like to do releases of products on Tuesdays, but lately it has been Thursdays.  So I am going to say the 5th of February.  If I am wrong, well then my ex was right, about me always being wrong. Oh well.
  • Lol sounds like she got to you...
  • I just assumed this would die down once the people who took "after the Seahawks win" literally and were expecting them to release the preview after the game (LOL) realized that wasn't going to happen. I should've known better. 
  • despite the launch date for the preview for phones I wonder if we need/want we could revert to eindows phone 8.1 like in windows pc's the latest build you are able to revert just with a few clicks
  • Yes if ur on a lumia
  • Sounds great... I'm on a lumia :P
  • Download Microsoft Recovery Tool. You can flash your phone back to production ROM if you want.
  • Welp. Moving on here guys. Nothing to see.
  • Waiting
  • Darn that's my day off would have been nut butter if it happened
  • After a decade na
  • What I want to know is, how does Microsoft get the Project My Screen wired connection to work at their events but no matter what most of us do, we cannot locally project our screens to our own computers? Even after properly following directions, drivers and updates, the Project My Screen app is not reliable at all yet it just "works" when Microsoft uses it.
  • But you can connect to smart TV and project your screen on your smart tv. Just you need to connect your tv with ur home WiFi and mobile too. Only "Lumia play to" application is required to project ur screen (Lumia play to is for Lumia phones only, not for tv)
  • You need the project my screen app
  • You can do it easily, I do that and it works very reliably trust me. All you need is project my screen desktop app. Once you connect your phone to PC via USB you have to allow project my screen access from your phone and you're good to go. Hope it helps and if you got any problem PM me :) and also you can search for step by step tutorial at Windows central or any other site.
  • c'mon ms...
  • Cant wait :D
  • I am pretty tired of all the waiting. No denim, no windows 10 I'm fed up constantly checking insider app.... They are just talking big time!
  • Their only words were "in February" and it has been literally 3 DAYS. You're your own problem, not Microsoft. Grow up and stop worrying about a phone update, dude.
  • Be fast Microsoft u r working like loosers
  • Show us the OS you've made? I'd say they're working pretty fast.
  • I think they're a much tighter team than they used to be.
  • Do I detect an android user here? Do you want fast and sloppy work? If you do count me out. I rather wait a few more days/weeks the to have a laggy buggy os.
    But this is just me
  • ;-;
  • there will be no release of the previous version of Windows 10 for mobile , until Joe Belfiore present the video that is pending showing all the features of the new OS for mobile. I say that Windows 10 for mobile comes within a week ( February 10 )
  • First world problems...sheesh. Some people are like the whiny kids in the back seat constantly asking, "Are we there yet?".  Those whiners that seem to think that it's appropriate to use profanity to describe Microsoft need to chill out. Do us all a favor and take your meds, please. 
  • Pinging Microsoft is my normal life! Casey on! LOL
  • Who set the blue picture under the blue tiles?! What a tasteless idea! Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Come on peeps it's just software for a phone.
  • Mistaken Identity's writing is very Moody
  • I just received a phone call from a big wig at MS named Shatya Nutella. He said the Windows 10 launch has been scrubbed with no plans to set a new date or something.
  • Wow. Just wow. I hope you didn't spend a lot of time thinking about that comment Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Will Windows 10 require Denim on my Icon?
  • No, windows insider for tech preview and windows developer for stable one.
  • people need to stop listening to wmpu in the case of rumours... or in general
  • Some of their sources are quite interesting and at the same time fairly accurate. I usually see others sites follow their suit... So wmpu is a legitimate site. By the way, they said rumors. therefore shouldn't be seen as fact.
  • I think it's hilarious that windows central puts out the fires started by wmpu
    Like big brother cleaning up for mischievous little bro.
    I still check both sites because im a rumor junkie bur I always fact check with windows central
  • In fairness, this has happened before.  Recently, in fact
    https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/559914567078133760 - January 26, Gabe states that RSAT won't be coming until the new version of Server. https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/560619690930606081 - Two days later, RSAT for Windows 10 is available.
     
  • The waiting is KILLING ME!! X(
  • Windows 10? Denim? Hell, thanks to Verizon I don't even have the "official" Cyan yet.
  • Raise your middle finger up for Verizon :)
  • :(
  • Swearing is like it or not part of the language. that said, I learned to swear in the Canadian Military... Now that's swearing!!!!
  • Wait wait wait wait wait wait.... Waiting
  • I absolutely loathe apple, but they get their ios update and product releases just right. For the ios update you can normally get it within a couple of days of the event and the hardware within a couple of weeks to a month after the event. Look at Windows Phone on the other hand.......
  • http://wmpoweruser.com/wp-build-8-15-12492-is-in-fact-windows-10/?utm_so...
  • Not reported by WC, so not true. WMPU also started this rumour.
  • Its probably good to let them get it right don't need the same type of errors on big windows on smaller windows plus I want a feature packed update not just a few stuff here and there
  • just because they said the Feb 4th rumor is such, does not mean that Feb 5th wont be the release.   Lets start a new rumor #Feb5_Win10PreviewForPhone
  • There is no way Microsoft has Windows 10 Mobile ready by the end of February. Half of what they showed recently was a canned demo or screenshots. granted they were probably a little farther along than what they demoed, but no way. No way they are going to be ready to go anytime soon. I know it's a different beast, but they can't even coordinate (with carriers) a reasonable rollout of firmware for their own devices. Aren't there even unlocked phones that still don't have Denim?
  • Still waiting for unlocked 830 UK
  • its already stated on the windows 10 insider webpage that its coming in Feb. And the denim update is doing alot better than andriods lollipop thing.
  • Unlocked 630 still waiting CV UK. Website shows Denim available, but phone update shows "Up to date" on Cyan.
  • Neon reports MS have sent update to 1000 testers.
  • Yep
  • It'll be here soon.
    Will it require denim?
    Will all current apps work or need updating to universal?
  • Probably
    Probably
    Probably not all will work.
  • http://wmpoweruser.com/wp-build-8-15-12492-is-in-fact-windows-10/ just now Microsoft has pushed windows phone 10 to 1000 of their inhouse employees
  • Seems faster..
  • Shit! Would've been nice.
  • Still waiting for Denim on AT&T 1520!
  • ^........eeyep
  • AT&T have stated that denim will be released soon.
  • Ky mikrosofti e ka dhi krejt muhabetin, tani per windows 11 duhet te presim qe te dali ne 2030
  • ....so your telling me there's a chance!
  • Darn, I don't get to see yet if my 521 will be able to run it or to what capacity.
  • Dam!
  • http://m.pocketnow.com/2015/02/03/windows-10-phone-preview-2. This should be a Windows Central article. I get the best news from pocketnow. Shame!
  • Overdoing it, aka, why would we release anything on a Wednesday? Let's go for Friday and 2/6 so everyone has enough time to blog the heck out it over the weekend and be relavent for the next week's news cycle. Actually, that would work better for me but in truth, I'm upgrading the first minute I can.
  • Soon
  • Is it so hard to wait for the news to arrive to windows central? They usualy are very fast and reliable.
    I'm excited too but I do know how to wait.
    Let ms take their time to lauch the preview with less bugs as possible
  • I can't have that greatness of windows 10. There is problem updating error Installing. Phone
  • First things first. Need to support ios & android more.
  • What?
  • Seems that I'm not the only one that does not understand the meaning of that sentence
  • Hey, lets start a rumor about the Denim update releasing in the US on February 7th..... :-D
  • Nice one
  • That's not surprising at all. Microsoft does this everytime when they promise about something earlier.
  • Noooooooooooooo
  • So, maybe we will actually see Denim for the ICON /929 Before Windows 10 ?Maybe... ​I'm still betting not...
  • Concidering the Seahawks lost the SuperBowl we could be in for a long wait.
  • Normal life?? This. is. life.
  • http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/store/app/tileart/89ce0a3b-3647-4ce0-8...
  • http://windowscentral.com/commenting-guidelines
  • If it happens it does
  • Waiting for windows phone 10 gays it's really insider app gives us windows phone 10 OS
  • I'm not sure how these rumors start anyway. Unless you get an official Microsoft press release,  it isn't official. It'll be released.....when Microsoft releases it.  Don't try to read the tea leaves of what one guy, who may work in Redmond seems to infer, or not, on his/her Twitter post/blog/whatever, or what you heard around the water cooler.
  • Seahawks didn't win the superbowl! So....
  • Patience!!
  • Will I lose the features of Lumia denim if I update to Windows 10?
  • Denim is a firmware and Windows an OS...
  • Whaaaaaat?
  • :-(((((
  • I think Valentines Day
  • That would be Windows 14.
  • Oohhh sshhhiiiittttt.
  • Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones is coming in February ???? maybe February 2016 XD
  • Feb 14th .. Show some windowslove
  • It will come on 6th-10th Feb definitely. Because, wp8.1 also came in this time frame! Hoping for the best!
  • @Richard Devine:
    Although you're definitely spot-on on the "carry on" statement, you seem to have forgot the as important "keep calm" part.
    I'm as eager as everyone else to know what Windows 10 has in store for phones, but I really don't get this desperate rumor-mongering.
  • Please MS pimp my OS NOW!
  • And so I'm very sure that the end of the world is not here yet
  • Has anyone else noticed that the windows insider app for windows phone 8 now allows login with a microsoft account and not just a domain account? it also tells me I have no builds available... maybe news afoot??
