Here is what is new in Windows 10 Technical Preview 10051 for Phones

Microsoft has now published the changelog of all the big new features and improvements in today's update for the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones.

Windows 10 for phone Build 10051 contains numerous new improvements. Below we are highlighting the main changes.

  • Project Spartan: An early version of Project Spartan is available in this flight. It uses our new rendering engine to give greater interoperability with the modern mobile web, and includes early versions of Reading View and Reading List. For now, Project Spartan is not the default browser, and exists side-by-side with IE11. You can find it in the All Apps list and pin it to your Start Screen from there. Please send feedback on sites and design. For more details on Project Spartan on the phone – see this blog post. Be sure to also check out this blog post from Joe.
  • New mail and calendar apps: Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar are the new built-in mail and calendar universal apps for Windows 10. These new apps bring a fresh UI, with a toggle to freely move between your email and calendar without returning to the Start screen. Outlook Mail includes customizable Swipe Gestures, letting you swipe right or left to take actions like delete, flag, move or mark as read/unread. Also check out the new email authoring experience. Outlook Mail leverages the familiar capabilities of Word to create a richer email experience. You can do formatting tricks like inserting tables, adding pictures and using bullets and text. Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar connects to Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Google Calendar, Yahoo!, IMAP, POP and other popular accounts. Please note that to add or remove accounts in Outlook Mail and Outlook Calendar, you do so within these apps. The Email + accounts page has been removed from the Settings app.
  • New Phone and Messaging apps: You'll see our new Phone and Messaging apps in this build. Give them a try and let us know what you think. The Messaging app has a new visual design. You can also easily upgrade from a messaging conversation to a voice call with one click of the phone icon in the new app bar. Note: If you are updating a phone from Build 9941 – please see below for a known issue regarding MMS that will require you to go use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1 first and upgrade to this build in order to have MMS working on your phone.
  • New People app: The new universal People app has a new visual design but will continue to be the comprehensive list of all your contacts across the services you care about such as Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Facebook, etc. You'll be able to easily manage all your contacts and quickly connect with them.
  • New Maps app: The first preview of our new universal Maps app on phone is now available. Maps offers you the features and tools you need to explore and navigate the world. This includes the best maps, aerial imagery, rich local search data, and voice guided navigation experiences from both Bing Maps and HERE maps, integrated together for the first time into a single app for Windows.
  • Updated App Switcher: Check out the updated app switcher by pressing and holding the back button on your phone to see your recently used apps. We've added support for landscape when invoked from an app being viewed in landscape. For large phones like the Lumia 1520, we've introduced a new grid layout so you can be more efficient at switching between apps. And we've extended the length of recently used apps to 15.

Some things we've fixed

  • We've updated the keyboard layout based on your feedback. The keyboard layout now has period, comma and emoji keys on first page of keyboard. Language switching is enabled by press-and-hold on the &123 key. There is also an option to replace the emoji key with the language switching key.
  • We've fixed the Cortana icon resolution so it now scales with tile size.
  • We've fixed the issue where the Photos app would fail to launch periodically when attempting to add a photo attachment to an email, OneNote or Facebook item.
  • We've fixed the issue where the Microsoft Band wouldn't sync with your phone after upgrading to Windows 10.
  • The Photos app's tile will now pick up the phone's theme color before it's launched and then start showing pictures from your collection including OneDrive in the Live tile.

As soon as we have finished downloading our updates, we will post a screenshot gallery, hands-on video, and more details about some of the new individual components of today's update! Stay tuned.

  • My phone is still stuck on downloading previous version!!!
  • 1/2 Okay, here's what's going on: For phones on 9941 already, just go to Settings > Update and you can DL now https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/586580575818887168
  • Wait for few mins, gab tweeted about the TP server error but those who have wm10 already , they get the update and the new users have to wait for few minutes
  • This thread and this issue is just like the day the tech previews came out.... Another live Load Test!! :)
  • Update: The provisioning data is still being updated. This should be a 2 minute process and it has been going for 40mins. Debugging.... So the cookies are not ready as yet!!
  • my insiders app is crashing every time I'm checking for update! NEED HELP :'(
  • Same here. Maybe we gotta wait sometime more.
  • Well I'm gonna wait for the Developer Preview! Can't wait to see all the hands on video :D

  • Yep! Same here... Too many people slamming the server...
  • This would have been a great time to introduce P2P protocol. But, I'm not sure if that will be applicable to phone updates.
  • Even if they did introduce it.  You would need to be running this version of Windows 10 to see the benefit.
  • Gabe just announced on Twitter they are aware of the error. They are fixing it.
  • Ugh, seriously...in THIS day and age? *smh* =/

  • I am already on the Preview and it says my phone is up to date. :/
    Will definitely have to wait a while.
  • It isn't through developer preview app... You have to opt into windows insider, then download the app for it and then log in with the account. It will then tell you if there are any new builds
  • I don't think I know that? -_-
  • From your comment it says you're on the Preview app, not the Insider app.
  • Same here.
  • How much data??
  • Gab tweeted about it. It should be around 450mb
  • Friends have patience according to latest tweet of Gabriel aul the ms are working over the server issue .....so as we have waited 2 months why cant we wait another 10 15 min more ....as this is techical problem so let them have repaired that have make us available ....best of luck to all and have a patience guys ...

  • It's nice design
  • Anyone else getting server error when trying to download the preview? I'm on a 520
  • Same here
  • Same here
  • I guess we just got to wait a little then
  • Any solutions guys?
  • Server error :(
  • Server error
  • I'll try in a few hours, keep getting server problems
  • Server busy....
  • One of the known issue is "Data connections can’t be disabled."
    What does that mean? Data Connection will be on 24x7 and we can't switch it off? if that is the case then I'm scared of high phone bill :-/
  • No, it just means the toggle to turn of dat doesn't work, not that it will consume data constantly. If you are connected to wifi that will still be the priority.
  • Same here
  • server error
  • Cue hamburger button complaints lol I am patiently waiting for the screenshots and hands on video. :)
  • I just keep getting server timeouts, grrrr. Could everyone just stop for a few so I can download it  :D
  • Why don't you stop so I can download it. ;)
  • Cause I asked first lol. Looks like I won't be doing this build tho, I just read "Call + SMS filtering will not work after upgrade" for this build.
  • Same for you . I want it :P
  • That plea is very rich, I like that. I hope MSFT was not thinking folks would download, if they did and as such not provide enough bandwidth / server, big shame on them
  • Server error just means to many people are pulling it at the same time. I am sure once people start getting it installed, more will be able to download. Be patient, we will all get it today.
  • Just relax, and save all your data to the cloud to pass time. You never know what could happen...
  • Though I have only one Lumia, I'll still install it on my phone......hope its nt really buggy
  • Bad idea. It is. Check the known issues. Keep the Restore app handy ;)
  • Is it air???
  • I know it's not available for my 930 but it's loading like everyone else's, maybe they fixed it in time!!
  • I doubt it. That just means that the servers are so overloaded that it's taking a while to tell you that you can't get it.
  • Same here. I decided to try anyway and I am having the same issue.
  • When I click the get preview build it's showing a connection error prevent downloading program for you please Change date and time
  • Ms is fixing this problem as all of us have this issue
  • Wtf !! Please seeed.. :D
  • Lol +1320
  • Seed him more !
  • Hahahaha... :P
  • .......details on Project Spartan on the phone – see this blog post. Be sure to also check out this blog post from Joe. (He missed the links in the post above)
  • Same here
  • The same Server error :/ :( :(
  • It says my phone is up to date. Lumia 1020 (Rogers Canada), received neither Windows 10 for Phone, nor Denim.
  • for win 10 use Insider App.
  • Did you just do the regular update check? Because this is totally different. You might want to do some research.
  • Are you using the Windows Insider app?
  • Windows Insider app saying connection problem.  
  • Why didn't you include the bad points about the build that are mentioned in the blog post ? 
  • Are you downlodind from software update or from Preview for developers Alp
  • Windows Insider app.
  • Actually you are doing it from phone update. Haveing either the Preview for Developers, or the Insider app loaded, registered and turned on, points the update phone function to the appropriate source. So you go to phone update, and check for updates like you normally would.
  • Server error! wish everyone else could stop for 30 minutes... :)
  • Everyone but you right?  I mean, you should be the first person to be able to get this preview!
  • Yes!?
  • @Vincenzo happy birthday :)
  • Looks like their server would crash today!!
  • Getting error
  • Please guys stop your downloads for while so I can update too LOLOL :)
  • Lol
  • LOL. Will your apps work with this?
  • The Office Hub has been removed from this build. You won’t be able to open Word, Excel, PowerPoint or OneNote files in this build. Preview versions of the universal Office apps will be available in the coming weeks.... Guess I'll have to wait till then
  • This was the biggest drawback I saw on the blog post.  Pretty disappointing.  Hopefully the "coming weeks" doesn't mean another 8+ weeks before they are released!
  • Lol!!
  • Yea, I wondered if coming weeks meant two or fifty two? ;)  Kind of like wondering what the definition of 'soon' is.
  • I have a spare L520, I don't mind losing Office hub
  • Server error.Won't download.
  • Surprised so many people want a buggy OS to be beta-Testers for Msft. Some of us already have been beta testers with WP7. I've had enough. Will wait for a full release, thank you..
  • +830
  • How else will we know what we want? Seriously beta testers pave the road, and now we have a voice, I was a beta tester as you so put it with android 1.x and 2.x and 4.x, I had enough when a z3 out the box had google services crashing that to this day happens once or twice daily.
  • That's why I have a 920 and 928 to play with.   My Icon will be left alone.
  • this post is going to make record for number of comments :-) 
  • Let's see:)
  • Get "check date and time and internet connection" error. But all looks fine! Busy server I guess
  • always server error...
  • Server down. as expected ;-)
  • Just calm down people. Microsoft servers are being battered
  • Its saying check ur date and time on lumia 1020 even after everythinfs correct,am from india.
  • My phone is up to date it says when I check for an update (already am on the Tech Preview, Lumia 730)
  • Check for new builds from the Insider app.
  • Those already in the preview have to go to Settings>Update & Recovery>Phone Update>Check for updates, as per the blog.
  • Didn't read the blog. But do try from the Insider app.
  • Are you in the slow or fast ring?  Per Gabe Aul, this release is only for the fast ring.
  • Fast. Under about section of the Insider app it says Current status: Insider Builds- Fast.
  • I couldn't see that info in my app. Am I doing something wrong?  Luma 1520
  • Tap on those three dots at the right hand bottom corner and tap "About". It should be there.
  • yep server error!
  • Not just you..everyone is! :(
  • Maybe its the bcos too many people are trying to download it at the same time
  • server error in my lumia 820 claro costa rica
  • Everyone's facing server error!
    Lets hope the thing will fix in sometimes.
  • Gabe Aul confirms server problem on Twitter
  • Server
  • wait so the TP 1051 build just got released? and did microsoft expand the list of phons available to get it? I have a Nokia Lumia 928 and checked the other day thru the Insider app and it says there are no builds for my phone...
  • The build is gonna release in a while. No builds were out on thurday!
  • Um, it just came out today?
  • Same server error
  • Download complete!!! Waiting for some feedback though before installing :D
  • I was hoping for you to provide some feedback. :-)
  • Did you read the 'known issues' from blog post? Pretty major issues, I'll pass.
  • My insider app is telling me I have no build
  • Good lord people, exercise some patience. This is clearly a highly anticipated release, and its gonna take some time for all of us to download. Go grab a beer/coffee/tea/ whatever, and try again later. I'm pretty sure it'll still be available.
  • entirely agree, they must all go get beer so we can get the build :D  @GabeAul says: 1/2 Okay, here's what's going on: For phones on 9941 already, just go to Settings > Update and you can DL now  
  • Server error! What kind of launch is this?
  • Just wait & patience, this time server is too much busy, coz everyone eager to download windows 10
  • Not a big change log eh, good thing they picked up from what the desktop have. Hope they start to hit the gas and release faster build from now on. Keep it up MSFT!
  • Will "hey Cortana" continue to work on the 1520?
  • Of course it is working, I am using on my set Lumia 1520
  • Got windows insider app so is this live in uk
  • I think phones in India can't download....let's start...When in India?
  • Not just India, everywhere.  Gabe Aul says there is a bug in their server for phones downloading W10 for the first time.  Should be fixed shortly.
  • Dear joseph tell ur feedback to all of us
  • We're working on the Windows Insider Server error. Give us a few mins. https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/586579350985641984
  • Are you a blogger? You are giving some amazing info.
  • ...just an avid internet surfer!!
  • :B
  • Will I lose the ability to still take 4k video on my Lumia 1520.3 if I download this? That's my biggest concern.
  • server error ;(
  • Seems like EVERY lumia users are trying to download this update at the same time!
  • Thanks MS for leaving out my and other hundreds's 930s out again. Great job.
  • Calm down man... :)
  • You're not getting it for your 930 because of a critical bug with that device. Be patient and appreciate that they're not letting you brick your phone.
  • Everybody stop for download the preview cause server problem occur
  • Is 620 included in this build?
  • Every Lumia except 930, ICON & 640 XL
  • Thanks :)
  • yeah bruh!!!
  • Thanks. I will check again. :)
  • Thinking of trying this out, but before I do does anyone know how I can reset back to Windows 8.1 dev preview if I don't like it?
  • How big is the update if I may ask folks?
  • This build has some serious bugs as well. Obviously not installing and will wait for Windows 10 later this year. Happy testing people but do not use on your primary device. That's completely unsafe.
  • I'm trying to get it for my 521, connection error. Waiting for something much more stable for my daily driver 1020.
  • India walo hum Sabere karenge download santi se....
  • Raha nahi ja raha bhai .....
  • That is one crazy-looking screen on the phone in the picture. :)
  • Is it out? Cause my insider app won't load when I tap get preview builds. Just sits there blank while scrolling the loading dots... I even deleted and reinstalled it so hopefully it's something on their end that they are updating for this launch... I can't wait!!
  • And a lot of new bugs
  • Cool cool. Cool cool cool.
  • Wait & watch
  • Good luck to all of you guys! My 930 will have to wait some time... :)
  • Can I have it for lumia 620 ? Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • The Office Hub has been removed from this build. You won’t be able to open Word, Excel, PowerPoint or OneNote files in this build. Preview versions of the universal Office apps will be available in the coming weeks.

  • All of u wait for sme time and install it pls
  • This is it??? Damn I thought the whole UI gets a huge refresh
  • 1/2 Okay, here's what's going on: For phones on 9941 already, just go to Settings > Update and you can DL now according to gabrial aul
  • Wait & Patience
  • Wen in Indiana?
  • App showing time is not right
  • It's a request MS is not able to roll out these many update
  • Always showing server error....or no builds... . Lumia 830,.. Is there really any problem.
  • Server will be busy man... They will fix the issue
  • U guy who have first early build just go to setting and check for update ...
  • I'm particulary interested in how stable it is and how feature-complete (or close to WP) it is right now. I don't mind some crashes but it should be usable. And i hope its usable for day-2-day basis
  • Gabe says give them a cpl minutes to fix some issue they are having for new devices...
  • There is always an issue.
  • true...
  • Plz say me what amount storage for my phone having for update ?
  • Around 450 mb
  • As per Gabe...2-3 GB should be enough
  • There are 82000 per sec downloading
  • Does this build of wp10 being openvpn support?
  • What mean

  • Comment speed here is high! Great! Desperation! Seems like! .... !
  • Supported phones
  • Aeni mane downloading error aave 6.
  • Kyathi bhai?
  • I need to know how stable and usable on the 1520, it is, before I go forth. Want to make sure Cortana is functional. On my M8 Cortana was terrible. Everytime I clicked back I would have to start my search from scratch. I use Cortana on a regular basis.
  • I can't update - says connection error and time and date settings may ne incorrect, but they aren't. Anyone else with the same error message?
  • Yes alot of people having this problem..
  • Same for me dude..
  • I'll wait till office preview comes out. Absence of office apps, especially OneNote, is a no deal for me. I got all my notes in OneNote
  • Daniel or someone with the preview installed. Is it possible to have your photo in the signature line of your email now? Also, can you add a signature in your text messages now? That would be great!
  • I have a doubt before I update my only phone to Windows 10.. Does the 8.1 apps works like they use to in Windows 10??

  • Sure... It will works
  • Microsoft birthday gift to me

  • It showing error : A Connection error prevented us from downloading programs for you. Please check the date/time of your device and it's network connection and try again. Anyone facing the same error...?
  • what the hell  server error ??????????  
  • Seriously what the crap with the errors? Mine says "a connection error prevented us from downloading programs, so on and so forth"... One of the largest networks in the world at their disposal, and can't do an OS update without it "breaking the internet"? On a positive note - it's nice to see a platform with a worldwide average of around 3% can cause this much carnage ;)
  • A connection error preventing us from downloading programme for you. Please check the date/time of you device and its network connection and try again.... What does it mean ?
  • Read any of the 300 posts already posted.  No reason to ask a 301st time.
  • Same here. I even changed WiFi networks, and also changed location/region settings to the US in case its another "US only" thing, still getting the same error
  • Gabe is just uploading, that's why we all got server down message. ;-)

  • Wait, whats the error again? Can EVERYONE say it one more time??!?!
  • Lol
  • Anxious to try it out on Lumia 920, but I keep getting the connection error, check date/time. I receive this same error on a 1520.
  • It really makes me wonder if MS uses AZURE to scale these sites, seeing this error out as well as how painful the BUILD conference web site was while it crashed with the load is either bad planning or insufficient resources?
  • It's a shame they can't even roll it out without issues.
  • Nothing is shame...wait for next build....let them work...gotta 5 months for final build
  • Server ever
  • Gotta smell of a really fcking awesome next build after I know the issues....cause next build is gonna scale those down and thus the saga continues
  • For new phones does the ring option come after taking on the get preview builds???
  • Yes.
  • Is there a place to confirm with ring (Fast/Slow) I'm in?  I believe I did Fast, but don't see anywhere to verify.  
  • Hope a next build for slow rings will be out in a week without these issues...
  • No one knows...
  • Getting it now!
  • Is that available for lumia 535
  • Yes
  • Seriously folks, if you all cant grasp the concept of server overload with this prelease OS, and the already incessant fussing about waiting, just exactly what use are you going to be to MS as an unpaid beta tester!?!? Folks just need to pipe down and relax. You'll all have plenty of time to play with a "beta version". *hands a beer
  • The most used Things are not available to use.. Like office hub. ..data connection..flight mode .. Call block.. .. These things were needed.. But guys see from the point of view of Microsoft... They are giving builds for testing n developing apps.. N not for daily uses... ... But m still disappointed.. Didn't expect this form Microsoft .. Will wait for next build
  • The point of this is to test it in pieces, so no, you're/we're not going to get the whole OS. May I suggest reconsidering being a tester if you're not willing to accept the testing parameters?
  • Still can't download. Gabe says they're working on it on Twitter though. This is all too familiar, hauntingly like when SimCity was released and none of the servers would work for weeks. I doubt it would get into that length of not being able to download or connect. 
  • -930
  • Seems to be working now in the UK
  • downloading started in my lumia 730
  • Not sure there is a need to limit the new task switcher to big screens only... then again, if swiping to close doesn't work in it (as I assume it doesn't), not sure I would want it anyway. :P
  • Is it available for l620???????????????
  • How long till the server error gets fixed?
  • Around 2 hours.
  • Good change log,I guess.
  • So, I've been trying for almost an hour now and I still get the ' connection error/ time/date need to be adjusted'. But the time and date are correct. Anyone else still having this issue when trying to download the preview build?
  • even am getting the same error since past an hour and half. Guess everyone else is also getting the same error !
  • If you're trying to do a "first install", they have pulled access to the server until they can fix the provisioning records. Should be ready in a couple hours. 
  • Would be nice if the @ & .com buttons were always visible
  • Of course no.. They should be available when needed only, the problem is most app devs don't bother to make them available when needed and simply using plain text keyboard.
  • Hi guys, please can anyone confirm if the Lumia 640XL is getting this build today?
  • Yes
  • No, along with the 930 and Icon due to scaling issues.
  • I guess its a waiting game - I don't mind if it doesn't office hub - I have my windows tablet for all that, I guess im really anticipating this build. The windows 10 tech preview on pc os actually quite good, and im pretty sure we'll get the same office preview apps as in windows 10 for pc
  • The whole process has now been pushed back 2 hours for everyone except existing W10M users on the fast track: The server would be taken offline to provison the new dataset.
  • Everyone, please try after 2 hours.
  • It's like brats at Christmas morning here today. People, patience is a virtue, embrace it. This is a test of certain pieces of a whole, it's not quite BETA yet. Constructive feedback is what we need to give MS, not whiney quips.
  • Please add Picture Password. It will be a new and refreshing way to unlock the phone.
  • So many were complaining and saying they were going to stick with 8.1 because WP10 is "ugly". Pfft, I guess that went out the window with the quickness.
  • I think you did a little disservice by not posting the known issues in the article as well as all the exciting new stuff. There are some significant 'issues' that really should be read and understood by those thinking about putting this on their primary or only phone. http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/04/10/new-windows-10-technical-preview-build-now-available-for-phones/ Check out the issues before you install this and come back complaining there is no Office and you can't turn off data.........   There should actually be an entire article dedicated to these issues and the question "should I install this?"
  • my build is the 12564... not 10051... maybe because my phone is a Fast Update.. i don't know...
  • Can Lumia icon get it yet?
  • Server Error: A connection error prevented us from downloading programs for you. :-/ i think too many downloading or spamming sever :P is it available for india? i mean am using 1520 ... 
  • Aaaaaah, they LISTEN! The 123 key is baa-haa-haaa-haack! Also, does the new outlook app finally allow to attach arbitrary number of arbitrary files to emails?
  • I have always wanted MS to enable editing of type/name of phones numbers in contacts for those contacts with several numbers,
    What i am referring to are these
    'call mobile 1,
    call mobile 2,
    call work 1' e.t.c.
    I would want to put my names there!
  • Landscape Home Page View anyone?  
  • My windows insider showing server error .. Can anybody tell why . Need help ,.
  • I installed on both of my 1520s and here are some of the issues I have on both phones:
    ​1: Visual Voicemail shows up as an e-mail account with a long name.
    2: When adding/changing e-mail account settings in Landscape mode, you can't see the textbox while typing
    3: The phone runs SERIOUSLY HOT! It's hotter than how it gets while playing AoE for an hour.
    4: The screen randomly detects phantom touches (I can set the phone down and will see it jump back, go to the switch-apps screen, go back, all on it's own. It did NOT do this before installing, nor has it reappeared after restoring back to WP8.
    5: There's a LOT of fit and finish needed. Text overlaps on application prompts (i.e. "Can XYZ use your location" pop-ups. They look like $^*&).
    6: Randomly, apps will open then close (even after a reboot). This I suspect is a resource problem.
      I've rolled back one, and in process on the other. This being a BETA, its at your own risk. YMMV from the issues above as well.
  • 1520 - I cannot open either Here maps or the new Bing map app. Attempts to open and then shuts down.
  • any body using #win10 on L1520? hows it working ?
  • I loved Windows 8. I used all the hubs that have been destroyed. I use the keyboard and switch languages all the damn time. I do not like having to use separate apps on 8.1. I miss all the hub features and integration that made windows phone so insanely awesome. I really like my Lumia Icon. I'm very disappointed, to say the least. But Microsoft, much like Apple, can't be satisfied with the great OS they created and keeps changing everything. I was completely satisfied with Microsoft's products and thought they understood their users but they continue to frustrate me with every change they make. OneDrive is terrible, for me now as well. I could continue to complain but it's pointless. Just please stop removing USEFUL features from Windows, Microsoft. Btw, I used WMP to edit metadata that I now have to do with XP before transferring to 8.1! Lol
