Windows 10 Mobile preview build 14342 rolled out to Fast ring Insiders.

This is the first Insider build available for the Lumia Icon, BLU Win HD LTE 150e, and BLU Win JR 130e. Some users reported getting hung up during the install, but being patient seems to be the best remedy.

Build 14342 delivers swipe navigation for Microsoft Edge , the ability to open websites with apps, as well as the usual fixes.

Microsoft also rolled out a new Store UI for those running "Redstone" builds of Windows 10.

In other news, a video surfaced this week of a LG Nexus 5X running Windows 10 Mobile. There isn't too much to take away from the video, but it's certainly a cool novelty that took a lot of technical savvy.
