Windows 10 build 15019 now rolling out to Insiders on PC with Game Mode

Microsoft is rolling out another Windows 10 Insider Preview build for PC today, following an announcement earlier this week from the Xbox team detailing new improvements for gamers with the Creators Update. Today's build is 15019 and features Game Mode, a new gaming area in Settings, and more.

Build 15019 includes some other notable changes for PC too. Here's a look at what's new:

  • Built-in Beam streaming: Beam is the easiest and quickest way to stream gameplay, and it's part of Insider Preview builds starting today for both your Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. After updating to this build, you can start Beam broadcasts by pulling up the Game bar — Windows + G.
  • New Games section in Settings: A new settings page has been added to Windows 10's Settings app specifically for gaming: Gaming. This new section will be identifiable with the Xbox logo. We're also beginning to consolidate some system and user settings for gaming in this unified location, where PC users are accustomed to accessing their settings. Starting today, you'll find settings for Game bar, GameDVR, Game Mode, and broadcasting and streaming in this new Gaming area. Not all elements of this section will be visible in today's Windows Insider build, but we'll continue to develop and deploy Gaming settings over time.
  • Game Mode: With Game Mode, it's our goal to make Windows 10 the best Windows ever for gaming. Our vision is that Game Mode optimizes your Windows 10 PC for an improvement in game performance. To enable Game Mode, go to Settings > Gaming > Game Mode toggle the feature on. Doing this will give you the ability to enable the feature for each UWP and Win32 title you play by pulling up the Game bar (Windows + G) and the clicking the Settings button. There you'll be able to opt individual games into using Game Mode. (See below for an known issue regarding Game Mode in this build.)
  • Windows Game bar improved full-screen support: We are continually adding more titles with this support. In this build, we've added support for 17 additional games in full-screen mode with Windows Game bar. As always, just hit WIN + G to invoke Game bar to capture a recording or screenshot.
    • Battlefield 3
    • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
    • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Zombies
    • FIFA 14
    • FIFA 17
    • FIFA Manager 14
    • Grim Dawn
    • Guild Wars 2
    • Left 4 Dead 2
    • MapleStory
    • Paragon
    • Payday 2
    • Rocket League
    • The Elder Scrolls Online
    • The Sims 4
    • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
    • Warface
  • Microsoft Edge can now read aloud: Last week many of you asked about this and we are proud to announce that Microsoft Edge will now read aloud* your e-books! Just press the "read aloud" button at the top-right corner after opening one of your e-books and listen to Microsoft Edge read you the book with focus on the line and the word being read along. This feature is also extended to all non-store EPUB files opened using Microsoft Edge.
  • Microsoft Edge and emoji: Microsoft Edge will now display full-color, updated emoji by default on websites that use emoji. Continuing our progress towards a more inclusive OOBE: You all gave us a TON of feedback on the new first experience over the past few weeks. The Windows Out-Of-Box-Experience (OOBE) Team offers their thanks and continues their work to reimagine how people set up their PCs for the first time. Building off what was first introduced in Build 15002, this build brings even more improvements to make setting up a PC more inclusive!
  • Privacy: The new privacy settings in the set up experience (OOBE) that Terry talked about in this blog post are now included in this build.
  • Wi-Fi Captive Portal: The Wi-Fi connectivity experience in OOBE has been updated to support "captive portal" Wi-Fi networks. When connecting to such a Wi-Fi hotspot, OOBE will navigate to a lightweight browser experience allowing you to complete the connection and reach the internet. We've also included some updates allowing you to configure some basic properties for the Wi-Fi network during OOBE.
  • MSA Sign-in/Sign-up: The Microsoft Account (MSA) Sign-in and Sign-up flows in OOBE are now updated to the new design for the Windows 10 Creators Update. Users will see that these experiences are paginated and simplified will help in reducing the overall cognitive load and in improving accessibility in the MSA sign-in/sign-up experiences.
  • Windows Hello enrollment: Users can now enroll into Windows Hello using the new design implementation for the Windows 10 Creators Update with Cortana voiceover and support for speech input.
  • Updated voice: The audio track in this build is recorded by voice actors, so it is much friendlier and the intonations are better too (compared to the synthetic voice track we had in Build 15002).
  • Subtitles: The primary purpose behind this redesign of OOBE is to be inclusive and improve accessibility. This build supports subtitles to ensure that our deaf/hard of hearing users are also included in the new Cortana voiced OOBE.
  • Bug fixes and visual polish: This build also has improvements for visual polish and a good number of bug fixes which help in overall stability.
  • Blue light is now night light: To make it more accurately reflect what the feature does, we've renamed it "night light". We made some improvements to the night light feature that lets you preview the setting before applying it.
  • We also made some improvements in the range of color temperatures in the night light feature and fixed a few issues including:
  • We fixed an issue where right-clicking the night light quick action from the Action Center and selecting Settings brought up the Settings home page and not the night light specific setting.
  • We fixed an issue where waking your device from sleep or connecting a new monitor would not have the night light setting applied correctly.
  • We fixed an issue where explorer might hang after waking a device if night light was enabled.
  • Resize your Virtual Machine Connection in Hyper-V: You can now quickly resize VMConnect by dragging the corners of the window and the guest operating system will automatically adjust to the new resolution. This requires that you are logged into the guest operating system and running in Enhanced session mode.
  • Store app and game download progress in Action Center: Building off of the work we shared with Build 15007, newly downloaded apps and games from the Store will now show download progress inside of the Action Center! Perfect for checking the status of a large game download while doing something else.
  • Improved discovery for Troubleshooters: Troubleshooters can find and fix many common problems for you. With Build 15019, we bring the latest piece of our ongoing effort to converge Control Panel into Settings and are happy to let you know that the Troubleshooters section of Control Panel has been migrated into Settings. We also flattened the hierarchy to make them easier to find, and added more solutions, too! Head to Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot to see the complete list.
  • Improved high-DPI support for ITPros: With Build 15002, we shared our new option to override a GDI-based app's high DPI scaling with our own System (Enhanced) scaling. With Build 15019, we're happy to let you know that this System (Enhanced) application compatibility setting will now also available to be enabled or disabled via the Windows ADK for IT Professionals, so you can make adjustments to a broad audience of PCs.

And here's the long list of other miscellaneous changes, improvements and fixes for PC:

  • We fixed an issue where connecting an Xbox 360 or Xbox One Controller to your PC would cause the DWM to crash, resulting in your display flickering and/or appearing blank or black.
  • We fixed an issue where with certain games if you used Alt + Tab to change focus to a different window, you could see both the newly focused window and the game flicker.
  • We fixed an issue where when using Microsoft Edge with Narrator, you might hear "no item in view" or silence while tabbing or using other navigation commands.
  • We fixed an issue where pasting on top of selected text in a Web Note would result in Microsoft Edge crashing.
  • We fixed an issue that prevented some users from viewing Twitch.tv streams in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue from recent builds where Microsoft Edge would crash when sharing a PDF.
  • We've updated the e-book viewer in Microsoft Edge so that if you've clicked on an image, you can now Ctrl + Mouse wheel to zoom.
  • We fixed an issue where typing [ into the F12 Developer Tools window wouldn't work when using the Hungarian keyboard. Custom scaling has been migrated from Control Panel to now be a subpage in Display Settings.
  • We fixed an issue where Taskbar preview icons were unexpectedly small on high-DPI devices. To help save characters when typing in fields with a character limit, we've added a new ellipsis child key for Latin-based languages (such as English, German, and French) when you press and hold the period key on the touch keyboard.
  • We fixed an issue where in certain UWP apps, tapping outside of a text box currently with focus while in tablet mode wouldn't dismiss the touch keyboard.
  • We fixed a typo in the new compatibility option to override high DPI scaling behavior for GDI-based apps.
  • We fixed an issue where newly pinned secondary tiles (for example, a pinned page from Settings) would unexpectedly appear in Start's Recently Added list.
  • We've polished the animation when moving tiles in and out of folders on Start, and fixed an issue where it wasn't possible to drag the final tile out of a folder onto the same row as the folder tile.
  • We fixed an issue from Build 15014 where using Hey Cortana might result in SpeechRuntime.exe using an unexpected amount of CPU.
  • We fixed an issue where, with a maximized Notepad window and enough text to require a scrollbar, the right-most edge of the scrollbar wouldn't do anything when dragged in an attempt to scroll.
  • We fixed an issue where, after pressing Alt to set focus to the menu bar, certain apps could become unresponsive if then pressing Ctrl or clicking inside the app's child window.
  • We fixed an issue where Cortana might crash when slowly typing out a UNC path that has already been typed out and opened through Cortana once before.
  • We fixed an issue where Default apps Settings would crash of you clicked an app under "Choose default app" and selected the option to look for an app in the Store.
  • We've updated Themes settings page to now contain a link to the Store to find more themes to download.
  • We fixed an issue where certain apps might crash after using the Open dialog to rename and open a folder.
  • We fixed an issue where Win + Shift + S wouldn't work if the mode in Snipping Tool was set to something other than Rectangle.
  • We fixed an issue where you could end up with multiple Snipping Tool processes open after using Win + Shift + S and hitting Esc to stop the snip.
  • We fixed an issue where certain file attributes, such as +s, would be lost when copying or moving a folder to a different partition.
  • We fixed an issue where using Command Prompt with certain fonts could result in conhost.exe unexpectedly using a lot of CPU.
  • We updated Dial Settings to now list customized apps alphabetically.
  • We fixed an issue with Windows Ink where undoing and redoing a point erase could result in the ink reappearing in an unexpected order.
  • We improved Screen Sketch copy reliability.
  • We fixed an issue some insiders may have experienced recently with the mouse and keyboard sometimes going unresponsive for a few seconds at a time.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain apps crashing when you switched to Tablet Mode.
  • We fixed an issue where calendar appointments marked as Tentative or Out of Office were showing up as Free in the Taskbar clock and calendar flyout.
  • We fixed an issue where, if multiple folders were selected in Background Settings under Slideshow mode, slideshow would not work.
  • We fixed an issue where you could see the page flash when navigating from and back to Themes Settings.
  • We fixed an issue where the Bluetooth & other devices Settings page unexpectedly said "Systemsettings.Viewmodel.settingentry" at the bottom.
  • We've improved Settings reliability.
  • We fixed an issue where, when using Phonetic as the sorting method with the zh-tw display language, the clock on the lock screen wouldn't appear.
  • Based on feedback, we've adjusted the look of the Virtual Touchpad to make the left/right buttons more visible.
  • We've fixed an issue that could result in the Netflix app crashing on launch. Try again and it should work. We also fixed an issue where on certain hardware types, the Netflix app would crash when starting a movie.
  • The game DOTA2 should now launch normally.

Lastly, here are the known issues you should be aware of in build 15019 for PC:

  • IMPORTANT: The download progress indicator shown when downloading this build is currently broken under Settings > Update & security > Windows Update. It may look like you're getting stuck at 0% or at other percentages. Ignore the indicator and be patient. The build should download fine and the installation should kick off. See this forum post (opens in new tab) for more details.
  • After updating to this build, nonstop exceptions in the Spectrum.exe service may occur causing PCs to lose audio, disk I/O usage to become very high, and apps like Microsoft Edge to become unresponsive when doing certain actions such as opening Settings. As a workaround to get out of this state, you can delete C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Spectrum\PersistedSpatialAnchors and reboot. For more details, see this forum post.
  • Some Windows Insiders may have had trouble connecting to certain Google sites due to an implementation of a new security model being rolled out to further enhance user security. The team is working on a resolution. In the meantime, users can access these sites from an InPrivate tab.
  • Extensions in Microsoft Edge do not work in this build. Extensions may appear to load but will not function as expected. This issue should be fixed in the next Insider release build we release. If you depend on extensions in Microsoft Edge, we recommend skipping this build. You can pause Insider Preview builds by going to Settings > Updates & security > Windows Insider Program, clicking on "Stop Insider Preview builds", and choosing "Pause updates for a bit".
  • Microsoft Edge F12 tools may intermittently crash, hang, and fail to accept inputs.
  • Microsoft Edge's "Inspect Element" and "View Source" options don't correctly launch to the DOM Explorer and Debugger, respectively.
  • Windows Insiders will unexpectedly see a "Mixed Reality" entry on the main page of Settings.
  • Some captive portal Wi-Fi networks may fail to connect during OOBE. If a captive portal network is using DNS hijacking to redirect to a secure site, the captive portal app will crash and the user cannot clear the portal. Yes/No voice commands in the Wi-Fi portion of OOBE are currently failing.
  • Quicken 2016 will fail to run with an error stating .NET 4.6.1 is not installed. For Insiders familiar with Registry Editor, there is an optional workaround. Take ownership of the following registry keys and edit the "version" value to be 4.6.XXXXX instead of 4.7.XXXXX:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full
    • Note: Please take caution when editing the registry. Changing the wrong value can have unexpected and undesirable results.
  • Dragging apps from the all apps list to pin on Start's tile grid won't work. For now, please right-click on the desired app in order to pin it.
  • Some Tencent apps and games may crash or work correctly on this build.
  • Under Settings > Update & security > Windows Update you might see the text "Some Settings are managed by your organization" even though your PC isn't being managed by an organization. This is a bug caused by an updated flight configuration setting for Insider Preview builds and does not mean your PC is being managed by anyone.
  • On some PCs, audio stops working sporadically with 'device in use' error". We are investigating. Restarting the audio service may fix things for a bit.
  • The Action Center may sometimes appear blank and transparent without color. If you encounter this, try moving the taskbar to a different location on screen.
  • Popular games such as may experience crashes or black screens when trying to load due to a platform issue.
  • When clicking on certain elements in desktop (Win32) games, the game minimizes and cannot be restored.
  • Game Mode is enabled system wide by default, however, the ON/OFF toggle in Settings will incorrectly show it as being OFF until the user manually toggles the Setting to ON which will cause it to update and accurately display the status of Game Mode system wide.
  • Broadcasting to Beam via the Game bar currently requires a number of Privacy settings to be changed. Please visit this forum post (opens in new tab).
  • Certain hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting. This does not affect the quality of your broadcast and is only visible to the Broadcaster.

  • Yay been waiting for this.. :D
  • + seems faster at least +10FPS :D
  • Tried it?? :D
  • Good bye to windows phone.
    - I was waiting for a great features like this to my fav lumia mobiles.
    - last couple of updates (especially after that creators update announcement) i did recognise that from insder bulids microsoft putting eye on only pc first.
    - i have been using only lumia mobiles since lumia 510, Really sad to take this decision to go for android or ios mobile.
    - i'm not a enterprise user, i'm a student, who needs that costly hp elite x3, look at xiaomi redmi note 4 in india. Very Cheap price high quality mobile.
    - this is a aggresive comment to microsoft ecosystem, in this whole world there are only few number of enterprise users.
    - And i'm waiting for surface like mobile devices from nearly 1 and half year, yet their is no official announcement on this device. Keep hiding that sexy till before we die.
    - i'm a windows fan because of quality nokia, and you ruined that brand microsoft.
    - i was thinking google is f****** company without supporting there apps to windows ecosystem.
    - why google need to support wm? Even when you are quit and silent about wm apps, great devices, quality features and many. Why you are not support like your android apps to our fav windows mobiles.
    - f****** feedback hub, wasted my whole time by giving feedback to improve my windows mobile experience from last 1 and half year.
    - tired of commenting this f****** experience with my fav lumia. Soon i'm going to buy android 7 mobile like galaxy s8 edge
    - now i'm quitting this f****** pc insider program. Good bye microsoft.

  • See that even windows central app also shows old uncle photo in my comment. Hahahahaha lol
    (sorry after the comment edited, it change to empty)
  • Thanks for sharing. Good luck.
  • We've got still 2 months before the final creators update kick off.. Till then they could add up some new features to W10M...
    We could start to see the changes from mid feb... Till then they are fully focused on pc and xbox.. Lets keep fingers crossed ... But its too early to say that they are not focusing on mobile...
  • Is that message for MS or WC? You can show your displeasure by sending the above to MS.
  • Downloading =D!
  • Me too..
  • Thanks
  • Splendid !!!
  • So with this do all the game bar settings move to system settings app from Xbox app?
  • It'll be accessable at both places
  • Could do with a new mobile build. Current one is poor.
  • Agreed, poor background app management and battery inconsistencies are weird things to have after so many good builds. Since the start of the 15xxx builds, I can see more noticeable lag when many apps are open and I'm typing.
  • they do change a lot of things between each production release. so performance takes a hit while developing new things.
  • Yeah, but this is by far the worst. Generally, I have found battery life to be good. This build is very bad on it though. Thankfully, I have noticed that things can be very bad, but they have a habit of pulling stuff together very well. The RS1 build had tons of issues, then at launch, boom, so many fixed.
  • Having been apart of this from the beginning I can understand that but things have been really noticeable this build, especially the lag.....guess I was spoilt by the consistently good builds previously ☺.
  • My battery used to easily last the day as I barely use the phone at work. Now I struggle to keep 50% charge.
  • Battery has been abit weird on 15012. For example, mine nose dived from 25% to 5%, then as soon as I pulled in charger it shot up to 30%. The one thing I noticed that was improved/fixed pre 15xxx builds was that the device wouldn't discharge if I was playing a game whilst charging, hoping this returns.
  • Mobile seems to have been really lagging behind this year. None of the Mobile build in the past 2+ months have had a single substantial addition. Kind of sad, especially since desktop is getting so many cool new features. Where is the blue light at >_>?
  • Patience please :P ... We will get new features but just let PC jump right now with new features...
  • Have they confirmed night light coming to mobile? It will be really useful there. I think Samsung have that feature in a few of their phones but not sure if its part of Android. Will be cool to have it in W10M, at least on Lumias that support changing colour temperature already
  • Yeah, Night Light needs to come with W10M. There is basically not much significant new things and reimplementation on W10M, instead we even loose some (RIP Apps Corner for example). W10M is on low this Creators Update. It's complete opposite of what been speculated that on RS2 getting some more attention for W10M, now the goal post moved into RS3...4.... The awaited Continuum improvements to act like a desktop seems won't come this update. Not surprising since it seems they only started to realize the shortcoming just before we start on RS2. This Continuum will take time given how much it needs to improve. What keeps me bothering with W10M is why nobody even try to fix and redesign Action Centre for landscape. It's so odd and neglected that it still on works on portrait.
  • It just annoys me how Microsoft keeps breaking the identity and guidelines that it has itself established. "Okay, every option will have an outline icon. But now, who cares, let's put a giant filled xbox logo here". But no wonder, after realizing how it will never follow a pattern nor for it's own apps.
  • I know right! Even some of their apps have this same problem, some have fully colored white icons while others are just outlines. Hope this is fixed in neon.
  • I hope, but a design language is useless when MS themselves just don't even care about design in their software (hardware is fine). It seems they just don't get it and feels like the one who executing it don't have a proper design taste and lack of attention to detail, while their designer left in the dust seeing how far their concepts to actual working code. Hopefully Neon will have a very clear and strong guidelines that MS would understand what it should be and how is it done. IMO, they have to make their talented designers to work closely with the actual development stages, so things like these will get addressed before they even released to us Insiders.
  • If we start talking about the apps inconsistencies, we'll stay here for days, haha!  I agree with aXross, What's the point of a new design language if, until now, they have always wasted it. On W8, apps were a bit more consistent, but we had a few ones that diverged on the UI. Then we transitioned to the W10 apps, where, until today, the inconsistent is present: some with hamburguer menus, some with pivots, some with options on the bottom, some with options on the top, some with option icons labeled, some just with icons, different context menus, different icon styles... I'm hoping Neon have strong guidelines, and that MS invest in encouraging them to be followed, but, for now, it's better be prepared for the worst.
  • That may be true, but it is nothing like the changes and more changes, upon changes that Google continues to introduce on Android! If they didn't have so much marketshare, their developers would be screaming! 🙂
  • Yeah, that's I'm always bothered with MS when it comes to design and aesthetic directions. They just simply "don't get it", despite having designers in the company they seem don't have control on those things. Cortana is still even on light theme even though light theme Taskbar isn't there yet. I just simply don't understand their design taste at times (or many times). In terms of hardware though, they are great which is odd of a company that have name software on it yet this area is where they have more issues with.
  • Well actually I think if icons followed the Xbox new settings icon they could look way better. Just my opinion.
  • Sounds interesting... Gonna try later on my SP4
  • Error 0x80070002 for me ☹
  • Mine's in 'initializing updates' for about 30 minutes now and is still loading...
  • Same for me on my other computer. They stated it would show 0 progress but should still be working
  • Yeah they said so.
  • Mine's now jumped into ' Preparing to install updates 100% '... Freezed on that LOL
  • Now back to 'Downloading 0%' :D
  • My 2nd computer also failed with same error
  • Still having the same issue. I am just waiting it out :). 
  • same, sitting there 'initializing updates' too...
  • Mine has been stuck for hours on that, gonna have to give up on this build unless MS release an ISO
  • Error on checking for updates here  (0x8024402f)
  • SP3 stuck on 0% downloading (I uninstalled my Bitdefender Total Internet Security 2017) but let's see if it progresses after 30mins.
  • Yeah let's see.
  • Update ... After 33mins I'm sill stuck on 0% download.
  • expected... wait it out.
  • Depends on your internet connection and their server load. But if you have a decrnt connection (10Mbit or better), then you should be at 35-50 minutes to download, but sure, that also depends on their server load, though.
  • "Some Windows Insiders may have had trouble connecting to certain Google sites due to an implementation of a new security model"  Sounds like a Feature not an Issue... /s
  • Lol being serious for a second I've noticed YouTube doesn't render correctly in Edge a lot of the time (even on Release Preview). Feels like Google are intentionally degrading the experience there almost..wouldn't have thought it was related to the edge issues mentioned above since they are completely different branches
  • Fingers cross,I font try run into blue screen issues like the previous builds
  • You mean green screen now ;)
  • Yes lol 😁 just had it now again the dreaded green screen
  • Nothing in the release notes for those of us who have been stuck on 14986 because of GSODs after updating, so I'm not optimistic. :(
  • I was hopeful. Trying now.
  • Just tried. No longer getting the GSOD, but it rolled back to 14986 near the end. Appears to be the same issue mentioned in the release notes of the previous version.
  • They've released ISOs for 15002, if you're still stuck on 14986 you'd best use those to unstuck yourself.
  • Tried that, but get the GSOD when it boots up.
  • Its exactly the same with my pc , it wont leave 14986 no matter what I do , seemed stucked even with a hard reset
  • My action center is not showing anything. Is blank and transparent that's it. Is anyone having this issue ? Build : 15014.1000
  • I am on one of my athlon desktops.
  • Almost all the time on my SP4
  • noticed that too. hoping this fixes it.
  • Update that's 15019 just installed onto the athlon mentioned above and it has fixed this issue for me.
  • This is a knwon issue, according their blog. I am not sure whether it mentioned a workaround.  
  • It was also mentioned in the blog that moving the Taskbar somehow fixes the issue. I haven't downloaded the build, maybe later at night.
  • Change the language configuration...
  • Please read the release notes.
  • No mobile build today....my 950xl really needs one.
  • Same man, same
  • Ditto.
  • Ditto! This later build for mobile is really annoying... Qi charging issue had returned. Apps are really slow to respond and lag .
    Edge is also slower and crashes multiple times a day.
    Groove crashes every time I make a 2nd change to my local collection - first chance is fine.
    Photos appear in Photos, but do not appear in Outlook Mail when I want to attach it.
    Many little things.
    I guess the more things broken means even more fixes for the next build!
  • Lol that logic in your last sentence ^_^
  • Well so we have long list of fixes to say on the changelog! That's good right?
  • I went back to preview after 15002 ruined my 950XL, it was the 1st fast build that had so much issues I had to restore...
  • Has anyone successfully installed this update? I've been at 'Initializing updates...' on my SP4 and SP3 for the past hour.
  • Try restarting the windows update service and resuming the update. This solved it for me.
  • mines not showing update running in task manager. how did you restart it ? is it hiding under another name ?
  • It was like that for 45 minutes on my SP3, but no it jumped to downloading updates. It looks promising at least?
  • mine hung for a while but taskmgr showed an 'optimizing delivery process' not doing too much in the background.. then it downloaded and installed without issue, just turned game mode on and will try it on 'For Honor' BETA software all the way.. :D
  • No mobile build this week eh? I'm planning to hard reset my phone to fix some cumulative issues over all the build updates
  • Could you guys make a video showing some benchmarks in games with game mode turned off an on?
  • +1
  • There's been some quite high profile layoffs in the last couple of days. Brian and Lauren being but 2, do U guys have any insider info? Or official comment from MSFT?
  • Lauren?
  • Stuck on initializing updates for about 45 mins
  • Try restarting the windows update service and resuming the update. This solved it for me.
  • MSFT be like 2017 will be a great year for Windows 10 Mobile
  • W10M FTW!
  • Any news on a new Mobile build? Did I miss that report? 🤔
  • They decided not to release due to a "blocker", which I take to mean a severe bug. https://twitter.com/donasarkar/status/825065215523971072

  • Why are you posting this on Windows Central? Shouldn't this be on Android Central?
  • So where are those benchmarks we're all waiting for?
  • Mine was like that it will start downloading and install.
  • Wow, 2 1/2 hours of initializing before it started to download.
  • Mine says that Windows is preparing an update but it isn't ready yet. I can retry or wait. I retry, and it says the same thing. Nothing happens. This has been going on for hours.
  • Curious if the night light feature will come to Mobile (once this or another build is released for it). Can anyone confirm?
  • Should I install it? Is it working well?
  • Still downloading... about 6+ hours now...
  • Mobile is so lagging behind. Bluelight and action center updates would be pretty cool.
