Microsoft has pushed out a new build for Windows Insiders on the fast ring. Build 18272 is available now as both an update and an ISO and brings a few tasty new treats to the table.

Acting on feedback that said the Windows Hello settings are too cluttered, the latest build brings a redesign to this area, applying each sign-in option its own list to clean up the settings. Windows Hello is an important tool and Microsoft recognises if it looks too confusing to set up, folks might just skip it entirely.

Also coming with 18272 is a further expansion of the SwiftKey AI, with the support of eight new languages. These include two new localizations of English, the U.S. Spanish, three local options of French, German for folks in Switzerland and Portuguese is added for folks in Portugal.

This doesn't just apply to the software keyboard, text suggestions for people using a hardware keyboard will also make use now of the additional languages.

There's a whole bunch more in the new build which you can find out over on the Windows Blog, not least another update to the ever-popular Sticky Notes application.
