Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.107 hits public release for Lumia 950, 950 XL and 550

Update: Microsoft has provided an official announcement on its Answers forum alongside a more detailed changelog. We've updated the changelog below accordingly.

Original Story: It looks like Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.107 is now rolling out to non-Windows Insiders after about a week of testing on the Fast and Slow Insider rings.

While we haven't yet heard from Windows Insider chief Gabriel Aul on the rollout, we have received a number of tips that those not enrolled in the Insider program have begun receiving the update. Additionally, Doug Holland, a Senior Architect Evangelist for Microsoft has confirmed on Twitter that the update is indeed landing for non-Insiders.

To recap, build 10586.107 is a pretty minor cumulative update. However, it does contain the following fixes:

  • Reliability and stability improvements.
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements with car and other accessories.
  • Microsoft Edge improvements to PDF rendering and navigation.
  • Improvements for battery usage with Iris Recognition for Windows Hello.
  • Update system improvements to fix a situation where some users had phone software updates and app downloads stuck at 0% for extended time periods.
  • Change to update system to now require phone to be plugged into a charger when downloading and preparing phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem causing erroneous low storage prompts for some users when trying to download phone software updates.
  • Fix for a problem that caused erroneous prompts of Outlook account settings being out-of-date for some users, although account settings had not been changed.
  • Fix for a problem that caused some phones to get stuck on BitLocker Recovery screen after a reset.

If you're a non-Insider using a Lumia 950, 950 XL or 550, you should be able to pull the update down to your device soon. Once it's installed, let us know what you think in the comments below.

Thanks for the tips, everyone!

  • @daniel GIlbert M this is only for devices that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile as it has yet to be officially released for other devices
  • Good damn question (Answered)... And, might I add, they need it.. 107 is fine,, except the ongoing picture picker lags, force closes, inconsistency, and lack of intuitiveness.... I swear, photos has to be the absolute worst part of W10M... From loading pics to FB, to saving picks from the stupid Bing website (which is also weird for a mobile OS. Cortana never did this before), to the ugly layout of the app. Zero style.
  • 1.lack of intuitiveness
    2.Cortana is a mess ( Bing app for Android and iOS looks 1000 times better, even though it lacks cortana)
    3.Photos app is a disaster compared to WP 8
    4.FORCE CRASHES are ruining the overall impression of the OS ( even though it happens only once in a while )
    Agreed on these
  • I do admit that it's improving... Just still a few issues that you'd think would've been resolved by now... I mean, issues that we were dealing with in early preview builds. Now, that's a damn shame.
  • Few?? He has mentioned a few!
  • No. Nobody has mentioned ANYTHING!
  • Rodneyej, I'm using a 640XL that worked amazing with 8.1, with .107 while it appears better this version has impaired touch.  Where touch was working great there is a lot of lag when execiting a touch.  Also, apps are opening slower especially those on the sd card.  So they fix one thing and screw up another.  I have already moved on to the IPhone mainly due to work.  I would love to get back on the WP their own apps are better on iOS.  I'm not sure they have a core mission to get this right.  I have been also testing a OnePlus X and I have to say for a $250 proce point its an anazing phone and what they did with Andriod is beautiful.  I don't believe its lack of focus at MS but lack of direction.
  • Had 107 on my 1520 since release to the fast ring, don't have any of these issues. Super stable and everything works. I miss done it the function of 8, but stability wise it's fine and faster actually, rarely see loading...
  • I have it on my 1520 and I am more and more frustrated with the OS. It is so raw the EA is green with envy! I can only pitty the owners of 950 and 550. How disspointing is it to have a phone with beta OS, And a bad beta at that. Contstant freezes of the screen that you can only fix with locking the screen and unlocking, animation of the song title in the volume bar while anything is playing, that glitchy twichty thig, this is JUST unacceptable. The layout of many apps (like update part of the store) is horrible - incosistency in design, sowhere there are buttons, other places there is the blue text, sometime they are so close together you caneasily miss... And don't get me started on Groove, the monstrosity. OMG how bad is Groove!
  • Take it easy. I have a 950 and no freezes, no crashes. Everything is stable! My only issue is battery drain. I only get about 10hrs of moderate usage. Waiting to see if this update helps in that regard.
  • I use 950 XL and was on .107 since its release but yesterday night I got an update unable to figure out what it was as I woke and saw updates were installed and the Battery life is good average of 3-4% draining on moderate use. Left for office with 95% and after 4 hours with 15 mins of Skype Video on 3G and 3 mail accounts on Sync and 30 minutes of voice call and still remians at 83% which I think is great...
  • Me too, the problem is the battery drain, i don't know what i can do, only whatsapp in background, no facebook, manuale sincro of the e-mail and other tricks but i can't reach the end of the day without charge one more time. In aero mode the battery go down about 20% in 7 hours
  • Maybe you got a bad phone? I have a 950 and don't have any of the problems anyone has listed thus far. No freezing, no loading or resuming no issues with groove or other music players. I will admit the photos app is just all around bad and poorly designed. Overall everything is just fine. I grt vrry frustraded with the negative comments. Oh been in the insider program in the fast ring since the first week. It had come a long way. As to the intuitiveness. W10m is far more intuitive than android or iOS. Maybe if you're coming from those you may not think do because you are used to the convoluted way those system work and are comfortable having to dig and root around to do what you want, but maybe you need to quit overthinking everything and just accept the new, much better system of W10m.
  • I have a 1520. Had many issues. Then I did factory reset. Now windows 10 mobile runs great. Minimal issues.
  • Did you guys with 1520 do a restore after that factory reset it start over 100% new? Mine runs like hell but I've been doing a restore after the rest. Just curious how much difference it'll make
  • No. I quit doing that builds ago.... Like I said, we aren't complaining about the OS itself lagging, rather specific apps that have trouble. And, some are tied to the OS.
  • My friend had most of the issues you mentioned with the same phone. After seeing my 640XL running fine, she understood the problem is not the OS. All these problems went away after she did 2 things. One is to change the SD card to brand new class 10; Second is to do factory reset. I think she did reset first and used the memory card right away with the phone rather than formatting it with her computer. Try it. It might help.
  • I had slight stability issues on .63 update but a hard reset (actually rollback to 8.1 and then fresh update + hard reset) fixed all those issues. Since then .71 and .107 have been stable without any hard resets...and this is on 1520.
  • It has been an utter frustrating disaster on my 1020. It turned a reliable quick phone into a laggy inconsistent mess.
  • Groove is HORRENDOUS! Patchy art appears and don't try and launch an album from a live tile, you'll be waiting for hours! 
  • I have a 930  and i have no isses at all at this stage.  Dont get me wrong i miss gestures and cant believe microsoft have not put that in like promised in 2014 december.  Theres settings i would like and features like skype that lackes any real features, like using both my cameras.   But all my apps work and are all speedy and i have a long app list.  Actualy the ui is fast and pleasurable, the only hint of slowness is on a coulple of apps when loading but it isnt a big enough issue to worry me juat  half a second wait.  Even with the missing gestures and features in certain apps id be happy if this windos 10 on my lumia was a finished released build, its definatly good enough on my lumia 930.  I just hope it do4esnt take 2 years to get a working beta gesturs app built in, sktpe improvments especialy the very basic switch camera mode facebook has had for years.  I hope it doesnt take 2 years for microsoft to realise hamburger menu is a mistake and doesnt belong in the windows envoirnment on its own.  Maybe place it bottom right where th line of dots and settings has always been and keep pivoting at the same time.  the new people app is a great example of pivoting. Lasdtly plse take the 950 insides and stick it in the 650 body, the 650 looks premium the 950 doesnt, its that simple for me. In readign the comment above me about albums pined to start taking a long time to play i have fount theat pining a tile from groove takes about 20 sec for the tile to sow up so thats a issue, but it plays the album immidiatly so thats not a problem.
  • Not sure what you refer to. I am running Win 10 on 950 xl. It's stable sleek and troubleless.
    Have you noticed the big step forward between 8 and 10. 10 is a full-blown desktop system running on your cell phone. It has huge potential.
  • YeahRrright... you are absolutely correct. And then they wonder why market share is dropping. MS has no idea what to do with the platform... its been 2 months since .29 was released on my phone and now just got this update. Two crashes since last night and no its NOT the hardware....
  • It's not the stability of the OS itself, rather specific apps, like Cortana, that need polish.
  • As they have broken out each app from being integrated,I think the OS is each app. And it's like they are designed by completely different teams.
  • Photos app in Win 10 is so much better than 8. 8 is just lame all around.
  • thers alot of new features in windows 10 i love but theres alot of old features still misisng from windows 8.1.  I use windows 10 as my daily driver because of these new features but still miss and want the old like gestures  but untill they get rid of the hamburger menu, windows 10 to me is far behind windows 8.1 denium just because 8.1 worked so flawlessly, 10 isnt flawless cause of missing features and ui changes but its still better than any icon only based phone.     Gestures and skype improvments, pivoting back throughout the phone are things id like, gestures being the main one but after all the talk about missing features wheres out apple pay alternative, without it windows mobile is gona struggle to become a choice fro alot of people includeing its current usser base.  Personally im waiting 1 more year then if i dont get gestures back, which made it have a unique feature none of my iphones had and if they dont have a up and runing wireless payment system in place ill have no choice but to abandon what i consider the best smartphone platform available, and that will be a sad day for me but hears hoping. I just feear they wont and that will just make more windows phone users leave and abandon not just mobile but move their lives over to mac, after all macs already have apple pay, they can make proper phone calles from their laptops or desktops to other peoples phones and well their app store is superior to all other os out there, time is truley against microsoft at this time.
  • I got this update on the fast ring and it has broken my quiet hours. I have to activate it or change the time in quiet hours settings. It switches itself off at the correct time however but the following evening I have to manually switch it on again
  • Like everyone has said for months... With these updates it's two steps forward, and one step back....
    But, at least it's steadily (albeit slowly) moving forward. It's gotten better with each update.
  • It's got better with each update.. Just that there is still room for improvements.. They have to concentrate on small things which effects the overall usability, like the "Now playing" pop up controls that shows up when pressing the volume rocker is flickering several times before going to the next song...
    Like I said.. It won't bite my hand and hurt me.. It won't stop me from using the phone.. But it's something that as a smartphone user I don't like to see on the screen I'm looking at..
  • "Overall impression"*
  • It's sad because MS used to have the best behaving OS, and now it's probably the worst.. Super embarrassing.. Lol.
  • yep..the hard truth.
  • Will never be the worst, android is simply unreachable
  • Yeah, that's what we've been saying for years... You sure about that?
  • I take it youve never owned a flagship android phone then?
  • You contradicted you self. Two step forward and onestep back means it's not improving at all,
  • Technically, if u physically do two steps forward and or step back, you've still moved forward one step :p so they haven't contradicted themselves, as they said "at least it's steadily (albeit slowly) moving forward"
  • Right
  • wow, math isn't for you huh?
  • No, it's moving forward... Lol. By that rate at least one step.
  • No. Two step forward and one step back means its improving. 2-1 = 1. So one step forward. Lol. Learn math.
  • actually 2 steps foward and 1 back = 1 step forward so technically its a 1 step forward improvement.  I think the last 3 builds all showed progression on my lumia 930 but before that every build broke my phone to the extent id have to restore from a fresh 8.1 and even then stuff would break lol.  Its all good now defo 930 prime time ready, yeh thers some small bugs that need ironing out but then again iphones i had over 6 years all had bugs they needed ironing out.
  • lol I thought the correct moto was "one step forward and two steps back"
  • The only problem i have is battery and that's the only one you seem to let out...
  • Right. And battery life... But, I don't complain about that too much just yet because the update has not officially been released to the 1520 specifically as a consumer product... And, I don't yet know what their plans for that include.
  • Yes battery on my 1520 has taken a big crap but lately I've also noticed charging issues as well. I lost my fast charge. It takes a full night to get it back to a 100% from 50%.
    I got a pop up asking how I liked this build....i wasn't nice.
  • You (specifically) might want to try taking a can of compressed air, and blowing out your charging port... Be careful, and keep the can upright, as to not blow any moisture up in there.. Sounds like your port is dirty. That will ALWAYS cause it to charge super slow.. Doesn't always happen gradually, either. Sometimes a little energized piece of lint from your pocket will get up in there... Try that, and see if it works.
  • Thank bud....thats a good thought. Gonna give it a try
  • My 950XL been of the charger for 8 hours now, over 5 of those 8 hours I have been online sending messages on Line and WhatsApp while sitting next to my son in hospital. In the same time I have watched a few 5 min clips on Mytube and spent the rest on here or redit. Phone still showing 28% battery. Don't se a need to complain about that personally.
  • do not have those issues on my att 950
  • Me neither.  I think many posting are not Windows users at all.  Two family members with 640's no issues there either.
  • I don't known whether anybody is experiencing these issues after the .107 update but I still cant connect my 950 XL to the Bluetooth in my 2016 Honda Accord and Windows Hello which had about 95% success rate is now worse than anyone can imagine. I have tried several ways to improve its recognition but with no avail.
  • This update doesnt fix BT or 4k video. And yes i still get garbled auto and skipping during BT.
  • So I'm not alone with my BT complaints
  • Riddle me this.. Can an iPhone 6s+ connect to your 2016 Honda Accord❓❓❓❓
  • It works fine with my 640XL with 8.1 and it pairs easily with a friend's Galaxy S6 edge+ but I have not tried any of the fruitys on it.
  • yes
  • Can any Windows Phone connect to any new car? NO! All new models come with Car Play and Andoid Auto. Bluetooth only...
  • Wrong.  Our Windows phones connect wth our 2015 Chevy Traverse.  I also put a new head set in my 2008 Maibu, and our windows phones wok great with it too.
  • It isn't like Car Play or Android Auto. It is just Bluetooth like he said. Completely different connection. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Just rescan your eyes. About bluetooth, i don't know..
  • Get a new car... Works fine in mine.
  • This is just an ignorant response. You should either actually try to be helpful or STFU.
  • You must be popular ^
  • It was more helpful than yours.
  • Actually, I'd imagine they were about the same. Scroll down a little further to MorganRW's reply to learn that actual meaning of the word helpful. Maybe you'll be less of a troll with some education.
  • Agreed
  • I thought it was funny.
  • If he did the dash in the new car would probably have more apps than his phone..
  • Not feasible haha
  • Delete the profile of your phone in your car and the profile of the car in the phone. Pair it again and I am guessing you will be back in business.
  • "Windows Hello which had about 95% success rate is now worse than anyone can imagine​". ​I can imagine quite a bit, like trying to use Hello and all of a sudden a black hole opens and sucks you into it. Or trying to use Hello and Ultron appears behind you and squishes you with Thor's hammer.  Probably a better way to describe it is, you are having some issues that you didn't experience before... Since the .107 build I reset Hello, made sure I was in good lighting and retrained Hello and looked at the camera, not at the IR scanner (and of course if you wear glasses, take them off for training purposes). Then retrain a few times. ​In regard to your BT connection, have you tried to do what @MorganRW suggests above... that'll work I'm sure. I found Hello is quite good compared to earlier builds - even in low light and with my glasses on. It is definitely getting better, but still Hello is still in beta build.   
  • Lol.. You guys are Cray cray cray cray cray cray.
  • you might be alone with these issues, do not have none of these with att 950
  • My 950 XL works abolutely fine with my 2014 Honda Civic and my 2012 Mercedes, has done since I got it with .29 build. What issues are you having?
  • Erm. The title was different before, hence the comment I made.
  • Back kinda late, are we?
  • is this version can i get from windows care centre?
  • When will they fix one-hand mode? -.-
  • What's wrong with it?
  • It does not scroll to the end of the screen. It's useless. device reset does not fixit on my 735
  • It's like this on purpose... I mean , you can reach the bottom of your screen without one-hand mode
  • What're you talking about... The one-handed mode is only to reach stuff at the top half of the screen, you should be able to reach stuff at the bottom of the screen without using the feature.
  • If I must use the phone with only one hand, it's because my other hand is occupy, not because I want to touch only the things thety are on the top on the screen. OK, so it's crap design again.
  • You're a crap design.
  • He's right, even tough is less used, the scroll should be complete;). And also one handed should not brake edge, but it does and that is why after using one handed, the browser is totally unstable.
  • 12 years old getting the lead
  • Lol?
  • on apps you can reach the botton lol did you even try? only on start screen you cant scroll to the bottom because its the bottom xD. on edge and facebook i could reach the bottom so i dont see your problem being a valid one!  why got to one hand mode to touch an app at the bottom of your screen? just touch it and then got one hand mode jesus :3
  • Panos it is a badly designed app! If you are one handed, you still need to have the transition between full screen and half screen predicted by the app. I mean, that, if you scroll to the bottom of the screen the app should either goto full screen and then back to one handed mode if you scroll up. Until you select to go full screen  Give that app to Apple just to see how they would have designed it. With Microsoft, we are treated like being dumped in the trashcan!
  • Haha, that hilarious, since it doesn't work the way I want it to work, this it's a crap design.  Wow, have we all become this entitled.  I don't understand why some of the these people that hate this OS so much won't just switch phones, move on and relax so that they don't have a frickin The whining have reached EPIC proportions. :)
  • Have you ever used One Handed Mode on a device with onscreen buttons and pulled down the Action Center and witness what happens next? Hint: Since One-Handed mode does not scroll the "Viewing Area" down, it just slides the screen down, you cannot scroll to the bottom of the "Viewing Area" as the screen is technically, at the bottom when you scroll the tiles, except you cannot see the bottom as it is not in the "Viewing Area" As a result of this design, you cannot scroll the Action Center, close the Action Center and on some devices with onscreen buttons, pulling down the Action center ALSO hides your onscreen navigation buttons giving no way to exit the navigation center without tapping in the black area above the tiles as there isn't a Windows Start/Home Button anymore to hold. Making matters worse for some users, that handy text that tells a user how to exit One Handed mode is not on every device/build. My Lumia 950Xl doesn't have any text in the black area and some of my other devices don't either while some do. This leaves the user clueless on how to "escape" One Handed mode, that factually does not scroll to the bottom tiles in the "Viewing Area", leaving what appears to be a poorly designed implementation. Sure, One Handed mode was designed so you can reach UI elements at the top of the screen but with a little foresight, the designers could have considered making the entire UI scrollable in the "Viewing Area". If I resize my web browser window on my computer, shrinking the "Viewing Area", I don't get a hard stop to where I cannot scroll to the bottom of the page as the browser knows that I should be able to see the full page content in the resized "Viewing Area". Some people may attack the person who posted the original comment but there are merits to what he said and there has been feedback posted about it as well, from various people, wondering why we cannot scroll the Start Screen to the bottom but we can scroll the Apps List to the bottom as that creates a jarring experience. Other improvements to One Handed mode are needed as well. Edge website suggestions disappear in One Handed mode so users cannot click web suggestions that have been placed at the top of the screen. Take away from all of this? Well, we all use software differently and have different expectations. I expected to have full access to my Start Screen in One Handed mode as my expectation was that One Handed mode would allow me to use my device more easily with one hand and not to "just reach the top of the screen" and finding out that the current One Handed mode expereience cripples/reduces my ability to use the device with one hand, was suprising and I submitted the same feedback as others, and as this poster wrote. As of now, One Handed mode simply slides the screen down and it doesn't actually resize the Viewing Area like one would resize a desktop program in Windowed Mode and still get access to everything. Sliding the screen down slides other UI elements "off the phone", unabled to be accessed unless One Handed mode is exited...thus forcing the user to use 2 hands again or balance act of toggling modes to do something as simple as click on a Tile that is at the bottom of the screen. Users then have to switch back to One Handed mode and click and exit again. Some of us do have high expectations of what we think software should do and that is fine, just as some of us have low expectations and usage scenarios and that is fine too.
  • The screen is hitting the Start Screen "ceiling" so there is nowhere for them to go. The text is helpful, and I requested they put it in there again(it seems to be there the first time you use it then goes away?). It isn't poor design of you think about how it is actually working. You're asking them to move the ceiling back up to the top when scrolling to the bottom... Why not just do so yourself by exiting one handed mode? To actually be more intuitive , what would work best is if you attempted to scroll to the bottom of the Start Screen by swiping up, the one handed mode would hit the "ceiling" which would trigger an exit of one handed mode.
  • Also, try scrolling to the bottom of your app list in one handed mode again... Mine stops short of the bottom just like the Start screen does. But again if you need to see what's at the bottom half of the screen...EXIT ONE HANDED MODE.
  • I fully understand what you are saying ans mentioned that users have to exit One Handed mode. What I and others are talking about is the expectation of not having this ceiling that you are talking about. It is possible to not have a ceiling as described in the example of the viewing area or windowed mode. It comes down to design. There are different expectations and ways to look at it and it is sad to see commenters attack someone that had different expectations or usage needs. Thank you for your replies.
  • This times about a billion. If the WC app had upvoting for comments Deaconclgi would be getting a hearty pat on the back for their contribution.
  • I'm not meaning to attack, I'm just saying that what you are asking for is what is already there.To illustrate, imagine if you were able to scroll all the way down while in one-handed mode. The Action Center or app list or whatever would be displayed in the exact area it would have been if you were not in one handed mode.
    The one-handed mode is meant only for reaching the top half of the screen. Anything below that is already at the bottom half. So if you were to take a sheet of black paper and cover the top half of your screen, enter one-handed mode and scroll all the way to the bottom like you are proposing, your screen would look exactly the same in and out of one handed mode and due to the top half being covered you wouldn't be able to tell which mode is which unless you attempted to scroll the top half of the screen to the bottom which is how one-handed mode is intended to be used.
    I hope this makes sense and really didn't mean for my prior comments to be taken as an attack. I get what you are wanting, it sounds good in theory, but when actually using it, the point becomes moot. I really think they just need an automatic exit once the bottom half of the screen is coming into focus and it would be seamless. I personally don't like having to toggle between the two.
  • I've read your earlier post again and it makes more sense to me now. What you're suggesting would be a nice alternative. I personally like it how it is but I definitely see what it is you guys are looking for.
  • Slide up from bottom. Buttons will pop up even if hidden.
  • Not in One Handed mode, with the Action Center slid down. This causes the slide up action that unhides the buttons to be off the scree as well, at least on my 950XL.
  • I agree with some of your points. But man, seriously, you should write blogs. Or do you already?
  • Thank you. I am one of the original authors from MyNokiaBlog and GeekOnGadgets. I used the write often during the glory days of Nokia but lately I haven't had the time to dedicate to my passion for writing quality articles for our readers.
  • So I guessed it right. In life we have to keep changing priorities. I'll check out your contributions on mynokiablog.
  • on my lumia 930 i am able to use the action centre easyly with one hand in the one handed mode, id rather have the androdi method for 1 handed mode thut this iphone method works fine for me, i just dont use it much due to none familiarity.
  • No, that's legit whining, being a fanboy, on the other side...
  • Seriously, what?
  • i love windows 8.1 and i really lick windows 10 mobile but your right hamburger menu and it being on top and the lack of pivoting is a crap design choice for a windows phone.  Shame cause this year would have seen 8.1 app gap lower, more sales on their handsets and new features with none of the old ones missing, but a reboot it is and a 1-2 years back for windows phone it is too.
  • I just scrolled through these comments in one-handed mode.
  • Lol!! We're all arguing about an OS nobody cares about..
  • Lmao!
  • You are wrong! because i care!! and i think the OS is the future. as it is define as the Addon of a PC on the low end devices, and a Real PC with continuum. with time i bet it will be fine, and as i know, no OS is perfect.
  • i agree its the future and in time itll get there but first the competition might beat microsoft to the punch by copying them and second microsoft only have so much time before poeple have had enough time waiting and thats not that far away to day.  No os is pertfect your right but its took them too long for what ever reason to get where it is now, that speed issue is whats been the problem since windows mobile days, windows 7 windows 8 should both have had all the features windows 8.1 with denium had on their realease 2-3 years earlyer but they didnt.    As long as androd dont make a operating system for laptops and pcs and unify their apps and devices, as long as apple dont do the same then yes microsoft can do it but soz both those companies google and apple are making alot more on their more polished os i dont think itll be long till they all follow microsofts stratagy on universal apps, then microsoft will be in real trouble.  They need to hurry it up now.  Lets face it desktops and laptops with windows 10 working with 10 mobile will be great if we can do all the things macs can do like phone on any device to aNY DEVICE EVEN NON WINDOWS DEVICES AND MAKING THOSE KIND OF PROCESSES SIMPLE AND EASY COULD SAVE WINDOWS OS AND MOBILE BECAUSE BELEAVE ME ANDROID AND IPHONE COULD CRUSH WINDOWS IF THEY DID BRING OUT A OS UNIFIED BEFORE WINDOWS HAD 1-2 YEARS OF THEIRS FINISHED TO CATCH UP.
  • Android for laptops is going to be shown in May. They are merging Chrome and Android. They are already so far ahead, it will be interesting them start to erode Microsoft's laptop market. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Because you can reach the bottom of the screen with one hand?
  • if you can reach the end (down side) the screen without "one hand use" mode, why it should scroll until end the sreen
  • What needs fixing? Just wondering..
  • Turn on one-handed mode, slide down the action centre, try to exit one-handed mode for one...
  • Exit one handed mode by tapping on the blank space above - works for me anyway.
  • If course that works, but you can't press the "home" button as it's not there and there's no way to display it on screen. A workaround that involves you pressing the part of the screen which is the sole reason you're using one-handed mode on the first place isn't really a solution. And sure, it doesn't really matter to me, I've got big hands so never use this mode, but for others...
  • .107 is not bad for official version. Only need double tap on 950xl
  • "Not bad" doesn't necessarily mean "ready for prime time" ... W10M still needs polish.. Some animations are still not snappy.. Start screen is freezing once in a day.. Photos app crashes few times a day... Camera image processing is slow compared to WP8.1 ... And the list goes on... .107 build is OKAY , But not good enough.. MS can still do better and I hope they will.. I don't want them to release the OS in a hurry.. Let them take their time and make it snappy..
  • Dude, it must be a hardware issue for you as my Lumia 1520 is not having any issues at all running .107.
  • Agreed my 640 XL, 1520, and 950 XL are all working great on .107
  • It's funny, my 640 actually seems to run W10M better than my 1520 or 950, with fewer crashes, less lag, etc.  I know it doesn't make sense, but that's just how it feels.  Maybe W10M doesn't like driving the 1080p and 1440p screens versus the 720p screen or something?  I dunno.  Oh, and it runs like absolutely garbage on my 520, but that's no big deal.
  • Hello, WM10 on my Lumia 520 runs pretty well! Except the common issues that all are facing, nothing much in .107 . Even battery (1450 though) works really on par with 8.1 ! Mane your 520 is not , But i am enjoying WM10 on my 520 !!!
  • Mine was set on automatic so just got a prompt to restart and here it is
  • no my friend...640xl works ALMOST needs a bit more push...especially in camera!!!
  • Does double tap to wake work?
    Only works occasionally on my 930 running .107.
  • Agreed 930 and running wm10 since December 5 and I had only 2 bugs: Changing quick actions in notification center in settings (already fixed) and an issue that the transparent backround sometimes disappears in the apps list (still not fixed)
  • Does double tap to wake work on your 930?
  • How many L1520s are there?.. And how many low end Lumias are out there?.. W10M should work properly on devices like 535,540,630,625,730,735,550, and even 650 ... At least for now, WP market share is hanging on low end phones.. So MS needs a decent OS on those devices..
    I agree that the issues I'm facing may get vanished with a hard reset.. But I have tried it on my other device and few bugs are still here and there... It will get better in coming weeks.. But not YET..
  • Same, works great, 930. And the battery life is awesome.
  • agreed my 930 is prety slick now, pining stuff from groove does take a littel too long but its a small thing and apps loading take about 1/2 a sec longer than 8.1 but again prety smooth on my 930.  Cant complain really.  Defo resady for official release.
  • No problem here. Oh and I noticed the superslow post processing of magic wamd photos is pretty fast now, like 2 - 3 secs
  • That's my only problem tho, rich pictures are disastrously slow.
  • rly? on my 535 i never get freeze. all animations are perfect no lag. no problems with Photos app it never crashes and pefromres great! O.o
  • This. It should be released when it's at least as fast/smooth as 8.0
  • 2019 will be too late for a release for W10M
  • It will never be as fast as 8.0
  • What phone are you using?
  • what phone are you using my att 950 do not have those issues
  • I had non of the issues on 10586.29 but the battery drain. My non-insider 920 got an update (??!!) today and I have to see how it has improved. Or worsened.
  • If you disable rich capture, processing is just as good, if not, even better.
  • Give them some time... its been only 4 months since Windows 10 mobile has been released... only 4 months... and before that they only had been working on it for a year... 
  • I don't have any of these problems you are describing either on my HTC One M8.
  • Log into Windows feedback app and you will see I'm not alone
  • what phone are you using?
  • Just went from.29 to .107
  • Bought a 950xl thinking my 1020 was going to tank. Have.107 on both. Just as fast. No cashing, both phones work great. Using 1020 on insider build
  • Seriously you dont have double tab to wake?  Thats a terrible oversight by microsoft.
  • The edge search result bug is still here
  • Yup..still there
  • Yeah, its still there. Maybe they should start using Edge and see the issues with it. Not to mention other issues like it always refresh page even you've just opened it recently. Other is when you open pinned web page, it reloads first the last opened webpage before the what page supposed to open.
  • But it's okay.. Even Safari and Chrome sucks... So I'm okay with UC web... Still MS have to work on Edge, at least for the sake of Edge browser syncing in every W10 devices
  • Chrome sucks on RAM but other than that, its perfectly usable web browser that works very well, especially for web standards and got essential features working, even back+forward button can be middle-click! I know that people here hates Chrome with passion but seriously, its not that all too bad. Safari, well its not even available on Windows nowadays. On OS X with my limited use of it, that was a fine web browser and very efficient and minimalist, yet despite the simplicity it's got essential web browser features present. It's faster and more efficient than Chrome. I'm still not so sure about Safari though. Edge still have a long way, that even IE actually can be comparably better in other aspects. It's even works reliably than Edge too. Syncing seems the only reason why I would still have to use Edge sometimes just for the sake for my W10M devices. Even that, it doesn't even excel very well (example there is no tab and session syncing).
  • Eh, I prefer Edge. But Firefox isn't too bad when you disable all the things. You can strip it down to the address bar and settings button, which is nice.
  • Firefox is simply flexible enough web browser. You can do alot of things with it, so its not that bad, its just Google Chrome suddenly became so popular that people just want to install it regardless of need. I also use firefox and change the addressbar to be Omnibar to combine Search box.
  • It may work, but I'm not willing to grant it 90% of my ram, nor give it my personal data
  • Bing search result are terrible compared google... Unfortunately
  • so switch default search to google?!
  • asking for cortana and when next show is on at the cinema brings up a google now looking white plate with that movie and times all presentled neatly  like gogole now, the iphone 6s plus failed to show anyhting.  Asking cortana to do anything usually results in some prety amasing google now info which has all been a welcome recent change, and on alot of things apple iphone 6s plus failed.  Bing is not bad at all its decent once you aclimatise to the changes in the look and presentation.  But i use you tube alot and that means on desktop i have google as my main page and only cause i have a fast linke to you tube.
  • Edge bug is still there and lock screen sometimes doesnt wake up after first attempt
  • What is this Edge bug? I haven't noticed it yet
  • When you type on Edge navigation bar ,it shows search results/text prediction... It should vanish once we select one of the shown link.. But even after the web page is loaded, text prediction stays over the page and we have to wait a while for them to vanish.. If we press back button to get rid of this, the web page gets closed or goes backward.. It's an annoying bug and a famous one in Windows feedback app...
  • try rotating the screen. that works for me :)
  • Auto Rotate ALWAYS locked (~.^)
  • Edit : "Auto Rotate ALWAYS locked" is not a bug I mentioned.. ..
    I was telling him that I never allows auto rotation on my phone, so the work over he advised won't solve the issue at least for me..
  • That still not going to fix the issue permanently. That's basically a temporary way of "fixing" it. Workaround shouldn't be an excuse for not fixing the actual issue.
  • Nope not happening on my 930.
  • Happens on my 830.  Still.
  • Here is a workaround until it is fixed. When it happens again, tap on the address bar and keyboard will open again, now press the back button which will remove the buggy predictions and the keyboard keeping the webpage as is.
  • Try opening another tab and working off the 2nd tab at all times; basically the first tab doesn't respond all the time for me but the second one always works...
  • Or use UC web until it gets fixed ;)
  • @YashHarf, yup it's a nuisance. I just sent a massive essay on the photo app in the feedback app. So the person or people who have to read it will either fall over laughing or have a rather depressing day at the office lol.
  • i do not have that one, on the att 950, I try to duplicate what you said, could it be hardware issue
  • Ran the manual update check and it is now downloading. 950XL. To be honest, I have been avoiding the phone. Hoping the updates smooth out my experience before I start to need it more. Spring is coming, back outside for work soon.
  • I feel you.. If they fix the text messaging delays I can live with the other problems like edge bugs and such.
  • Any word on a meaningful update coming anytime soon? The last two updates weren't update worthy. And Microsoft seems to have dropped the ball yet again on "more frequent" updates as they discussed back in November/December. Maybe by more frequent they meant every few months.
  • how are fixes not update worthy? considering an update is needed to push fixes, that means they are update worthy.
  • It's not frequent enough for you?
  • My Moly X1 just alerted me to the .107 update...installing now.
  • That's great! How do you like phone? Looks awesome as Xperia. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It updated in less than 10 minutes from .29. I have been really impressed with how well the phone runs on .29 as my 928 did not run well on it at all. My only complaint is the power button is easy to push. You may wonder why that is a complaint. Well, because that is where my thumb goes when I talk on the phone...I've turned it off twice but believe I have now adjusted as I have not turned it off in a week or so. I posted some pics and a review on the Moly X1 forum. I've been pleasently surprised by the phone. I recommend it.
  • Great! That extra GB of RAM sure does hope. I hope it servers you well. Cheers!
  • how is that phone? Thinking about picking one up as a side arm until surface phone drops!
  • Surface phone won't save W10M , 3rd party OEMs will.. So let's set our mind away from MS... ;)
  • He never said that the Surface Phone would save WM.
  • How does SD410 run?  Pretty reasonable specs for the price.
  • It should run better than L650.. ;)
  • Electronic engineer?
  • Lucky. Not seeing anything here on my Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL.
  • That's a device I'm looking forward to.. Enjoying it?
  • Yes. Just getting used to size. Wireless Display is great. Battery life is great. Just wish it had more processing power for games. It struggles with games like Spartan Strike and Minecraft at high settings.
  • Seems fastee
  • Official changelog:  Reliability and stability improvements. Bluetooth connectivity improvements with car and other accessories. Microsoft Edge improvements to PDF rendering and navigation. Improvements for battery usage with Iris Recognition for Windows Hello. Update system improvements to fix a situation where some users had phone software updates and app downloads stuck at 0% for extended time periods. Change to update system to now require phone to be plugged into a charger when downloading and preparing phone software updates. Fix for a problem causing erroneous low storage prompts for some users when trying to download phone software updates. Fix for a problem that caused erroneous prompts of Outlook account settings being out-of-date for some users, although account settings had not been changed. Fix for a problem that caused some phones to get stuck on BitLocker Recovery screen after a reset.
  • Hoping my 2013 Buick Enclave can properly handle incoming calls now and doens't get stuck ringing forever (until I shut down the car, pull the key and open the door for a minute) when I try to pick it up with the car!
  • Plenty of bugs are still present, and we're still missing much of the day-to-day functionality of 8.x, like the ability to control music playback with speech which is essential for safe driving.
  • my steering wheel controls control the music fine, which means it's not "essential" for safe driving for everyone.
  • It is for millions of people like me who can't afford a new car just to get safety that was present in ******* Windows Phone 7.0. Judging by your ignorance/apathy regarding the valid concerns of others, I'd guess you're commenting from the good ol' US of A.
  • You tell em.
  • **** off im from the US and I feel the same way you do about the lack of functionality.
  • Well, obviously, since you're not spouting unhelpful nonsense like "works fine for me so it's not actually a problem", my comment wasn't directed at you.
  • It is when you generalize an entire group of people like you did.  
  • I've seen a lot in these comments over the last 6 years, on the news, and in my own personal experience to know that, while these attitudes aren't universal among my neighbors to the south, they are much more prevalent than in, say, Europe or India, where the other large groups of WP users reside. I've seen comments like that from American members in the tens of thousands over the years. Anybody who's been here as long as I have can tell you the same, including the Editors and the forum moderators. Don't take my word for it; ask them yourself.
    That being said, you're right; I stepped over the line. I apologize for the last sentence of the comment in question. The rest, however... No apologies whatsoever.
  • my car is 10 years old, so FAR from new, and I have used it from Windows Mobile 5.5 and up.... so, yes, not everyone can afford to get a car with it, but some research CAN lead to adding controls if you need it and your stereo HAS a remote input option (looks like a headphone port)    
  • And I'm sure it'll be helpful to those who can afford to mood their cars to suit their mobile loyalty. Most will probably just switch to something that already works, which is the whole problem for MS in the mobile space in the first place. Especially when there are decent android flagships on YOUR carrier, ATT, going for $0 on a two year contract.
  • ignorance.apathy? not the case.... what you describe as essential doesn't mean it's something everyone needs, I have NEVER used voice to skip music. Even in cars that didn't have steering controls. not everyone streams music from their phone to the car. somecar head units, available worldwide, and some not in the US, have internal storage for music. some that do need voice controls to skip, others don't. Some just want to be able to hold a phone call via bluetooth. heck, 15 minutes after my 1st post, I added another with an amazon link to aftermarket steering wheel controls. So I did mention that not everyone needs it, so it's not essential, and I posted a link showing where to buy steering controls if you need it. not sure how that shows "ignorance" but your comment/attempted insult wasn't needed.
  • The word "essential" doesn't mean everybody needs it, it means the people that need it *actually* need it. You don't need HIV meds if you don't have the virus, but if you have AIDS they are essential to your survival. Pull your head out of your ass and get your ******* brain involved in the conversation.
  • Tale your L like a man Ashram. Go play with your steering wheel controls.
    I hate this habit of disregarding and downplaying peoples concerns/complaints with the OS. Y'all need to pull that M$ D out of your mouths. Damn fanbois.
  • Ummmm. His username is "ashram"..... US of A❓
  • Scroll down a little further in the comments, fellow seasoned veteran of this community... Ashram is complaining about no ATT firmware. I overstepped with the generalization, but I wasn't wrong about where they're from.
  • Or just take public transit. Much safer. Cheaper. And usually faster. Source: USA
  • And non-existent when your commute takes you over 20 miles out of the nearest city.
    Source: Every rural community on the planet, including the USA. Not everybody has the same options, and defending those who downplay others' legitimate concerns because they don't share them doesn't do anybody any favors.
  • *shrugs* I live in a small city/good sized town. Everything is far away. I manage with my car, though in-town transit is an option. Even before I had a newer car, my 2000 Subaru legacy worked just fine, even without steering wheel controls. Aftermarket Bluetooth components are inexpensive too. Though for me, it's easier on the long rural stretches where there are no cars to just quickly switch the song on my phone for 2 seconds. Just leave Groove open and make a car playlist. Use Cortana and name a new playlist, and she'll play it. It's not that hard, even with private transport. :P
  • Talking on the phone with a bluetooth headset or hands free system is just as dangerous as holding the phone with one hand. Stop the bullshit please.
  • Glad someone finally said this.
  • i disagree, i find it safer to drive with both hands on the stearing wheel while everything is done wirelessly.
  • Nothing yet.
  • Still waiting on the 7.8 update for your Samsung Focus❓
  • As a matter of fact I was left high and dry by good ole AT&T on this and watched them drag their feet on almost everything to do with windows phones while being hailed the premier supporter for windows phone in USA ( you know as an example how they neutered the phone that could have other wise made a huge difference in US the beautiful Lumia 1520 in Hulk green ! )
  • Wow I was just about to install the insider app and switch to w10m on my 640xl. WC saved me. Edit : Reading @ 5am, no sleep damn !! That title !!!! Edit 2 .. Goes to sleep :(
  • Found the release notes in the forums
  • I'm still on .29
  • Do the hard reset if you don't get update Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Yeah do hard-reset or try switching insider Rings. If not, then worst is to use Recovery Tool.
  • I don't have the insider app. I thought this was for the general public. I'm on AT&T also. I thought the updates were to get around the carrier. Just checked again. Still no update.
  • Yes this is a public build
  • Apparently it hasn't rolled out to AT&T yet. According to the announcement from MS, it will take about a week to hit all devices.
  • Still with wifi issues on 550 and 950 #screwyounadella
  • You mean when the router restarts n the wifi doesnt auto connect well?
  • Random disconnections, wifi ssids not appearing etc
  • Well no problem on my lumia 950 ds since i brought it...was on 586.0 Posted via the Windows Central App on Limited edition Lumia 950 or Lg g4
    Surface pro 4 lumia 1020, 535 moto e
  • How ks that helpful? Like really, how is it helpful to tell him/her that your phone is fine? Will it help solve the wifi issues? If not then why post? Goddamn fanbois are the cancer in this place.
  • Can we stop with the profanity. Please? It doesn't further your claim towards intelligence
  • Neither does assuming that profanity indicates lower intelligence. They are powerful words. Very effective for emphasis. I know plenty of people with IQs 140 and over who swear more than anybody in this comment section.
  • mine is fine too att 950, and us telling him that should tell him maybe its a hardware issue and he should return the phone
  • There are still issues with this build -- it is not perfect.
  • Agreed..It is not perfect..the same applies to all the other OSes ... ;)
    .107 is usable for fans like me.. But not good enough for official release
  • I am noticing occasional issues with the cellular antenna that I did not see in .29, which I would consider more on the serious side
  • perfect for me on att 950 no more issues
  • Why would you expect perfection? No OS update is perfect
  • Nothing in the real world is
  • ^like this
  • got the prompt like 10mins before this article was posted and immediately came here to see what was new in it
  • SIM Free/Unlocked UK Lumia 950 XL, nothing as yet.
  • Try again... mine's started
  • Thank you, yes is now downloading...
  • Did it also fix Hello glitch of it not working randomly until 950 is turned off and on?
    Happens on 10586.29
  • never had that glitch on att 950, you sure not a hardware issue?
  • .71 build to .107 is a big step with many in between builds. 107 works fine on my 930 - no issues. Bring on Redstone!!!!
  • For a moment, I thought it rolled out for all wp 8.1 devices. 
  • Will they ever fix the lockscreen to actually slide up like in Windows Phone and not just the clock! I hate it this way....
  • But most of us like it this way.. I respect your opinion though.. :)
  • "Most of us" says one person. There are millions of Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile users on the planet. Exactly how many of them have you personally polled about the new unlock animation? At least 4 or 5 million, in order for your claim to be accurate...
  • Or you can be little smarter and spend a second or two in Windows feedback app where there are at least 5 million insiders giving feedback on every OS build and trust me, the new lock screen-unlocking animation in W10M is not in the most voted list..
    I hope you are smart enough to understand that.. ;) and to be accurate, give or take 1 million from the number of insiders I mentioned above :p
  • "Most voted as a step backward" *
  • I spend time in the feedback app everyday. I know it's not a priority to most. Ffs, it's not even that big of a priority to *me*. I was addressing your presuming to speak on behalf of some "majority" while simply assuming that they agree with you about the new animation.
  • this is a bug? xD i like it this way :3
  • Why fix? This was in 8.1 the way. I like the new way in 10
  • It's not a bug, that was intentional for whatever reason. They just trying to imitate how the iOS lock screen animates, but they didn't even copy very well, heck it was even complained by iOS users before because of slow animation sequence. The full sliding lockscreen of Windows Phone was better in implementation since its got faster animation and more sensible. Usability was also better in Windows Phone Lockscreen since its more obvious for user to slide up to unlock since you can peek what's underneath it. Since that it was even voted to be like this way, though Microsoft implementation wasn't even polished, for example when unlocking it only fades out the lockscreen but it doesn't fades in or gives animation for whatever screen it unlocks. It just pops-in without fade at all.
  • The change is most defintely on purpose, so there is nothing to fix. I prefer it the new way. (and no, that does not mean everyone does, but it is most probably here to stay.)
  • Well that sucks. I have encountered a bug in this build which wasn't present on previous insider builds on my 930. Every time I plug in headphones, the phone periodically switches between phone speakers and headphones after every 10 seconds or so. 10 seconds headphones, 10 seconds speaker, it's so annoying because every time the sound switches groove pauses the audio! So so annoying. Is anyone else having this issue?
  • Sounds like a hardware issue.. Never seen such a bug in Feedback app as well.. You better try a hard reset..
  • i have an idea/ Try to go in the gadgets app . delete all wirde accesories which should be your headphones then plug it in again!. else go check your phone :D
  • hardware issue, no one else getting this bug, 
  • My ATT 950 hasn't received any updates for over two months. Just checked, didn't see this update either.
  • Same here.
  • you missed out because this update made the phone way better, battery life improve and much smoother, i use att 950
  • I've checkout all nite nothing yet from AT&T yet either. The strange thing is Windows central didn't mention AT&T in the article which they usually do.
  • They don't want to admit that Microsoft isn't updating the phones directly as promised. AT&T controls the updates, so they won't be coming faster and will soon be EOLed. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • The edge bug cause my search results to basically distort the page making it un readable
  • It happens mainly right after you start scrolling through search results
  • and still, no firmware for AT&T 950s :(
  • haa haa. They're too busy testing iOS 9.4.
  • what do it do the firmware, I only ask because my att 950 works really well, no signal issues, no reboots, no glitches or bugs, this update was really good for bug fixes, the phone should of had this update when it came out last year
  • You have an att 950?
  • Nothing here, still on .29, 950XL Netherlands
  • Hmm, i still have that settings are out of date with outlook (920 running .107). I don't mind entering my password for one account. But when you have it do it for 10 accounts... It is rather tiresome lol.
  • I'm not able to load pdfs on Edge for the.last several days either on my phone on.107 on my Lumia 1520 nor on my laptop at the office. Fixing to try on my home desktop
  • On desktop edge and mobile internet explorer (wp 8.1) there's just one pdf document that refuses to download/open. It open in desktop IE though
  • Downloading now in ireland. Still haven't received the latest firmware update though.
  • It's already downloading.
  • Off topic how is windows phone encryption compare to iPhone? It looks like apple is fighting for privacy alone.
  • Windows Phone encryption makes iPhone look like a joke, see: BitLocker
  • Im sure the FBI finds the joke to be funny hence the court order asking Apple to decrypt the San Bernardino phone. If the USA FBI cant crack it then id say its good enough for the average consumer. Wouldn't you agree?
  • Both are 256 bit encryptions, so both should be just as safe. Ticomfreak is just fanboying, BitLocker on WP is just software based whereas Apples alternative combines a physical 256 bit aes crypto engine (built into the phone between the flash storage and main system memory) with software based encryption. iPhones data protect is open source, BitLocker is closed. For everyday use both should be as safe, but for people/companies with highly sensitive stuff, iPhone (or Android with some good 3rd party encryption) is probably the best bet. Edit: And yeah, even the FBI can't crack the iPhone encryption: Letter from Tim Cook to the customers:
    Articles on The Verge: Edit 2: spazzmeister beat me to it :p
  • Lol sure, and 14 years old can't find enough security holes to jailbreak every single ios version, seems legit
  • Jailbreaking a phone and accessing encrypted information is not the same thing, you know.
  • Started downloading 10mins ago in UK. Unlocked SIM free 950XL
  • When for Fierce XL
  • Same question here...just got mine yesterday
  • Haha, so you did end up going for it. How do you like it so far?
  • Yep! Really like it so far! Haven't had any speed or "Loading.../Resuming..." Issues at all. How do you like it?
  • 550 and 650 are not include to this update. Source:
  • "There are no FIRMWARE updates available yet for Lumia 550/650..." This is an OS update.
  • My son will be happy that the Windows Hello text no longer remains stuck on the screen in Kids Corner!  I guess we can file that under "reliability and stability improvements."
  • Interesting. Since I installed the latest Fast Ring update, I have been receiving the Outlook settings out of date message. I did not get it before this update. I checked and I have time latest update.

  • thats weird, do not have this on att 950, what phone you using
  • Change log:
  • Soon
  • Anyone else having an issue where the messaging app is extremely laggy, crashes half the time? Everything else works pretty well but texting is a nightmare, using a 950 XL
  • Loads slower ( annoyingly slower )... But never crashed here
  • Using L625 to test insider builds.. 950 is running fine with build .79
  • I never had any crashes with it prior to .107, but it's now crashed on me a few times when hitting the message send button in .107 on my 950
  • no crashes or slow down on att 950
  • Anyone know if 107 brings VVM support to the OS on dual SIM devies?  So want a 950XL but am not going to buy without that.
  • dont know, but I know how you feel, I like the VVM on my att 950
  • Wow have the finally cracked it, went to start the update already at 2%
  • Change to update system to now require phone to be plugged into a charger when downloading and preparing phone software updates.​
    WHY? It was OK. I'd prefer options like "don't download if battery is under 60%" or complitely optional, but not like it is now
  • I'd understand if the requirement was for the actual installation (cog screen), as that's where a loss of power is likely to cause issues, but I agree that it really shouldn't be necessary for downloading and prep.
  • Actually download and preparation are consuming most battery
  • This update has been rock solid for me (fast ring). The only ongoing issue for me is that when I disconnect from WiFi, my Lumia Icon does not have any cellular data, even if LTE is displayed. Only a soft reset solves this issue which has me re-starting my phone every time I leave my office building. Not a deal breaker, but an annoyance nevertheless.
  • Have you tried to turn on/off Airplane mode?
  • Yes, it doesn't work. I've tried different combinations (turn WiFi off and on, turn cell data off and on, airplane mode) to no avail.
  • Wish they release a stable build for 8.1 devices too, soon :-/
  • I'm on insider already for this build on my lumia950xl , so should I leave the insider preview to get official build ?
  • Is this available on the Alcatel touch fierce XL?
  • Was wondering the same thing. Just picked up a Fierce XL yesterday.
  • Still no update for me.....
  • Loading...... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Not a single issue of "Loading..." Or "Resuming..." On my device (new Fierce XL)
  • Seems faster
  • Hi, does anyone of you have the same problem, I'm using build 10586.107 lumia 730 when i buy a game at the store using American express i received text messages for the transaction, but then the game i buy still showing buy option. When i was on wp8.1 there is no problem like this
  • But Dan - when will my poor, sad AT&T Lumia 950 get that lucious firmware update? It wants it. It needs it.
  • AT&T has already EOLed the 950. You will not be getting updates any longer. J/K! You will get updates for a couple more months. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Not to rush things. But.... Those aren't the only Windows 10 phones out. Yes, the new Alcatel. It came with .63 and I'd love to get to .107.
    None of the Insider Rings work yet, we got WDRT support s couple days ago.
  • Windows 10 mobile 10586.107 hit public release... For real? ( reads for Lumia 950, 950 xl. 550) dammit
  • The end part was added later.. ;)
  • Indeed it was, i was about to go and reflash my 920 back to Wp8.1 in anticipation. But i refreshed the article just incase lol.
  • Got me excited too after being an Insider on my L925 and now owning a Fierce XL I would be able to get the newest build for my new device. .107 ran well on my L925, so I suspect it would be great on my new phone.
  • Downloading atm with 950 XL Netherlands. Its abouth time we get the update Posted via the Windows Central App for Android Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Platinum Gold
  • Yea! Canada 950XL downloaded and installing now!  Be dying for a new one to push past .29!  Big update for me!
  • Me too!
    Only using official update's on my Lumia 950 XL in Canada so far. 10586.00 to 10586.29 to 10586.107
    So far fantastic! Can't wait for Redstone!
  • For F sakes its about time we got something. Now to see if it makes any difference
  • Am I the only person with a 950XL who's phone resets when trying to take a picture (happens about 70% of the time)
  • It sounds like a rare bug to me. Do a hard reset, then update all the apps then update he OS again.
  • Bluetooth connectivity between a Lumia 830 and a Chevy Equinox still buggy.
  • Sounds lime a Chevy problem.
  • Can I turn this into a Chevy vs. Ford debate? Lol J/K 2013 Ford Explorer with Sync by Microsoft works fine here with L925 and Fierce XL. Both on W10M
  • I keep getting an error saying unable to open files. I'm trying to update from .71 anybody know a fix?
  • Is it me or does the 10586.170 build charge the phone faster
  • @pedmar007. 0.0 build .170? You from the future or something?! :P
  • LOL
  • Have they fixed the glitch where the phone will switch to vibrate after disconnecting from anything with bluetooth audio?
  • I just connected and disconnected to a Bluetooth speaker and none of the other volume settings were altered (changed to vibrate). AT&T L950
  • Nope. Still does it for me. After listening to something via bluetooth, I disconnect and its on vibrate with volume still saying 8 which makes no sense. So annoying.
  • So your device reads it's on level 8 for notifications, but it vibrates when you receive a notification? Trying to make sure i understand the issue. I'm going to try it again.
  • Okay, connected to my Bluetooth speaker, my Motorola Whisper and my car. I used Pandora and Groove. I had vibrate turned on and off with all volumes set to max. I connected then disconnected from each device then called my phone and it rang each time on my 950. I'm not sure why your phone is doing that. It's really unfortunate. My 950 gets better each update and I wish my experience was the same for everyone. On .29 I wanted to throw my 950 against a wall.
  • Plz 950xl, work! An extra prayer for live tiles thats useable in day to day, and lock screen apps that update, at all.
  • Wow...i was just confused to install 107 as i was a non insider...just yest i installed windows insider app and upgraded to 107...and today its out is working great as of now...

  • How about reading the article that said Feb. 29?
  • After trying out Windows Mobile 10 I can only describe it in 2 words.  Absolutely embarrassing.  What a POS.  I will be sticking with 8.1 for a while to come.  After that I think my next phone will not be in the MS ecosystem. It's been a hell of a ride since the WP7 days with my Trophy.  But I feel like it's time to get off the train.
  • Bye
  • Finaly someone who is not blinded by the fanboysm! 
  • Only a troll
  • Nice...updating...
  • Downloading now
  • I'm getting the update now. Cool!
  • Who cares, where is the FW update to fix 4k video, BT and camera issues. This update doesnt fix BT btw.
  • W10M update being stuck at 0% 'bug' still exists. I wonder if it will ever be fixed.
  • What I want is firmware update
  • "Fix for a problem that caused erroneous prompts of Outlook account settings being out-of-date for some users, although account settings had not been changed" Nice.
  • Had that happen a few times, the last about 10 minutes ago.
  • Now we will see if the "waiting for AT&T" situation is really any different now. So far, nothing on my 950.
  • Same here.
  • +1 c'mon AT&T...
  • Update just arrived for unlocked 950XL (ATT) on MST. Has it hit yet for you?
  • Nope, nothing yet.
  • Nothing yet. Annoying.
  • I want W10 for Blu Win HD LTE. I know its not perfect, but its a lot nicer.
  • Blu has promised the update so don't worry, it is coming soon™
  • Well I guess I am in the minority here since .107 on my 950XL has lead to phone restarts occurring 4 - 5 times per day and the phone getting really hot chewing through the battery while doing normal tasks (Outlook, Edge browsing [non-video], Tweetium, Facebook etc). Really not looking forward to another hard reset.
  • Seriously! Me too.. My keyboard crashed followed by phone crash!!!
  • So the "cooling" on this phone is ****? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Do you think microsoft engineers are so good they can even ignore physics laws and make energy disappear, like magic? Like talking snakes and virgins giving birth? Awesome
  • It seems you don't actually need to have it plugged but charging (i.e., I use Qi charging not a wire for that matter) in order to start downloading the update...
  • Lol !
  • Fix volume (notification) icon bug, volume bar is at 5 but that icon (bell) still showing phone on silent mode
  • Don't worry, this will all be worked out by next year.... When the market share is 0%..... Sent from Lumia 1020, still the best camera on a phone. Xenon Flash!
  • 928 had xenon flash !
  • But no 40mp camera hehe
  • Lumia 1020 was surpassed quite some time ago. Megapixels are not a measure of quality, only resolution. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Great improvement on Windows Hello coming from .29 production. A second or more faster, and also more reliable. Color me happy.
  • Yep, I agree !
  • Notifications on my Band2 seemed to have improved...
  • Installing it now
  • I think, over 10586.29 the 10586.107 is a decent update.
  • And it still has more bugs than a pile of ****
  • Phone is much more stable/reliable/ the firmware please :)
  • Still waiting AT&T 950...........
  • No lie this update is good, att 950 is faster, smoother, no hiccups, no known glitch as of yet, this is how it should of came out in Novemeber, battery life way better......this was the update everyone was waiting for
  • so non-insider mean 950 950xl 550 :o
  • Done...and it came with the update for Xbox app
  • Build .107 will not be received for other non insiders.... Still the build is unstable as mentioned by many insiders... Bl**dy fuc*ing Microsoft is still not capable of doing things right.... This build will roll back and we have to wait months and years for them to fix and release.. Blo*dy fuc*ing Microsoft you are pathetic..... You stupid people in Microsoft.....
  • No it's not. Insider builds are full of telemetry and send a lot of data to Microsoft, the same as android with the little difference that it is sending you personal data, it's to make google earn money and those are """"stable"""" builds. So no, insider builds are not a reliable stability indicators
  • So if build is not stable in insiders how to trust to use those for daily usage or non insider phones...
  • Have the keyboard crashes been taken care of? As a fast insider this build wrecked my mobile .... :(
  • Going from .29 to .107 . I expect to see a pretty long changelog :D  .  I have never been so excited about updates on ios or android  !
  • You can't see any new features but you can feel the fluidity / improved performance of the OS
  • Using on the 930 and all works pretty well except the Camera app, crashes randomly after taking pictures and Living Images doesn't work at all. Anyone else have the same?
  • Choose the best lighting doesn't work for me and living images a bit on and off too
  • I got this update for my 1320 little while back. And I'm set to "production" on the insiders app. How come im getting this update ?
  • Probably because it has become production level for other phones. Not sure, though, find the insider rules about the rings a bit confusing
  • I can't get the update. I tried insider slow ring earlier this week with no luck. Is it because I'm stuck with old firmware? I'm on att with a att branded 950.
  • I don't know exactly about your carrier.,
    But try updating by leaving the Insider program or by switching to Production Ring..
    ( Note : Reboot ur device after switching ring / leaving the program )
  • Receiving the update on lumia 640 with Windows 10 but set back on production cycle. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I've been using this build on my 640XL and I have to say I feel it's a major step backwards in performance and reliability. Way more crashes, email out of sync notifications again, just general weirdness that was fixed at one time. The previous build was way better Imo.
  • WhatsApp wont launch after this update...! any one else facing this issue?
  • Had same issue with .63 and occasionally .71. Tried soft reset and uninstall and reinstall and things got better
  • Glad they are continually improving win10 mobile but hurry it along Microsoft!
  • going to dump my NOKIA LUMIA 720 & HOTMAIL ID too
    the microsoft is baised towards old nokia products
  • Bye! :)
  • So far so good here on XL
  • I have the .107 on my 640 XL , i haven't observed any problems yet.
  • Bluetooth disconnects and network drops...... how on earth is this RTM?
  • wifi performance issuess such as drops and very low speed, have been present on the 950s ever since these were launched and MS is not capable of fixing this.
  • 950 XL German CV, .29 with firmware 16025, never been in insider -> nothing yet.
  • Just waiting for the time when i will look at a windows phone and feel nothing.
  • Wow...sounds like you might already be there. Picked up a new Fierce XL and it's great for a budget W10M device!
  • Why is my 920 getting the update? I am not an "indider" nor my phone is any of those reported here!
  • Are you joking
  • Why would I joke? I am as serious as Microsoft is about its apps on Android and iOS stores.
  • Dude... You are really Serious. I believe you.
  • Lucky to be you...
  • Does anyone know if this fixes the system data eating bug?
  • 1.Why "quiet hours" is still only part of Cortana (more than half of world cant use it!!!)? 2."Double tap to wake" still not available for 950XL an other new MS phones? 3.Sensitivity settings for screen still not available for 950XL an other new MS phones?
  • Thank you Microsoft to forgot Belgium. We have finaly 10586.29 on lumia 950 and 959 XL. Only the rest of the World get updates in the future
  • Please remember Urbanus. He ones made a remark that he did not mind that (people said that) Belgium was 10 years behind (the rest of the world). His comment was that if the world would come to an end Belgium still had 10 years to go.
  • Here in the Netherlands my 950xl got the .29 update in december and the .107 update last night.
  • .107 is very solid! Had only one freezing bug when I was listening music on toilet and shut groove app down when music started playing (music plays in background). had to hard reset. but anyways not much "freezing".
    Send from my Mighty Multipurpose Mega Toilet.

  • Ha ha ha ..
    I think it gets freeze just b coz of Nasty smell in ur toilet..
  • Installed, works well.
  • It has literally taken me 4 minutes tapping the comment box for t
    And this what the edge browser i type. I am watching this letters.
    Wtf this is broken.
  • Downloading now here in Australia
  • Arrived™.
  • I'm glad they fixed Bitlocker. I needed to install 8.1 via recovery tool and update to Win10M to get pass bitlocker screen after hard reset.
  • Holy shitballs. I had to use my desktop PC to comment because the edge browser on my 640xl (with the .107 build). refuses to load the whole page or let me type a coherent sentence. My comment from my phone is above. That is all I could get typed in 10 minutes of trying to comment.   One positive is Word Flow actually does work with/in Edge now. So it now works everywhere. Edge is a train wreck on my phone. It's so bad and slow the I cant use it without wanting to throw my phone against the wall.   I am a Windows Phone fan, but w10m is bad. Like Android 5 years ago bad. Hardly anything works well on w10m. 8.1 was/is the best mobile OS out there IMO.   w10m is going to kill Windows Phone.
  • Have you tried doing a reset without restoring the backup?
  • I have a feeling we're gonna have to wait longer for the W10M upgrade to come to our WP8.1 :( .
  • Truly.....
  • WP = Waiting Peoples.
  • ready to download here
  • Tasks?
  • When is release windows 10 original mobile update for 640 xl lte?? Any body can tell me???
  • I have got the update on my Lumia 550 and I am downloading it over 4G LTE network. Yayyyy! :)
  • Installed update last night. Seems to be working ok on my 950xl. Only issue so far seems to be excessive battery drain but I'm guessing that will sort itself out. Other than that, pretty happy so far
  • 950xl here. No problems at all here
  • How much data we need to download windows 10 mobile????
  • Does anyone else have problems with e-mail notifications with this build? After installing this (fast ring) I stopped having them. I mean they show up in the live tile but not in noticication center. Therefore I don't get them in my Garmin Vivoactive. Tried setting them of and then back on, not working. Did softreset on phone, not working. I do get them on Microsoft Band, the first one but not on vivoactive or the actual phone...
  • Just reset your phone after the update and Ta-Da!!! Battery problem will be solved.... :)
  • When will come for Lumia 640?
  • Nobody is Perfect....Nothing is Perfect...we just get used to things and feels its good for oneself. Stop whining and haters please do buy Nokia 1100 THE BEST Nokia Handset. Ha ha ha ha
  • 950XL dual sim unlocked - Portugal... Downloaded and installed yesterday night. No time to evaluate but I had no problems in the update... Need to check Bluetooth improvement, maybe this time I can connect to my car (but I think the problem is on the car side)
  • Folks...please! Just be honest and openly say that 8.1 was and still is the leading OS today...and not 10! C'MON!
  • Way more optimized and better in a lot of ways. The best one for me is that 8 1 just works, that is still, after this patch, a no go on 950XL
  • What a joke update. Fixes nothing as far as i can see.
  • My L950XL sometimes takes abit of time to respond after i just played a game. I have also experienced issues with Windows hello where it took abit longer than expected to unlock
  • Not On At&t. Thought they went going to be able to block the updates anymore.
  • Working pretty well with Lumia 1320.. Hard reset after the update. Via production ring. Now my phone and laptop are equals xD
  • Anyone else lost WiFi calling options on their 950xl since this update?
  • If win10 mobile is going public update... I still use the window phone 8.1... Hahahah.. Win10 mobile still bugging..
  •   Lumia 950 single sim ...10586.107 first 3 hours all ok...but after that HELLO stopped working at all....i needed soft reset to have that RED light again :)... i still have that strange sound from time to time from speaker -- i believe i still have that carier or sim update message after every on .29.... (romanian carrier digi.mobil set on manual ..on automatic signal lost and up again with .29) phone is "faster" and responsive that on .29 .... pls Microsoft :) give up double tap wake...i dont think that power button is a "quality thing" and after some time will "die" (3 days Lumia 950 owner...i still have to learn )  
  • They took away the whole Gesture features.and added double tap to close.
  • (can't edit later post) 5. give us double tap wake...i dont think that power button is a "quality thing" and after some time will "die" (3 days Lumia 950 owner...i still have to learn ) 6. WIFI bug..... if i leave the area and return no auto conection...still have to disable/enable wifi why windows 10 mobile works with only 7 tasks????? when i press long back and tasks are open.....only 7 tasks+start ....and i opened 10-15 (for testing) ...older ones are replaced with new ones... Glance BUG...but i'll love it like a future feature :) - i have it on GREEN but if i lock the phone while i'm watching a movie (only in landscape) it turns into YELLOW (and this is not o color option in glance settings)....i'll like to have it's good to know you left a media playing      
  • AT&T, when in Brooklyn NY will we get this update?
  • Guys... Good news WINDOWS10 mobile will be out for the non insiders on 29th Feb!
    Well this is what Microsoft have said in their offical facebook page (MEXICO).
  • Still haven't received the firmware update released to US customers a week ago or so. Unenrolled from insider still no update. I'm in UK, unlocked device.
  • I have a 950 locked to AT&T. I still have not received the notification to get update. I thought the carrier didn't matter anymore!! Wasn't that one of the big deals about Windows 10??
  • Still waiting on a fix for mobile hotspot. Haven't been able to use that feature yet even though I'm paying for it! :\ It's a good thing I've kept my old phone and can easily switch the sim between the two.
  • How much data is needed to download windows 10 mobile insider preview???

  • For my 950xl it's not showing any update and am from India. Is there any body with the same problem
  • Can't stand when my camera decides to start "saving" after I take a few pics. Please fix this. BTW, the comments on this article are hilarious!
  • Full of hope I did the upgrade this morning, it took about 50 mins and completed with no error messages.  Alas, it has not solved the spotaneous reboot issue my 950XL has suffered from since I bought it.  When is the next update?
  • Still waiting for the update that stops my 950 XL from rebooting 10x a week.
  • Windows Hello works a lot Faster now.
  • Not getting notifications from email... this update broke it :(
  • Hi
  • Connectivity improvements over bluetooth??? Really, crashed on first time in car after update.
  • Quiet hours is a feature is a lot...shift work...if it gets broken with this update..i think I will wait...
  • Does anyone get flickering screens while browsing/reading articles in edge....??
  • Does w10m finally solve increasing other storage issue and also cleanup failed app installs automatically? Did MS finally add true cache management for w10m?
  • hi i'm using microsoft 540 i don't enroll insider this .107 build can i get from microsoft care centre.
  • got the update on my lumia 1320 i used to be in the insiders but left , so the update is for any lumia with windows 10 installed
  • hum i thinkthis same patch number is geting old, been a while since my lumia 930 recieved a new update, personally im after the final finished none insider version.  Ps still taking me 10 sec to load up windows central on ie any ideas?
  • I love watching all my iphone friends, and its m ost people pay for cinema tickets, macdonalds and starbuck  but they all stare at my windows phone in discust when i try lol.  true that.
  • Microsoft plse release the finished version for a lumia 930 its good enough for that now, i really just want out of the insider program at this stage, im done with beta testing windows products, ive enjoyed it mostly but i think things over at your shop are too slow even on the fast ring, it just all seems pointless at the progression speed your currently at, it feels like one big joke, so just realease it now plse so i can lower my expectations on fast lane releases and not care.   Thks for adding a flashlight to windows 10, i dont have to press a live tile now, shame you didnt stick windoes gestures in there or more importantly apple pay alternative.
  • I have a L550, but I don't see anything different in terms of performance or any knew features but it's good.
  • The only problem with my phone blue tooth It does not connect to the Bluetooth headset that I have. L550 so I hope this update will change that.
  • I haven't received it yet on my AT&T Lumia 950 currently running 10586.29. waiting patently for update
  • Well I had a few minor issues with W10M, but I had a few minor issues with iOS, and more issues with Android.  The Lumia 950 was my first windows mobile device and I think that it’s great.  Much prefer it to my iPhone.  Continuum is amazing! I don’t use continuum often but when I do use it I can see having it saves lots of time and inconvenience. Overall I think W10M is greatly maligned. I think it is a very pleasant, easily navigable, intuitive system.  With a collection of features that put it ahead of Android or iOS for my use.  I have even found all the apps I wanted are available.  I don’t know what all the complaints are about.  
  • This was on a thread with 10586.107 Offical Release: PSA: Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.107 is available for non-Lumia phones, too The official release is just one the stable version of insider fast build (preview build). .107 could be it and if so, it will happen soon. I would wait.     0 2 hours ago   reply gahbmwm5     Hmm, I was wondering this too....With a AT&T branded L-950, I opted for the Windows Insider--->Preview Release Ring, which did indeed give me 10.0.10586.107, of course I'm still stuck with Firmware: 01078.00017.15454.xxxx I'm slightly confused with your comment, as I reviewed as this: 'The official 10586.107 is one that is more stable then the Preview Release Ring 10586.107 version...??' Kindly clairify if I'm reviewing this
  • .107 950xl-
    No app crashes
    Stable keyboard
    Improved continuum
    Camera still not showing living images correctly
    Great stability
    Can't comment on Battery life (standby) yet
    ... Overall, glad to say,
    Feels like a real OEM product now.

  • Still waiting for the update in uk
  • I already have it on my 2 1520s. Weirdly, they're both running the same build but there are some apps that run in one unit and not the other. So strange. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • As of Sunday morning still not available for 950 on AT&T.
  • Finally got it today in the US. Rebooting now.
  • I have been waiting for an update which allows me to use the FM Radio in the UK.  When looking to upgrade my phone I read reviews on lots of phones and there feature's, but like normal Micrsoft started changing things without informing anyone.  I upgraded my Lumia 925 to a Lumia 950 and on my check list was a FM radio for when I'm out and about, as with being disabled I have to sit and rest at times. Microsoft advertised the 950 & 950XL to include the FM radio, but after going through everything on my phone and downloading app's to see if they can access it, I find Microsoft have very kindly disabled the FM radio feature in some countries.  This had to be done with a firmware update and I would like to know when we will receive the update to allow the feature I paid for. Vodafone UK say  that I should have checked the features before starting my 24 month contract, which leaves me quite annoyed at Microsoft.  Has anyone heard why they have disabled the FM radio on the 950 and if they will be supporting it again.  I have even read that one of the processors in the phone has the FM radio built-in, so there is no excuse for them to disable it unless it was causing major problems with the hardware side of things. Thanks, Ian  
  • I just updated on my L930.
