Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.164 released to Insider Slow and Preview Ring

This afternoon, Microsoft is releasing a new build of Windows 10 Mobile for those on the Slow and Production Rings of the phone Insider program.

The release of build 10586.164 is up from build 10586.122 release six days ago.

The site says the expected features of this new bug fixing release include:

  • Faster saving of screenshots
  • Smoother video playback
  • Opening of PDF files in Edge improvements

Microsoft is likely to publish a full changelog of fixes and improvements on their blog and we'll follow up this article with a full listing of what is new when available.

To grab the update head into Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates. Users must be enrolled in the Insider program using the Windows Insider app.

For those on the Lumia 650, 950 or 950 XL and who are in the Fast Ring you will not see an update as those phones are on the 14xxx branch for Redstone, whereas this release is on the more stable branch, which is pre-Redstone.
