Yesterday, Microsoft released a new Insider Preview build for Windows 10 on PCs, leaving Mobile users out in the cold. Microsoft says the reason they didn't release a build yesterday was due to a blocking bug, which now appears to have been resolved at build 15025 is now rolling out for Windows 10 Mobile Insiders in the Fast ring.
The Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile is pretty bare, meaning there aren't many new features to be excited about in this release.
- Microsoft Edge can now read aloud: Microsoft Edge will now read aloud* your e-books just like on PC! 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.
- Introducing Collections in Feedback Hub: A few months ago, we asked you what was one of your biggest pieces of feedback about the Feedback Hub. You said, "too many duplicate pieces of feedback!". We love working with you to create a better experience for everyone using the Feedback Hub, so today we are so happy to announce Collections.
- New mono audio option in Ease of Access settings: Visually impaired users use a screen reader application to read content on their phones and information to them, and frequently use headphones or earbuds to hear their device when in meetings or having conversations with others. When doing so, they generally use only one earbud to hear what's being said from their device in one ear so the other ear is free to hear conversations and sounds around them. That can cause them to not hear sounds that may be directed to the other earbud. In order to change the sound to be mono mode and so all audio is directed to both ears, they used to need a physical earphone adapter. You can now switch your audio to mono straight from the new Audio section under Settings > Ease of Access > Other options.
